The Best Saint Louis Exhaust System & Muffler Repair Services
At Precision Import Auto Service 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

At Precision Import Auto Service we know you count on your exhaust system and muffler to reduce noise and normalize your engine's back-pressure.

Come by Precision Import Auto Service today at 5050 Griffin Rd.
- 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 Precision Import Auto Service at 5050 Griffin Rd and we will diagnose the problem right away.
- O2 Sensor Replacement: Ask any mechanic at Precision Import Auto Service 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 Precision Import Auto Service 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 Precision Import Auto Service 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 Precision Import Auto Service 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.
What People Say About Us
Could not be more pleased with the service here. These guys are very thorough. They pay attention to what you ask for, and take the time to communicate clearly what they find, and what they suggest. Also, I love the fact that they are honest about what they know for sure, and what they can't know for sure without further investigation (taking things apart). Professional, knowledgeable, and honest.
We have found Fritz, Steven and Alex friendly, and helpful in keeping our 1996 Honda on the road. They are competent and efficient and prices are reasonable. They make the extra effort in finding the parts needed, that others may not have in stock. When we have to leave the car for the day, it is nice we can borrow their loaner car. the staff care for our car, as if it was their car. We do not trust our car with anyone else, but Precision Import.
We brought our Acura in recently for its 80K mile check. As usual our car was worked on immediately, and within an hour, the service was completed and we were on our way. We have been taking our Honda's and Acura's to Precision Import for 20+ years because we appreciate their efficient, expert, and honest service. They will tell you what work needs to be done now and what may be coming up but not needed immediately. They never try to push unnecessary service items as many dealers are prone to do. We highly recommend them.
I've gone to these guys 3 times and they treated me right. Very transparent about the work that they are doing.
I've been using the shop for years and will continue to do so until Fritz hangs it up. Auto repair shops in general have a bad reputation for ripping off customers but I have no hesitation in handing my keys over and tell them to fix whatever they need to. Most recently I was contacted after the repair to make sure everything was okay. I don't get this treatment from my doctor. My folks now take their cars here too and are very happy as well.
Great service at reasonable prices.
I highly, highly recommend Precision Import Auto Service! Fritz and the team are very knowledgeable and helpful. They give thorough explanation of problems and solutions for someone less mechanically inclined as myself. They do not try to oversell you on more work than you actually need done. After having too many bad experiences at the numerous chain automotive repair shop which are often just trying to make an extra buck at your expense, I've realized Precision Import Auto Service is the place for me. I unequivocally recommend!
I discovered Fritz and his mechanic Alex, 12 years ago and they have kept the 1996 Honda going and going like the Energizer Bunny. We have another car they are servicing. I have found a trustworthy man to care for the car. They keep a log of services completed on the car and remind me when a service is coming up, which I find very helpful. Fritz and Alex care about our car as if it was their car. They tell you about things they may find wrong on the car, as they are working, so you can fix it and be safe. I don't take the car anywhere else, but Precision!
I have the utmost confidence in Fritz & Alex! They are skilled & trustworthy! I know they will do whatever needs to be done at a reasonable rate. I will never go back 2 a dealer again!
Very thorough, friendly and informative. Will definitely go back when/if we need service on our Acura again.
