Your car's exhaust is very important. As well as removing fumes, it helps to enhance engine performance, control noise levels and boost fuel efficiency. It's made up of a catalytic converter, manifold, silencer, sensors and exhaust pipe. In order to keep functioning effectively, all of these parts have to be in working order.
Luckily, the majority of modern exhausts are made from either stainless steel or chrome and are designed to last for the lifespan of the vehicle.
