As you vehicle ages, the exhaust system will deteriorate for one reason or the other causing a need for parts or all of it to be replaced or maintained.
In the past, the most common failure used to be the muffler or the tail pipe. Well, as luck would have it with the changes in technology, these two items are still an issue, but there are much more items that can fail from time to time. Exhaust systems were much more simple in years past consisting of just pipes, flanges, gaskets, hangers, insulators, mufflers and resonators. Recently, we have seen other items like Catalytic converters, flex joints, oxygen sensors, temperature sensors, factory designer or stainless steel tips. Some exhaust systems actually incorporate the converters into the engines exhaust manifolds making this a popular part to install as well. It seems that nothing is ever as easy is it used to be.
Installing these items can be very time consuming if a person does not have a way of getting the car in the air to work on a have the specialty tools required to do the work. Add damage, old age, rust and corrosion tot he mix and a 10 minute job turns into an all day job. It's not a simple as it used to be, but then what is?
