Exhaust Down Pipe
The exhaust down pipe, also known as the header pipe, is the pipe component that is connected between the exhaust manifolds of the engine and the exhaust system. The exhaust manifolds are responsible for collecting exhaust from your vehicle’s engine which are then transported through the exhaust down pipe to the rest of the exhaust system. The exhaust down pipe contains a flexible connection to allow for movement, which can often be the source of exhaust down pipe issues.
Signs of a bad exhaust down pipe
- Exhaust leak
- Squeaking noise while idling (from flexible connection)
