Your car's exhaust system is crucial to your car's performance -- affecting safety, pollution and comfort. While the main purposes of the exhaust system are to condition and remove exhaust gases from the car and to reduce engine noise, several aspects of the system are designed specifically for their effect on the engine's performance.
Backpressure helps regulate the temperature of the engine's cylinders, making it run smoother. Too much backpressure, though, can cause the engine to lose power, stall, or even stop running.
A turbocharger adds power by improving the air intake into the cylinders. Conventional intake designs merely draw air into the cylinders; a turbocharged engine forces air at higher pressure into the cylinder, producing a more powerful combustion and increasing engine performance.
Midas is the undisputed global leader in quality exhaust system components.
We take pride in designing mufflers, pipes and other exhaust components peerless in the auto industry. Midas catalytic converters meet stringent EPA and CARB requirements for pollution reduction.

Q: My car is older, so it seems to make more noise. How do I know when mufflers go bad?
A: Your car exhaust system is pretty complex. Excess noise could be from cracks or holes in manifolds or gaskets. On your muffler itself, excessive rust on a muffler, on holes in a muffler can cause a louder ride. Bad mufflers may also lead to increased pollution and even a rough idle. If you're not sure, stop by your local Midas to get it checked out.
Q: How do mufflers actually work? Are mufflers made of special sound-proof material?
A: Your exhaust system -- and mufflers in particular -- is very sophisticated. Technically, your muffler has baffled passages that the exhaust gases move through to muffle engine sound. But if you were to cut away your muffler, you'd find some tubes with holes in them. Sounds simple, but inside your muffler, these elements work together to have the sound waves hit one another to reduce the noise. Your muffler is actually a finely tuned instrument.
Q: Besides excess noise and rough idling, what are some other things I need to watch out for with my car's exhaust system?
A: Excessive rust or broken bolts could cause mufflers, pipes, and other parts of the exhaust system to hang dangerously low, resulting in a hazard for the people driving behind you. However, these aren't always things that can be easily assessed by just peeking underneath your car. As a rule, we recommend having your exhaust system inspected at least once a year.
