Exhaust

The Best Alexandria Exhaust System & Muffler Repair Services

At Becker Auto Repair 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 Becker Auto Repair and keep your exhaust system running smoothly. At Becker Auto Repair 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 Becker Auto Repair today at 1811 S Nokomis Street.

  • 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 Becker Auto Repair at 1811 S Nokomis Street and we will diagnose the problem right away.
  • O2 Sensor Replacement: Ask any mechanic at Becker Auto Repair 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 Becker Auto Repair 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 Becker Auto Repair 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 Becker Auto Repair 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.

  • We brought our truck here because the check engine light came on and it was not running quite right. These guys did the diagnostics & it turned out to be a misfire due to a worn out ignition component. All they did was replace all of the old and worn out components with new ones and our truck still starts and runs like new even with 254,000 miles. Thanks for all of your help, everything is still working top notch to this day!

  • Thank you so much! Our water pump went out and no one could fit us in to replace it while headed down to Minneapolis. Not only did they make time in their schedule, but also provided us with rides to and from the shop. True sign of awesome client service, added to a job well done at a reasonable price...you have our two thumbs up!!!

  • I would like to say thank you to Becker Auto in Alexandria. We had our oil changed at an area dealership after work tonight and they said our serpentine belt was bad, would be over $250 to replace it, and would take over an hour. We thought we would stop by Becker Auto to see if they could fix it in the morning. It was 5:28 and they close at 5:30. They said let’s do it now. Thirty-five minutes later we were out the door for less than $100. Thank you so much!!
