You can drive a car without a muffler, but you should not. It is illegal. Driving without a muffler allows many pollutants into the air. Technically yes, a car can be driven without a muffler but there are a few good reasons not to do so. The most important risk of not having a muffler is that there are laws regarding sound levels and a car without a muffler might be over government approved noise levels resulting in not being in compliance with the law and the end result being a fine. Another reason for not doing so is the impact it would have on your vehicle. A muffler on a car will increase its performance, efficiency and power output. It will also decrease the wear and tear on the engines’ parts.
Having a free flow muffler will help improve fuel economy. In most mufflers on the market the air flow is by having the exhaust air take two 180 degree turns u turns. This restricts the airflow and causes immense back pressure. Having a straight through airflow muffler will improve mileage which is just like removing a muffler. By removing a muffler there is reduction in weight and improvement in back pressure. You may be cited for driving without a muffler, as it is required for noise control and pollution control.
Meineke Muffler surprisingly has wonderful pricing on a plethora of automobile repairs. Your automobile may simply need a "charge" for the air conditioning to work properly. The Meineke shop near me doesn't charge for an estimate of repairs. That helps me decide whether I can afford the repairs without having to pay the mechanic to look under the hood.
Dual tailpipes help pull the exhaust away from the engine more quickly, thus avoiding any kind of pressure back-up, especially in a high-output smaller engine. A tailpipe needs a muffler; two tailpipes=two mufflers
If you run the engine without pipes , you will inevitably start a fire under the hood from the flames shooting out of the exhaust ports
You are having a cylinder missfire. take your car to a shop for a tune up.

It depends on how skilled you are with regard to the job. If you have a basic knowledge of how the muffler is attached and the tools to do it, it is within the realm of a DIY project. If not, it's worth the cost of having it done by a pro.

This means you have aload of miles and you have to go to the mechanic or you will fail a transmission test. Sometimes it stays even when a mechanic tries fixing it good luck.Good news scenarioOn Kias and Volkswagons (and maybe others) this light comes on if you don't screw the gas cap on tight enough. Try it, it saves a pile of bucks for having the mechanics check and replace the "thermin wire" or "muffler bearings" (and tighten the gas cap)

Yes, a male can have trich without having symptoms.
There is no trick to this and no meaningful instruction. Mufflers on a 2000 Outback are essentially the same as every vehicle muffler made since they have been building cars. It is a tough job if you don't have right the tools and will to deal with parts that are rusted in place. Having done this job more than once my recommendation is to find a local muffler shop and have them do it. It won't cost much more than doing it yourself. Check on parts cost then call the muffler shop and see how they compare.
Certainly a modified muffler on a 2 stroke-cycle engine will affect gas consumption and power. The reason is that these engines do not have an exhaust valve to keep in the gasoline vapor until it has been fired like a 4 stroke-cycle engine has. The "2 stroke" engine relies on pressure in the tuned muffler to keep the gasoline vapor from shooting right out of the cylinder before the spark plug ignites it. With a "4 stroke" engine, there is an exhaust valve to keep the gasoline vapor in until it is ignited, and the engine isn't much bothered about muffler tuning, size, or even not having a muffler, at all.

I'm having the same issue. I'm trying to replace my front axle and I need to remove the muffler to get to the axle bolt. Please help. I recently replaced the front axle on my STX38 so I took off the muffler as well. The muffler's heat shield needs to come off first, I think there's just two bolts holding that in place on the front of it. If I remember correctly, there were 4 bolts total securing the muffler. There are two bolts towards the front of the muffler that connect vertically to the body of the mower, these need to be removed. If you look at the very top of the muffler where it connects to the engine you'll see another two bolts that need to be removed. I had a tough time getting these two completely out since mine were a bit rusted but they did eventually come off. Once all these bolts are removed, I had to wiggle the muffler out of the bottom of the mower. For the people doing front axle replacement - once the muffler is removed you should have access to the bolt securing the axle.
