What the Exhaust System does: An exhaust system not only reduces engine noise, it also keeps harmful fumes away from your vehicle. Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas, which could escape from an unsecured exhaust system. For your protection as well as the protection of your family, it is very important to have your exhaust system examined on a regular basis. Properly functioning exhaust systems not only sound better, they are better for you, your car, and the environment.
Why muffler repair & exhaust service is necessary: Pinpointing signs of corrosion, wear, and damage can prevent splits and punctures in your exhaust system. Many states and counties call for emissions testing to register your vehicle (which Jensen Tire & Auto can do!), and having an emissions service done before your testing can save you time and money in the long run.
When to get your muffler checked out:
- Loud thumps, growls, or bangs

Auto Repair FAQ
What service warranties do you offer?
We at Jensen Tire & Auto are proud to offer one of the best service warranties in the industry. Our minimum warranty for any auto repair is 90 days or 4,000 miles, whichever comes first. Visit our warranties page for more information.
Should I use synthetic oil?
Some manufacturers recommend using synthetic oil in their vehicles. Be sure to check your owner’s manual to determine if is recommended for your vehicle before getting your oil changed.
Why change transmission fluid?
Transmission fluid is an internal lubricant just like engine motor oil. During certain driving conditions and mileage intervals, transmission fluid, because of wear and age, can break down and become contaminated. This may result in costly transmission repairs and possibly the need for replacement. As a general rule the transmission fluid and, in some instances, the transmission filter should be replaced at 25,000-mile intervals. You should always consult your vehicle's Owner's Manual for recommended service intervals before scheduling any transmission services.
When should my belts be changed?
You should begin checking your vehicle's belts at 20,000 miles. Things to look for include cracks, splits, glazing, peeling, greasy buildup, and splitting or missing sections. It you notice any of these conditions you should arrange to have all of your vehicle's belts simultaneously changed out. If a serpentine belt breaks, many other components including your vehicle's alternator, water pump, power steering, etc., will not function, resulting in further damage and costly auto repairs.
