Mufflers & Exhaust
Muffler & Exhaust Repair
Your vehicle’s exhaust system is extremely important. It greatly affects the performance of your car or truck, and it can also save your life by diverting deadly carbon monoxide fumes away from the vehicle. Here is what you need to know about your exhaust system and how to identify if you might have exhaust problems that you’ll want to get inspected and repaired at Vehicle Masters.
The Purpose of the Exhaust System
When the exhaust system is doing its job, you won’t even notice it. The main purpose is to divert exhaust fumes away from your engine and decrease their harmfulness. If those exhaust fumes are not being expelled properly, then it can lead to major deterioration within the engine compartment. Likewise, a build-up of carbon monoxide gas can be deadly if it starts seeping into the passenger cabin.
A well-running exhaust system will reduce your vehicle’s emissions and it can even improve your fuel economy. Vehicle Masters has all your exhaust system maintenance and repair needs covered.

Exhaust System Components
There are four primary components to most traditional exhaust systems:
OFF-ROAD, HI PERFORMANCE,
AND POWERSPORTS VEHICLES
Connects to the engine and expels exhaust fumes away from the engine and into the other exhaust system components.
The catalytic converter will burn off and remove as much of the toxins as possible in your exhaust fumes, thus reducing air pollution and minimizing deadly carbon monoxide.
The muffler minimizes the sound coming from your exhaust, so that your vehicle runs as quietly as possible (unless you have a custom exhaust that you want to sound louder on purpose).
Pipes connect the various exhaust system components to conduct the travel of the fumes, ultimately expelling out of the tail pipe at the back of your vehicle.
