The exhaust on your truck is an important series of components, that work together to insure smooth, reliable operation. At Ray & Roy's Repair, Inc. in Spokane, WA, 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.

All that air passes through a filter that catches the dust and dirt. Eventually, the filter gets completely full, and because the filter can only hold so much, dirt starts getting through. At Ray & Roy's Repair, Inc. in Spokane, we ensure you get the best air quality in your vehicle and explain the process of where this dirty air is going to our area drivers.
