Exhaust

The Best Grand Rapids Exhaust System & Muffler Repair Services

At Walker Auto Service LLC we know some drivers like a quiet exhaust system while others prefer a "the louder the better" approach. Either way, an unusual rattle when your car is running is a signal that it is time for an immediate inspection of your exhaust system.

Quiet Exhaust and Muffler Services

Come to Walker Auto Service LLC and keep your exhaust system running smoothly. At Walker Auto Service LLC we know you count on your exhaust system and muffler to reduce noise and normalize your engine's back-pressure. When your exhaust system is faulty it can be very loud, but more importantly, it can impact your engine performance. Whatever the problem, we can repair it and get you back on the road quickly. Come by Walker Auto Service LLC today at 3960 Remembrance Rd NW.

  • Catalytic Converter Replacement: Your catalytic converter is the most expensive part of your exhaust system. When your catalytic converter begins to fail, you will hear a very loud rattling noise or your "check engine light" will begin to flash. Come by Walker Auto Service LLC at 3960 Remembrance Rd NW and we will diagnose the problem right away.
  • O2 Sensor Replacement: Ask any mechanic at Walker Auto Service LLC and they will tell you to have your O2 sensor inspected regularly. Oxygen sensors work in conjunction with your catalytic converter to monitor the amount of oxygen in your car's exhaust system. Your O2 sensor determines if your air to fuel ratio is balanced in real-time as you accelerate or idle. It helps your engine controller adjust the flow of fuel to maintain optimum oxygen to fuel mixture.

High-Performance Header Upgrades

While exhaust manifolds and headers play a similar role, at Walker Auto Service LLC we know they are miles apart on performance. Headers are upgrade parts designed for performance applications, while exhaust manifolds come standard. Both move exhaust away from the cylinder head to the exhaust pipe. Most noticeably, headers and its companion gaskets and wider exhaust pipe are much louder than a traditional manifold. But more importantly, the header improves exhaust system performance.

Exhaust manifolds are frequently formed of cast iron. The cast iron construction of your manifold keeps exhaust from being cleared as efficiently as possible. Headers solve this problem as they are made of individual steel tubes that connect to each cylinder. Header tubes all connect to a single collector pipe. The tubes have a smooth interior that keeps gases flowing evenly to prevent engine back-pressure. If you want the performance of a header but the sound is a problem, talk to our mechanics at Walker Auto Service LLC about an electric exhaust cutout. They are simple to install and allow you to open your exhaust without crawling under your car.

Get The Look Of Custom Exhaust Tubing & Tips

Straight, U, J, and S exhaust tubing are made with a smooth stainless steel or mild steel aluminized metal interior for maximum exhaust flow. At Walker Auto Service LLC exhaust tubing can be configured for a custom exhaust system. Stainless steel exhaust tubing looks sharp and adds longevity to your exhaust system. Complete the look with stylish exhaust tips. Nothing finishes an exhaust pipe better than the crisp clean appearance of a polished stainless steel exhaust pipe tip.

Loud Exhaust and Muffler Services

X-pipe and H-pipes synchronize the balance of the exhaust pulses from each cylinder based on firing order to increase efficiency. Many high-performance car owners like the deeper rumbling sound of H-pipes. If you own a street rod, Lake Pipes and Side Pipes route exhaust along or beside the bottom of your car body offering both increased performance, vintage look, and an aggressive sound. When it comes to trucks and diesel, consider smoke stack exhaust pipes to improve engine efficiency, pulling power and performance.

Testimonials

  • I don't even live in the area anymore and I make sure anytime I have a car giving me issues, I get it taken to Walker Auto. Over the last eight years, I have brought six different cars in for work, and they have been very knowledgeable about all of them. They're not pushy, they're very matter-of-fact, fast, and professional.

  • I live 54 miles away and needed my alternator fixed ASAP so I could get back home. I called all over GR first at the bigger service shops and NO ONE could get me in for a week or two, I thought all was lost. I searched one more time in walker for service shops and these wonder people came up on Google. As a final attempt I called in tears and told them about the situation and right away they had me bring my car down and fix it. If it wasn't for these awesome men I would be stranded still. :) :) :) :) I have now found my new service shop for my car.
