Exhaust system life varies widely according to driving habits and environmental conditions. If short-distance driving predominates, the moisture and condensation in the system will not fully dry out. This will lead to early corrosion damage and more frequent replacement.
Check for restrictions due to dents or kinks. Check for weakness or perforation due to rust. Check that exhaust system fasteners are tight. Check to see that all support bands are in place and properly supporting the system. Exhaust system replacement is covered in 260 Exhaust System.
