Exhaust, Clayton, NC

The Best Clayton Exhaust System & Muffler Repair Services

At Clayton Lube & Tune 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 Clayton Lube & Tune and keep your exhaust system running smoothly. At Clayton Lube & Tune 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 Clayton Lube & Tune today at 9641 US-70 BUS.

  • 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 Clayton Lube & Tune at 9641 US-70 BUS and we will diagnose the problem right away.
  • O2 Sensor Replacement: Ask any mechanic at Clayton Lube & Tune 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 Clayton Lube & Tune 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 Clayton Lube & Tune 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 Clayton Lube & Tune 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.

Clayton Lube & Tune is AWESOME! The team is friendly, very knowledgeable & professional. I have been looking for a place in Clayton for years to service my GMC & I Hyundai vehicles and this place is the best in town. They have excellent technology for scheduling, repair options and cost review but also provide excellent staff to answer my questions in a timely & accurate manner on the phone & in the office. I was able to drop my car off 1 day prior to my service appointment & they were able to turn it around the same day. Huge surprise & greatly appreciated. The team always offers local rides and option of a loaner vehicle to accommodate to my busy schedule and general convenience. I have had oil changes, brake and AC work as well as general inspections with the work being professional, done properly & at a fair price. This is my go to auto shop & I will always recommend to anyone I talk with. A GREAT customer service experience exceeding my expectations! Thank You!!!!

Customer Service was wonderful, did not have to wait very long to get my car inspected and they also replaced a fuse for me. I will definitely go back there for my next service.

Went in 3 months ago for brakes, a/c and an oil change. Everything is working great and I really appreciate the guys. They went above and beyond for replacing my air filters and my window button. The staff were great as well as the quality of work. Thanks again.

Everyone at Clayton Lube & Tune is extremely professional and prompt! I was in and out much faster if I went some place else! Thanks for great service!

These people went above and beyond my expectations. I was there for a very simple service, an inspection; the fact that every single member of the staff stopped in to speak to me was enormously impressive. I can't tell you the last time that that has happened prior to visiting Clayton Tune and Lube. Prior to this I had a mechanic with whom I was okay. Moving forward, this is my garage of choice.

Great customer service! These guys are the best. They helped me figure out what maintenance I needed and got me an appointment right away. Upfront pricing quote made it easy to choose the services I wanted.

These guys were great! We had to get an inspection on my daughters car and they got us right in. She had a few things that failed the inspection process but they quickly gave us quotes for the repairs that were truly very well priced and they offered to get it done for her ASAP. First time here but I will make sure I and my friends/family check them out!

My van broke down on the side of 70 and was unsure of where to bring it for repair. Spoke with someone who quickly and he said to have it towed to the shop. Service was excellent, the staff was great and even received a follow up text to ensure my van is running great. Customer service on point. Thanks Clayton Lube and Tune team!!

We have always received great service here, with reasonable prices. We had an issue after having our brake pads changed, problem with the part, not the service. They fixed it without any problems and followed up to make sure everything was 100% perfect. I would recommend them!

I cannot say enough good things about Clayton Lube & Tube!!! My husband and I are new to the area and I needed an oil change and tire rotation done on my car. I was very impressed by all the wonderful reviews that this business had!!! Now I know why!!! They are very customer oriented and do the best for the customer and their vehicle. They took the time to explain what maintenance my vehicle might need and a timeline for that. I was very impressed with this business and they now have two new loyal customers!!!
