  • Vibration – Your exhaust can be come rusty, and parts of it can become loose over time, both of which result in vibration when you turn your car, or even when you idle.
  • Leaks – Leaks can occur as thermal expansion wreaks havoc on your gaskets.
  • Performance loss – This all comes together to result in loss of gas mileage among other things.
