    Car Exhaust Muffler is Shaking / Rattling Repairs in Hamilton

    About the exhaust muffler:

    Mufflers are an important sound reduction device found in the exhaust systems for all cars with combustion engines. When your car’s engine burns fuel, your exhaust valves rapidly open to release highly pressurized gas. As the gas is released, loud noises are produced as exhaust emissions move through your exhaust system.

    The purpose of the muffler is to dampen the sounds created by your exhaust system. Inside a muffler, you will find a set of tubes and chambers. These tubes and chambers are designed to reflect the sound waves produced by the engine and cancel them out to quieten the noise.

    What causes a shaking exhaust muffler?

    A shaking / rattling muffler is usually caused by something repeatedly hitting the exhaust pipe. There are several problems that can cause this. These include:

    • Loose muffler – If the muffler is loose from the rest of the exhaust, it will often bang against the the underneath parts of your car. This will cause loud rattling.
    • Misalignment – When part of your exhaust system mounts begin to wear or fail, they can become misaligned from the rest of the exhaust system. This can cause loud vibrations and rattling
    • Incorrect installation  If an exhaust repair was previously carried out incorrectly, you may experience loud rattling and shaking.
    • Internal failure of muffler parts – if the muffler internal baffles or internal brackets fail and become loose, then you can get an annoying rattle and your exhaust will be less effective.
    • Clogged catalytic converter – The catalytic converter can become blocked and need to be replaced. This may cause vibrations in your exhaust system. Catalytic converter replacement in Hamilton >

     

    How important is this repair?

    As well as being a major annoyance while you are driving, a loose or failed muffler can allow excessive movement in other exhaust components. This can lead to parts wearing more quickly. If the muffler is loose, it can also hang downwards, making contact with the road when you go over bumps. 

    For these reasons, we recommend that you get the muffler inspected by a mechanic. This way, any problems that can worsen over time will be identified.
