Exhaust System Repair
Did you know that the main cause of failed mufflers is simply a broken clamp? And that the cost of a clamp amounts to pocket change? If you’re aware of this, chances are you already deal with us, because at SK Automotive Specialists we believe an informed customer is a contented customer. We like to help take the mystery out of automotive repairs. Our clients really appreciate that. Besides, explaining about all of the “little extras” we provide is good for business.
For example, when you bring your car in for an oil change, our technicians always check the exhaust system. Just a “little wiggle here, and a little wiggle there” to make sure everything is firm and tight. You may not even be aware, and yet this simple precaution could save you hundreds of dollars in unnecessary repairs.
How? Because those “little wiggles” pre-test the clamps. If a clamp gives out while your vehicle is in operation, it could well lead to extensive exhaust system repairs. Repairs that were preventable! Like so many other things our technicians do, taking the time to check the clamps on your muffler and pipes can save you unnecessary expense.
This alone won’t prevent exhaust failures. But if you do require an exhaust system, we can help with that as well. And our mufflers come with a Lifetime Warranty, of course. But our mufflers also come with something extra. They come with a little wiggle, too!
Exhaust System Repair Service
The purpose of an exhaust system in a vehicle is to make sure that the toxic fumes do not linger inside the car and that the engine is running correctly. A proper exhaust system works in helping reduce the amount of toxic emissions being released in the environment. It is important to maintain the exhaust pipes in the car because over time built up exhaust fumes can lead to the deterioration of the engine, which leads to repairs.
However, we at SK Automotive provide top notch exhaust repair. To understand how exhaust system repairs might be needed, you need to understand what the exhaust system is.
Exhaust manifolds connect to the cylinder heads -> gas gets analyzed by oxygen sensors -> refined by the catalytic converter -> muffled by the muffler.
Any of these components can break down and cause problems. SK Automotive will find the problem and fix it as soon as possible.
How do you know if your exhaust engine needs repairing? Here are some signs.
- Hearing vibrations: if you hear a vibration or experience a loss of power anytime you are driving your vehicle, the cause of the problem could be the exhaust – there might be a hole or a disconnected part in the system.
- Failed catalytic converter: this occurs when you hear a loud sound (akin to someone making a clanking sound) when the car is idle.
- Increased volume of exhaust: a rumbling noise coming out of your exhaust pipe is a sure-fire sign of something wrong.
Whatever the problem may be, bring in your car to SK Automotive where you will get repairs at a competitive price. We offer a full range of exhaust system repair options that will best suit your needs.
