  • Do You Need A New Exhaust?

    Exhaust pipes, catalytic converters, and mufflers are exposed to heat, emissions, and road damage. While your exhaust system is fairly simple and straightforward, these conditions mean it is inherently prone to rust and damage. As a result, this system is often one of the first systems you will have trouble with inside your car.  The exhaust system is complex and completely necessary for your vehicle to run efficiently.

  • Exhaust issue don't have to be exhausting.

    Exhaust issues are extremely common, no matter what type of car, truck, or SUV you drive. At R & D Automotive Specialists, Inc in Lacombe, LA, we can get your exhaust back in shape in no time.  Exhaust issues tend to be neglected, and we get that; there are just other parts of your vehicle that you'd rather focus on. Besides a clogged catalytic converter, there isn’t much risk of damage from a bad exhaust system - it negatively affects your gas mileage, and the sound is annoying but other than that, it’s an issue many people learn to live with. 

  • Is Your Vehicle Too Noisy?

    Do you have a noisy vehicle? If so, you may need a new muffler or exhaust system from our team here at R & D Automotive Specialists, Inc in Lacombe. The purpose of your exhaust system is not only to reduce the noise but also to redirect fumes away from your vehicle. Redirecting these fumes protects passengers in the car from toxins created by burning fuel.

    Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless chemical that can escape from an unsecured exhaust system, and if inhaled can pose very serious health hazards. If you experience an unusually loud sound coming from your vehicle, it is vital to get your exhaust system checked immediately!

  • Protect Your Exhaust from Damage

    The exhaust on your truck is an important series of components, that work together to ensure smooth, reliable operation. At R & D Automotive Specialists, Inc in Lacombe, we also know that exhaust systems are especially susceptible to damage and rust; pipes, mufflers, and other parts are exposed to hazards on the road, and to the environment. This situation, combined with caustic emissions and extreme heat, creates a perfect opportunity for problems to arise.
