The exhaust system is responsible for collecting and directing harmful emissions away from the vehicle.This system is composed of pipes and tubing designed to streamline vehicle operation while maximizing vehicle performance and efficiency. The exhaust manifold collects the emissions from the engine and funnels the gases through the front pipe to the catalytic converter. The converter transforms these harmful gases, like carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, and nitrogen oxide, into less harmful ones, like oxygen, nitrogen, water vapor, and carbon dioxide.
Our locally owned and operated auto repair shop has the tools and state-of-the-art infrastructure to diagnose and repair exhaust systems of all models and makes.
