The first combustion engine developed by J. J. Étienne Lenoi in 1859 had a small metal reducer on the end of the exhaust designed to reduce backfiring. It was not designed to reduce emissions or sound. Since then, mufflers have evolved and are required components on any vehicle that operates on U.S. roads.

Today's mufflers serve two functions:

  • To reduce exhaust system noise that is directed from exhaust ports to the exhaust pipes
  • To help direct exhaust gases out of the engine
There are some tell-tale signs of exhaust system issues. If you’re wondering what causes a muffler to go bad, call auto repair experts at Big Lake Automotive.

When you turn your key in the ignition do you just hear clicking sounds instead of the engine coming to life? If this is your situation, you may be wondering what causes electrical problems in cars. Electrical problems are less common in today’s cars than other kinds of problems but they are also more difficult to diagnose than most. Unlike brakes that squeak or an engine that rattles, electrical problems don’t always announce themselves in a way that is easy to understand.

The complicated nature of electrical issues generally requires the use of specialized diagnostic equipment to identify the root cause of the problem. This equipment accesses the data stored in the vehicle’s computer that indicates how the different components are operating.  It can then pinpoint the exact problem so that the required repair can be made.
