Your vehicle’s exhaust system is more than just your muffler and tailpipe.
Your car or truck’s exhaust system may include all or most of the following parts as well as pipes that connect to them:
- exhaust manifold(s)
- exhaust pipes
- catalytic converter(s),
- oxygen sensors*
- AIR (Air Injection Reaction) system*
- EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) system*
*part of the exhaust and emission control systems.
Why does your car not pass the emissions test?
Damage or holes in any of these exhaust parts can usually be attributed to a leaky hole or a malfunctioning electrical component. This is especially true if you live in Norton, Wadsworth or Barberton where salt is used on the roads and can corrode your exhaust. This can result in your vehicle not passing the Ohio E-Check. These parts can usually be easily repaired or replaced. Depending on the the warranty of your car or truck, exhaust system repair may be covered.
