The muffler acts as a soundproofing device for your vehicle. It is made up of a pipe or chambers with holes. It is a part of the exhaust system. The exhaust system is also made up of sensors, clamps and pipes. Your mufflers and exhausts have to work properly in order for your vehicle to function the way that it should. You may notice that the check engine line is on. Your vehicle may also get fewer miles per gallon. When there is a problem with the exhaust, your vehicle has to work harder. That is why it will consume more fuel.

A gas smell is another sign that something is wrong with the exhaust system. If the tubes or pipes are damaged, then gas will start to escape. These fumes can also end up inside of the cabin of your car.
