Exhaust

The Best Houston Exhaust System & Muffler Repair Services

At Trans International Transmissions 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 Trans International Transmissions and keep your exhaust system running smoothly. At Trans International Transmissions 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 Trans International Transmissions today at 1108 North Loop.

  • 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 Trans International Transmissions at 1108 North Loop and we will diagnose the problem right away.
  • O2 Sensor Replacement: Ask any mechanic at Trans International Transmissions 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 Trans International Transmissions 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 Trans International Transmissions 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 Trans International Transmissions 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.

Testimonials

  • By far the most genuine and best in the business. Jorge is probably the best mechanic in the Houston area. I had him fix a timing chain gear for me about a year ago. First and foremost he's a trans specialist and was very happy to get my car running for me. I would recommend him HIGHLY over anyone else. He's a very caring and knowledgeable man, and I won't let anyone else touch my car. Thanks Jorge sincerely!

  • I took my Lexus to George based on a recommendation from a friend. From the moment I met George, I could tell he is an honest person. He rebuilt my engine, gave me a fair price and always kept me informed of the status of my repair. I would highly recommend him.

  • I took my car to Trans International Transmission for a transmission problem last December. I always call them if I have a problem in my car, and they always tell me what is the best to do and if they can do it. They repaired a transmission leak in 3 hours without an appointment!

  • I send all my transmission work to Jorge. He's one of the few mechanics I trust and can rely on. Super knowledgeable and gives honest recommendations.

  • Recently took my truck (2002 F150) to a dealer for a new transmission. Called Jorge at Trans International instead, and was able to have the work done for a fraction of the cost. I called a few transmission shops in the area and Jorge offered the best deal, not to mention was very helpful. They do a complete rebuild including the torque converter rather than replacing only what needs to be done. Jorge called me to let me know when their tow driver got the vehicle, when it was in the shop, and when it was going to be ready. Only took two days. Give them a call.

  • This is the only transmission shop that didn't pressure me to rebuild my trans because of 122,000 miles on it. Jorge, that's the guy to talk to, was very imformative and helpful. He walked me through everything that had to be done and kept his word. He fixed my transmision slippage and old problems the last mechanic left behind. I know I got a very good deal with quality work done. Thanks. I highly recommend this trans shop to anyone.
