While most people find what goes on under the hood of their car to be unfamiliar territory, it helps to understand the functioning of your engine in the long run. Not only will you have a greater appreciation of how your car works, but you will also save money by recognizing a small issue before it becomes a big problem.

Your exhaust system is composed of a muffler and an exhaust, and both work together to solve a variety of functions within your engine. The exhaust system collects the gases that are the byproduct of your engine's combustion. It then sends them through a variety of filtration systems, like the catalytic converter, in order to scrub them of harmful substances.

The last part of the journey is through the muffler, where the noisy sound of the pressurized gases is softened before being released into the atmosphere.
