Complete Auto Repair Service Mufflers and Exhaust

Mufflers and Exhaust = Jeep's, Truck's, Cars ...

1. What is a muffler?

A muffler is a device that is part of your vehicle’s exhaust system. The function of a muffler is to reduce the amount of noise that comes from your vehicle’s engine. The design of the muffler includes steel pipes with chambers inside that have been tuned like an instrument to reflect and cancel most of the noise coming from your engine.

 2. What are the benefits of using a high performance muffler?

Not only do high performance mufflers reduce the amount of noise your car makes, they also help increase the efficiency, power output and the performance of your engine. High performance mufflers reduce the amount of back pressure in the exhaust system allowing the engine to work more efficiently. If you really want to give your vehicle a jump start, you should choose a muffler pipe that is larger in diameter and has better air intake like a “cold air intake” style.

 3. What types of mufflers are there?

Some of our products include:  Flowmaster                    



4. How do I know which type of muffler will be best for me?

Most people don’t have a lot of knowledge about mufflers which is why most people feel a little confused and overwhelmed when choosing a muffler for their vehicle. That is where we come in.  We have the knowledge and skills to best help you make your decision.  We take the time to find out which type of muffler will more than meet your needs. We want our customers to know that we are here and eager to answer any question or concern you may have.

 5. How do I know if I need to repair or replace my muffler?

That is a good question. If your muffler is leaking, been bent or become rusted, chances are it is time for it to be replaced.  We are happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have about the condition of your muffler.

    Green Driving Tips

C.A.R.S. and Washington State Auto Dealers

Did you know - Smart and safe driving can improve fuel economy by up to 33%

1) Keep rolling in traffic.  it can take 20% more fuel to accelerate from a full stop than from 5mph. anticipate stops and coast as much as possible.

2)  Avoid unnecessary idling.  When you idle, you get zero miles per gallon, increase engine wear and air pollution goes up.

3)  Drive you vehicle to warm it up.  automobiles today don't need a warm-up.  Even on cold morning's, running your engine for 30 seconds is all you need.

4)  Maintain an optimum highway speed for good mileage. Even going more than 60 mph uses more fuel.    Use Cruise Control.  Cruise control helps maintain a steady speed and can provide a 7% average fuel savings.

5)  Slow down.  Fuel economy decreases about 1% for every mph over 55. 

6)  Avoid rapid Stats and Stops.  you'll maximize mileage and save dollars at the pump.

7)  Combine Trips.  you engine runs more efficiently once it's warmed up, so make it in one trip when ever you can.

Most of all enjoy your Trips by making sure you car is in good working order.

Owning a JEEP CARS = Complete Auto Repair Service

Posted by D on April 16, 2018 at 1:15 AM


Things you should do when owning a JEEP

#1 – Find a good auto mechanic.

Jeeps are dependable,  they are. It’s just that having work done on this type of rig requires considerable knowledge and expertise — particularly for older, manual models.

Plus, as the owner of a sport vehicle, I can assure you that regular maintenance and upkeep are now part of your future

#2 – Eliminate the death wobble.

Although the attention-grabbing name (death wobble) may be a little overly dramatic, any Jeep — and, really any 4×4 — is likely to wobble at certain speeds, thereby causing a potentially dangerous situation in terms of rollover potential.

This wobbling, which occurs because of vibration in the front wheels, typically is the result of an overloaded front suspension system.  There are lot of special parts and add-ons when it comes to Jeeps. These components — such as lift kits or big tires — can easily throw off alignment.   It’s important to make sure that any stock parts are bolted down correctly and not interfering with the streamlining of your system.

#3 – Learn the Jeep wave.

As a Jeep owner, you’re part of a special club.

People who drive Jeeps consider themselves a unique band of adventurers who enjoy all things about this classic American car.   One of the most basic ways to recognize and show respect and solidarity among drivers on the road is through the Jeep wave (yes, there really is such a thing) — which involves a specific hand gesture to a Jeep driver passing you on the other side of the road.

#4 –Relax and have fun.

 This  may go without saying, but you’d be surprised at how many Jeep owners garage their rigs or treat them as trophy vehicles — thereby missing out on the true fun of owning this type of ride.
Go out and have fun,  there is mud Bogging,  Rock claiming, camping, snow run,  Geocaching , Moab, Jeep Jamboree USA and much more.
