Exhaust

The Best Princeton Exhaust System & Muffler Repair Services

At Saint's Automotive Service Center 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 Saint's Automotive Service Center and keep your exhaust system running smoothly. At Saint's Automotive Service Center 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 Saint's Automotive Service Center today at 31336 125th St.

  • 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 Saint's Automotive Service Center at 31336 125th St and we will diagnose the problem right away.
  • O2 Sensor Replacement: Ask any mechanic at Saint's Automotive Service Center 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 Saint's Automotive Service Center 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 Saint's Automotive Service Center 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 Saint's Automotive Service Center 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.

  • I really enjoyed my experience at Saints. My Volkswagen had some engine issues and they fixed my problem while also letting me know of some other things to keep my eye on down the road. I had a very positive experience and I'll go back to Saint's whenever something pops up.

  • I've been bringing my Saab in to Dave and Craig at Saint's Automotive for about 4 years now and have always received top notch service, honest work and an overall great experience with them. I highly recommend them to anyone.

  • I called about coming to my home to fix a flat tire. They were "Johnny on the Spot!" Being a widow, it's nice to know there are people who care. Thank you so very much!! I'm so appreciative!

  • Craig has helped me several times, not just at Saint's. He goes above and beyond to make sure you get the right repair. I live and die by my truck and I gladly bring it here for repair and tires. I've never once been mislead and the tires I bought from here a few days ago managed to get my little Chevy 45 miles with a 3000 pound load, no sweat. I have the pictures! I know Craig has personally worked to make sure my truck is in peak condition to handle what I do. Definitely come here. The price is less than the dealership and the crew actually cares and does their job right and well.

  • I've been going to Saint's for over 10+ years, I had an Acura sports car, and currently have an Acura MDX. They have done a wonderful job of maintaining both over the years. Craig does an excellent job working the front desk and giving accurate quotes for the jobs I've had done. Dave the owner, is very knowledgeable, in dealing with some of the issues I have had over the years. One example was when my brake lines rusted out in my sports car (thanks to salt in MN), and another time was when my bluetooth was causing my battery to drain and would not start, after being parked at the airport for a week. These guys do a wonderful job of mainting my behicles, I have even had them give me quotes on working with my Chevrolet Silverado. Just need to have the down time to get the work done.

  • Saint's Automotive helped get my vehicle ready for a long drive to the west coast for a vacation. It was a great relief to know that everything was looked at and fixed so we could enjoy our vacation and lower our changes of breaking down along the way. They truly take pride in their work and their customer service is great!

  • I have been going here for years and have always been treated fairly. I moved to Plymouth and I still drive there any time my car needs anything! Dave is always extremely fair, caring, and very knowledgeable! I've never had any problems with this place and I wouldn't go anywhere else. I highly recommend it!

    reviewicon

  • I just want to say thank you for taking such good care of my car over the past 20 some years. You are probably the most honest and trustworthy auto repair shop in Minnesota. One of my only regrets about moving to Michigan is that you are not moving too.

    I wish you much success and happiness in the years ahead.

  • Saints Auto is a top quality service center. It is not always easy for me to walk into a service shop and feel comfortable, as I don't know much about vehicles. At Saints they put you at ease. They are very friendly and honest. They go above and beyond the call of duty. Recently I had my car serviced, just routine maintenance. Oil change, courtesy inspection. I had a musty smell in my vents, they totally resolved the issue. I feel when I leave there that my car is in top running condition. They are professional yet treat you like a friend. Thank you! Thank you Dave and Jeff!!

  • Dave is the best! If you want an HONEST and fair guy that'll give you the real problem, and tell you what needs to be done right away and what can wait a little, this is where you want to be. I don't feel like I have to check anything out with my "motor head" friends because Dave is always honest with his customers.
