Mufflers & Exhaust Systems
Most people think their car’s exhaust system is designed only to reduce noise. But did you know that is also reduces harmful emissions from entering the atmosphere? A properly functioning muffler and exhaust system sounds better and is better for you, your car, and the environment. At Garry’s, we take pride in providing high-quality mufflers, pipes, and other exhaust components.

Q: My car is older and seems to be getting noisier. How do I know if my muffler is going bad?
A: Your car’s exhaust system is pretty complex. Cracks or holes in manifolds, gaskets or pipes, or even the muffler itself could be causing the noise. To find out for sure, stop in and see us.
Q: How do mufflers actually work? Are they made of special soundproof material?
A: Your exhaust system – and the muffler in particular – is very sophisticated. If you were to cut it open, you would see a bundle of metal tubes with holes in them. These simple-looking tubes work together to force sound waves to hit one another in very precise ways, canceling the sound in the process. With all this hidden engineering, it’s no wonder mufflers can’t be a one-size-fits-all replacement part.
Q: Besides excess noise and rough idling, what are some other things I need to watch out for with my car’s exhaust system?
A: Excessive rust or broken rubber hangers can cause mufflers, pipes, and other parts of the exhaust system to hang extremely low or break, and that can be hazardous, especially to folks driving behind you. We should have your exhaust system professionally inspected at least once a year to check for these and other unseen issues.
