Exhaust & Muffler Repair in Mission Grove, CA

Exhaust Repair

A muffler is a vital automotive component shaped like a cylinder and found on vehicles powered by combustion engines. Vehicles are a lot more sophisticated today and their mufflers play a vital role in what they sound like. 

Mufflers come in various styles, with the primary purpose of reducing noise from the exhaust system. In other words, mufflers “muffle” the engine’s sound by reducing vibrations and preventing toxic fumes from entering the vehicle. They accomplish this by redirecting airflow and releasing poisonous gasses through exhaust made from noise-reducing parts.

If you want to upgrade your vehicle’s exhaust or muffler system, then it is vital to schedule your visit to a certified Muffler Shop in Mission Grove like Protrans. 

Why is Muffler Repair necessary? 

A muffler repair is essential in the following ways:

  • A malfunctioning exhaust system can be enough to cause a trouble code to be generated in the engine’s computer, illuminating the check engine light on the dashboard and reducing fuel economy and efficiency.
  • A faulty muffler can cause your vehicle to fail an emissions test and safety checks.
  • The engine is designed for a certain amount of back pressure or resistance to exhaust flow. A failed muffler and low back pressure can result in a burned exhaust valve or other problems.

Warning Indicators your muffler needs repair or replacement

When your vehicle’s muffler system experiences technical glitches, it indicates numerous things. Here are some warning indicators your muffler needs repair or replacement:

Sudden excessive noise 

When you start hearing loud or strange noises, this is a sign that your muffler needs to be repaired. Because one of the muffler’s functions is to reduce the noise produced by your vehicle’s exhaust system, sudden loud or peculiar noises indicate an underlying problem. If your engine makes loud noises, it’s critical to schedule a repair before the situation worsens.

The vehicle’s temperature is running hot.

Allow the vehicle to run for a few minutes before checking the temperature to see if it is abnormally high. In some cases, a faulty muffler can cause a vehicle to overheat, requiring urgent help.

Clogged

Regularly driving under rough road conditions can shake internal parts loose, clogging the muffler.

Bad fume smell

It could be your muffler if you recognize a lot of exhaust smoke coming from your tailpipe or smell fumes while driving. Exhaust fumes have a variety of burnt odors, so if you notice any strange odors, have your muffler checked and repaired. 

Physical symptoms such as an irritated throat, sinuses, and eyes may occur depending on how long you are in the car. As a result, having it checked as soon as possible is critical because it can pose a severe health risk.

Our Customer Reviews

These guys are the real deal. From the moment I called, the lady at the front desk was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Never left me waiting or wondering. They rebuilt my transmission and gave me my truck back feeling like new. Jeff was in constant communication with me the entire time, great guy. Great techs and Honest company. Thanks Protrans!

Edward Pulido Sep 9, 2023

Great auto shop! Very communicative and reasonable prices.

Brooke Rose Sep 9, 2023

Service was friendly, clear, and respectful. Went in for a coolant leak and failing coolant fans. They charged 130$ to find the leak and about 1000$ to replace the fans and the water pump. They made some extra maintenance suggestions but were very clear on what was essential to fix the leak, and what was only a suggestion. Not pushy at all. The prices they told me ahead of time matched up with what they actually billed me for. They had the problem diagnosed the same day I took the car in and had it repaired by the next day. I had to use a payment plan for the first time to cover part of the cost. They made it easy and quick to get a good loan. It's been a week since I went in and the car hasn't had any problems since. Car was a chevy sonic.

Christian Wolird Sep 9, 2023

LaVester Sturges Aug 8, 2023

I took my SUV VW Toureg to the dealer to have my brakes done. They did an estimate on the work I needed done with parts and told me it would be over $1000 dollars to get it done for the front brakes only. So, I called around and remembered going to Protrans a few years ago and how great their services were. I called them up they gave me a free estimate, after work was done they changed me half of what the dealer was going to charge me. I strongly recommend Protrans for any and all of repairs or services you need for your vehicle.

Jeff Stapleton Jan 1, 2021

I took the chance to just drop in without an appointment early in the morning because I needed some expertise on a problem.

I brought my 2012 Honda Civic Natural Gas Vehicle to Protrans b/c it couldn't be serviced at the Dealer. Protrans was able to define the issue(s); work thru them & get my vehicle back on the road. No issues for over 6 months now. The Team is polite, very knowledgable, but most importantly professional. I highly recommend Protrans for anyone that needs service for their vehicle.

Protrans Automotive & Transmission the personnel at your service station are Honest and informative; providing the utmost work on my GMC Terrain. The car was checked out with an engine analyzer prior to visit. Your mechanics did a diagnostic check and came up with the same code. So, I was relieved the service station was not going to rip me of.. or take advantage of a senior citizen. Timely, informative and status of recommended work was provided. Updates discussed before their professional work continued. When I picked up my vehicle, such a difference!! It was like I received a brand new car. The Terrain runs so smoothly. The company they they run shows talent and professionalism in their automotive Skills!! Thanks, Jackie

Nice people and quality service! I strongly recommend this place. After trying multiple places, they managed to fix the transmission on my truck for a great price.

Eduardo Garcia Apr 4, 2023

Twice now I've had the pleasure of having my 2007 Dodge Ram serviced with this fantastic business. The most recent was last week prior to that about 5 years ago. The first time was the alternator and battery replacement with a long drive home to follow. A little scary but everything worked out just fine. Visiting family once again last week when my check engine light illuminated.. yikes! Not to worry! From the first phone call with Corey to schedule an appointment to working with Jeff and Michael to get the issue resolved before returning home to Arizona! Communication was excellent! They even looked into getting my side view mirror replaced however I was unable to stick around for them to complete it. Darn it! All the same I highly highly recommend ProTrans!!! Their pricing is reasonable along with the reliable service. Best I've ever experienced. Give them a try they will not let you down! God bless

Juanita Bigelow Feb 2, 2023

This was my first time visit at Protrans Automotive, I did not know what to expect and was worried about how bad my car was and what it would cost me. Jeff greeted me and was very professional and welcoming. While my car was being repaired, I made arrangements to rent a car at a rental place, which was about 1/2 mile away. I was offered a ride to the car rental place by Protrans, which was really nice and accommodating since the weather was very frigid that morning. That afternoon, Jeff called me and advised my car was ready and it was not nearly as bad as I had anticipated. I was pleased with their hospitality and professionalism. I am happy with my car and it is running great!!! Thank you for your great service.

Stella Sayers Jan 1, 2023

Where do i start.. Wednesday afternoon 3pm before Thanksgiving on way home to Phoenix, car goes into limp mode, got referred to Protrans. Called them they agreed to take a look. Diagnosed, parts ordered and Throttle Body replaced and road tested. So very excited to know that there are still Honest shops out there that actually care about their clients. Highly recommend Protrans.

Jerry Griffus Nov 11, 2022

Very friendly! They checked our car and gave us professional recommendations for free! Will surely go back to them when next oil change needed.

Yuan-Lu Chen Nov 11, 2022

Went in for transmission repair, after diagnosing the problem they told me I didn't need a full rebuild saving me well over $1,000.00. They found some safety issues I wasn't aware of and I had them take care of all of them. The truck is running great! Thank you Protrans.
