If your car is suddenly much louder when you are driving down the road, you could have hole in your exhaust system. While a hole in your muffler should be a quick repair, it's necessary to have your entire exhaust system checked to make sure there aren't additional holes.

Your exhaust system is made out of metal that comes in contact with road salt and other chemicals. Over time, the metal is going to corrode, causing holes in the exhaust. You may notice a loud car, or smell fumes coming into your car. Bring your car to a Lithia Auto Store location before you continue to breathe in the fumes.

The exhaust system protects both you and the earth from harmful emissions. If your car fails an inspection because of emissions, this means that your car is producing dangerous toxins. The problem needs to be fixed so that you can pass your next inspection.
