cars in city with lots of exhaust

Do you have a noisy vehicle? If so, you may need a new muffler or exhaust system from our team here at By The Book Diesel & Auto Repair in Albuquerque. The purpose of your exhaust system is not only to reduce the noise but also to redirect fumes away from your vehicle. Redirecting these fumes protects passengers in the car from toxins created by burning fuel.

Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless chemical that can escape from an unsecured exhaust system, and if inhaled can pose very serious health hazards. If you experience an unusually loud sound coming from your vehicle, it is vital to get your exhaust system checked immediately!
