Muffler/Exhaust Services and Maintence

 

Your vehicle's exhaust system works hard to keep the gasses and noises that your engine produces in check. Most o.e.m. exhaust systems have multiple mufflers to help reduce the noise and make driving a more peaceful experience.

Catalytic Converter

Catalytic converters are more than just filters, they reduce the toxicity of emissions from a vehicle’s combustion engine. The first models of these catalytic converters came in 1975 on series-production automobiles in response to the tightening EPA regulations on automobile exhaust. These first used pellet-style catalysts. But now, catalytic converters are made with a honeycomb design that makes these more effective in changing gases to more environment-friendly gases.
Since its earliest conception, catalytic converters have done an important job of preventing noxious gases from continually polluting the air. But, catalytic converters don’t last that long. Every moment you drive your car, the catalytic converter seeps all the gas that the engine produces. Imagine all the fumes that the it has to endure. These really need to be replaced if they’re worn out. If you won’t, your local police might get you. These need to be replaced to be able to pass your local emissions test.

Emissions

Today’s complex emission control systems require advanced training and diagnostic equipment for proper diagnosis and servicing. Our commitment to keeping up with technology advances ensures you the peace-of-mind that your vehicle will be diagnosed by a highly skilled and knowledgeable technician committed to saving you time and money.

The service at the Car Hospital was great! They were able to get my car in on short notice, were very quick (within a couple hours), and presented a reasonable price! I will be going back the next time I need work done on my car.
