2017 Volvo XC90 in St Louis, MO

Is your car, truck, or SUV more vocal than you recall? If so, you may want to consider having your vehicle's muffler checked. A key component in your vehicle's exhaust system, the muffler is designed to reduce the noise associated with vehicle emissions. To keep your Volvo running at peak efficiency, it's important to be aware of the warning signs that, if unchecked, can become costly in the long run.

The largest and most obvious sign that your Volvo's muffler is in trouble relates to volume. If you are noticing that your car is making more noise than usual, it is a good indication that your muffler is in need of replacement. Rattling noises are a common issue that can occur with mufflers and require attention as soon as possible.

Another way to make sure your muffler is in working order is to do a visual inspection. Any holes or rust can be deeply problematic. Luckily, they can be easily spotted without any tools other than a jack.

While your checking for holes and rust, you may also want to consider looking for condensation. A little bit is normal, but if you're noticing that your muffler is leaking from multiple spots, it's important to have it serviced as soon as possible.
