The Best Harrisburg Exhaust System & Muffler Repair Services
At Harkins Service Center LLC 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.

- 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 Harkins Service Center LLC at 2910 Ellsworth Street and we will diagnose the problem right away.
- O2 Sensor Replacement: Ask any mechanic at Harkins Service Center LLC 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 Harkins Service Center LLC 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 Harkins Service Center LLC 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 Harkins Service Center LLC 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.

We were far from home when the car unexpectedly experienced cataltic converter problems. Rick and his team made time for us, expertly diagnosed the problem, secured the parts and bent pipe, and got us back on the road later the very same day. Guys, you rocked this repair! If we lived in Harrisburg, there's no question who our auto service techs would be - Harkins Service Center!! Roland from Uniontown
It's comforting to know I have an honest,

Highly recommended! Rick has been working on all my vehicles for years. He is one off the most honest guys that I have ever dealt with. Nice to get work done and trust that it's getting done right!
Being a single women, I truly appreciate the honesty
from Rick and for that reason alone Rick will be my "forever mechanic", not
to mention the quality of his work as well as his promptness. Thank you
Rick, you rock!!!!
I've know Rick & his family for many years now. You will be hard pressed to find a better, more honest mechanic, service person or technician anywhere. I take my family's entire fleet of vehicles to Rick for everything & I would highly recommend you do the same!
Everything was handled very professionally. The diagnosis was accurate and fixed quickly and efficiently. I will definitely be coming back for future car needs!
Rick's prices are always fair and competitive, but more importantly you can always trust his advice and know that he is not just trying to sell you service that you don't need. It doesn't matter how good a mechanic is if you can't trust him. I would recommend Harkins Service Center to anyone!
This is a great shop and whatever problem I have came in with, I left with none (which is hard to find anymore). He keeps you updated on everything, through the whole process of what he did, why he did it, and what you should do to make sure it doesn't happen again.
Over all is a 5 out of 5.
