Q: Car exhaust leak

asked by on

I have an exhaust leak.

Since the vehicle is over ten years old, your exhaust system may be having problems with the gaskets or donut seals at the exhaust manifold or at the catalyst. My recommendation would be to have a mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, come by and inspect the entire exhaust system to locate the leaks and make the necessary repairs.
