Rust and Corrosion: Rust is a common cause of your exhaust system's malfunction. Road damage can cause small holes to develop under normal driving conditions as well.
Catalytic Converter: A catalytic converter is used to convert hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, and nitrogenoxide into harmless compounds. It is necessary to make sure it is operating correctly.
Another common problem is oxidization of the pipes, also known as rust. This corrosion is caused by moisture reacting with the iron in the steel, forming iron oxide. The moisture is a byproduct of combustion and also comes from rain. The earlier you notice rust, the easier it is to repair.
