The Best San Antonio Exhaust System & Muffler Repair Services
At Anderson Garage 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 Anderson Garage and keep your exhaust system running smoothly. At Anderson Garage 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 Anderson Garage today at 7560 Bandera 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 Anderson Garage at 7560 Bandera Rd and we will diagnose the problem right away.
- O2 Sensor Replacement: Ask any mechanic at Anderson Garage 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 Anderson Garage 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 Anderson Garage 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 Anderson Garage 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.

Carlos R. did a great job in caring for my car and was very professional. It is obvious he cares about his customers and is very knowledgeable. This was my first time at Anderson and his work earned my trust and earned Anderson Garage
my business for future vehicle work.
If you don't understand what your car is trying to tell you, bring it to theses folks. They talk "car".
Carlos was AWESOME. He drove my Mercedes C300 and knew right away what my issue was after dealing with the same issue from several other mechanic shops for almost a year. Very honest, quick and thorough. You guys gained a new customer for life. Thank you very very much Carlos!
So hard to find an honest, trustworthy garage, but Anderson Garage is the best! I've moved across town and tried some closer places, but I am now coming back to Anderson Garage because the other places just don't compare. Highly recommend!
Fast and friendly service. Were able to figure out the problem with my truck misfiring and fix it within a day. Will definitely use them again.
Sean and his team have been my preferred mechanic for almost 20 years. They are honest and dependable and do it right the first time. I highly recommend Anderson Garage!
Honest estimates. Quick service.
I recently found this place, as they are one of the very few shops left that will work on modified Hummer H2s. They did a very excellent job on the work. When I came in to pay, the cost was less than what was quoted. I got a detailed reason as to why, and I ended up leaving happy. Would recommend this shop to anyone!
This is my mechanic of choice in San Antonio. Multiple times when Toyota and GMC dealers tried to overcharge me, this place got my truck and SUV fixed right for less.
Since moving to SA in 2009, we thought we would never find a reliable auto shop, like we had in LA. But thank God we found them, and they have been a blessing to our cars and to our pocket. Thanks Anderson Garage and Sean.
I've been using Anderson for over 8 years and with various vehicles (Honda Civic, F-150, Chevy Uplander). They have always done an excellent job and warrantied their work. They are honest and thorough to a fault and have always been straightforward regarding whether or not work should be done. I would recommend Anderson's to anyone that wants a straight deal on any minor or major auto repair. Great job guys!!!
