Contact our garage to request an inspection and learn how to reduce your vehicle emissions. We inspect and replace all major components, including pipes, mufflers, and catalytic converters. Your vehicle's engine consumes gasoline and converts it into energy through internal combustion.

As a result, many different harmful gases, such as carbon monoxide, are produced that could have grave effects on your health and the environment. The exhaust system reduces the amount of harmful chemicals in your car and expels safer gases from your vehicle. Your vehicle's exhaust system is composed of many different components, including pipes, a muffler, a manifold, and the catalytic converter. Count on our exhaust repair technicians to ensure each piece of your system is safe for the road.

The Necessity for Exhaust Repair

Don't wait until it's too late before coming in for an exhaust system repair. A faulty exhaust reduces your fuel efficiency and also forces the buildup of smog and contaminants in your engine. Not only does this decrease your engine's performance, but it also increases the likelihood of engine failure.

On top of that, improperly expelled gases can leak into your AC system, circulating poisonous fumes into the cabin. Protect the safety and performance of your vehicle and conduct routine exhaust inspections at our garage. You may be due for a repair if you encounter any of the following:

• Rattling Noises While Idle
• Feelings of Fatigue While Driving
• Smoke Emanating from Tailpipe
• Loud Noises During Operation
• Strange Odors in or Around Vehicle
• Signs of Rust or Corrosion on Exhaust

Specializing in Catalytic Converters

Advances in manufacturing and design have greatly reduced the expulsion of harmful gases from automobiles. Amongst these technological advances is the catalytic converter, a device that helps convert volatile fumes into less harmful gases. Required by law to be installed in all vehicles, the catalytic converter is an essential component of your exhaust. When you need to repair or replace your converter, let us help. Our garage is fully equipped and staffed to provide efficient inspections and service. As its name implies, a catalytic converter encourages chemical reactions within your exhaust system so that harmful pollutants transform into less toxic gases upon leaving your tailpipe. It is composed of several "catalysts" that are made from ceramic and other metals. When gases from the engine travel through your exhaust system, they first pass through the converter. Here, harmful hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide react with the metal to produce carbon dioxide, water, and nitrogen.

Catalytic Converter Maintenance Made Simple

Since all gases produced by your engine must pass through a catalytic converter, it is important to ensure its normal operation. Our mechanics are available to inspect and repair your converter. With more than 10 years of industry experience, we strive to keep up-to-date with industry advances to provide accurate and effective service. We know how to replace the converter, as well as calibrate the engine's computer to encourage optimal performance. Save money and the environment by scheduling an emissions inspection.
