Garden Grove Muffler Repair


Many Garden Grove drivers don’t know much about muffler repair also that your exhaust system does so much more than just give you a peaceful ride. It also directs exhaust fumes away from you and your passengers, to improves your engines performance, it improves fuel consumption and lastly your catalytic converter that is part of your exhaust system helps to keep pollutants from escaping into our air. Something Orozco’s Auto Service always makes an effort to help improve.

To get a better understanding of your exhaust systems is learning about the variety of components from your engine to the tailpipe. To start from the beginning of your engines exhaust journey we can start with the exhaust manifold (sometimes referred to as headers) to remove combustion gases from the cylinders. The manifold is linked to a catalytic converter that cleans up the chemical mixture before sending it down the line to a resonator and the muffler, both of which mute the volume of sound produced when the gases roar through the metal pipes.

With this extensive collection of components there’s are several possibilities for an exhaust leak and they are as loud as the traditional broken muffler sound. Each of the exhaust system parts listed above are connected through welds and flanges, and with time and corrosion, these connections can start to loosen. One of the initial signs that exhaust gases are escaping prematurely is a ticking that gets louder or faster when you hit the gas. A ticking sound can also indicate a crack in an exhaust manifold or a hole in any part of the exhaust system. Depending on how serious the leak is, it can often be repaired with a patch or a fresh weld with the experts at Orozco’s Auto Service of Garden Grove.

Luckily, mufflers don’t just stop working overnight without first giving you a few clues that something not right. Usually, a muffler will usually last from 40,000 to 80,000 miles depending on the weather conditions in your area. Excessive water and salt on the the roads for snow can speed up the degradation which will in turn get incrementally louder as the interior chambers and sound-deadening materials break down. It’s not always easy to detect initially, but eventually you’ll notice that your vehicle is getting significantly louder. This generally means either there’s a large break in the exhaust system or your muffler that’s on its way out. Either way, this is the opportune time to Visit Orozco’s Auto Service and have it checked out.
