Many wear factors can require exhaust replacement. Your exhaust system and connected muffler promote a complete combustion which provides fewer by-products; they reintroduce excessive hydrocarbons back into the engine for combustion, and provide additional area for oxidation or combustion to occur. Some of the common wear defects that require vehicle exhaust replacement include pipes leaking, a corrosion hole, missing components, cracked or broken mounting brackets, punctures, rattling or knocking noise from the muffler, open or split seams that cause exhaust to leak, leaking flexible couplers, and a plugged converter. Vehicle manufacturers are required to meet increasingly stringent pollution control standards. Vehicle emissions testing are designed to identify vehicle's needing repairs in an effort to reduce emissions below the applicable pollution control standards.
