AYRES Muffler Brake and Alignment Replaces Catalytic Converters

Catalytic-Converter-AYRES-Muffler-Alignment-REPAIR

This rusty pipe is the inside and outside of a catalytic converter. If you look closely at the inside you will see it consists of many small little holes, most of which are clogged with soot. The purpose of the converter is to burn off excess gas the engine does not, helping to keep emission levels down.

Catalytic converters are mandatory on all cars and trucks by law in Washoe County.

Above is a good comparison of what a new catalytic converter looks like and the difference it will make on your car and passing smog.

Muffler Replacement

muffler-replacement-ayres-muffler-brake-alignment

Here is an example of a muffler repair at Ayres Muffler Brake and Alignment. This is a 2016 Subaru Crosstrek. The owner was unfortunately rear-ended causing extensive damage to the rear of the vehicle. In addition to replacing the muffler, Ayres fabricated custom piping for the muffler to properly fit in place.

How does Ayres fabricate custom piping?

Ayres Muffler Brake and Alignment has a special machine called an Exhaust Pipe Bender. This machine allows us to bend the pipe to whatever angle or direction is needed to ensure the best fit and air movement for a customer’s car.

In addition to repair, Ayres offers multiple muffler options to upgrade your vehicle. We can change the look, design and sound of your muffler. Is it too loud or too quiet for your liking?

Ayres Muffler Brake and Alignment can fix that!
