The Best Grand Rapids Exhaust System & Muffler Repair Services
At Cascade Automotive 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
Come to Cascade Automotive Service and keep your exhaust system running smoothly. At Cascade Automotive Service 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 Cascade Automotive Service today at 6751 Old 28th St.
- 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 Cascade Automotive Service at 6751 Old 28th St and we will diagnose the problem right away.
- O2 Sensor Replacement: Ask any mechanic at Cascade Automotive 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 Cascade Automotive 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 Cascade Automotive 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 Cascade Automotive 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.

Since moving to the Grand Rapids area I went from repair shop to repair shop looking for a place that did great work and had fair prices. Went a decade before finding Cascade Automotive and now that is where I take my vehicles. They accurately diagnose the issues, fix things right, all at the reasonable price. I trust Cascade Automotive.

Jeff, thank you for taking care of our entire family of cars. And thank you for putting on new wipers when you heard we would be driving into tropical storm remnants. You treated us like family. Amazing service!
I just relocated to the GR area and started having transmission problems... and I'm so relieved to have found this place. Jeff is an honest man! I found my new local mechanic shop.
I have never been to an auto-repair shop that truly acts as though they care about their customers the way that Jeff and his family does. Honestly, this is the most honorable, honest, and truly caring automotive repair shop that I have ever been to. Thank you.
We have been going here for a couple years now and won't go anywhere else! Very trustworthy, hardworking, and good people!
Good to know a mechanic you can trust. These guys are thorough and honest. My car was finished in less time than I was quoted and they charged me accordingly.
When I worked on the east side of Metro GR I used Cascade Auto for my personal cars and my work vehicles. Due to the downturn in the economy I wound up in a situation where I really had to start taking care of things myself. So for the past 10's I've been doing my own repairs. Just recently I had a problem that was outside of anything a repair manual or the internet could tell me. I needed help and my first thought was to take it to Cascade Auto. I'm happy to say they found the problem!!! It was something that should have never happened and could have been a defect going back to when the motor was built in the factory. The repair tech didn't give up and despite everyone and everything online telling him that couldn't be the problem he figured it out. Very happy that I reconnected with Jeff and his team.
