IIf the exhaust system is damaged, quality operation of the vehicle is not possible. The exhaust system is responsible for the normal removal of soot and carbon monoxide from the engine and discharges them to the atmosphere through the purification systems. This system also includes silencing modules for engine operating noise. The most common cause of damage to this system is corrosion damage. Exhaust components are also replaced in the event of accidents and mechanical damage to the modules.
Why do exhaust system components break down?
The most common cause of failure is natural wear and tear. On quality vehicles, all elements of the muffler and exhaust system last at least 150,000 km or 10 years. But these conditions can be corrected by severe running conditions, storing a car in a garage that is not properly ventilated. The exhaust system also has several complicated damages related to the gas cleaning mechanism.
The most costly and often problematic elements are the following:
Corrosion easily damages pipes and other system parts. Manufacturers often skimp on rust protection and tend to use thin metal. This leads to rapid failure of the muffler pipes and additional costs for the owner.
How do you choose the right components for an exhaust system?
You should choose according to VIN, preferably with original accessories. However, the cost of these parts is very high, so non-original parts can also be a good buy. Choose products from reputable manufacturers, read reviews of the brand and its products.
