exhaust on a vehicle

Exhaust issues are extremely common, no matter what type of car, truck, or SUV you drive. At Zylstra Automotive & Diesel in Visalia, CA, 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. 

Oil gunked up on an engine.

We see this with our fleet customers, our regular Visalia car pool drivers and our diesel truck drivers so it isn't just one type of driver that ends up with a nightmare on their hands costing thousands of dollars to repair, asking about the costs of a JASPER replacement engine!  The fact is your driving habits and maintenance habits can easily avoid this issue!  6 EASY STEPS - Service, Tires, Don't Ignore Service Engine Lights, Keep it Clean & Stop Driving Crazy!

Excellent, efficient, helpful, and friendly, are among the terms I use when I recommend Zylstra to others. We have had our cars taken care of by Zylstra’s for perhaps twenty years. We stay with Zylstra because we always receive high-quality work done quickly at a fair price. The staff always keep me fully informed about what work my car needs and my repair options and the cost of each option. They have always been honest and fair.

We were driving our van south towards Joshua tree National Park when my cruise control and Speedometer stopped working and the transmission was shifting hard. Of course it was New Years Eve and a weekend. But thankfully we were in Kingsburg and there was a RV park right there. So we stayed there over the weekend and got it to Zylstra on Monday after stopping at two other places who could not fix it. First they figured it was the speed sensor because it was broken. So they got a new one and test drove it. That did not fix the problem and they need to dig deeper. So they removed the cover to the rear end and it was out of oil and all the parts were either broken or fused together. They were able to get a whole new Jasper rear end in just a couple days. They knew we were on the road and time off was getting close to over so the mechanic came in on his day off and finished it up on Saturday and drove it around for a while and everything worked. Then on Sunday the owner's wife, sorry can’t remember her name came in first thing in the morning so we could pick it up. They did a great job. Thank you, Tim & Jamie
