Exhaust gaskets seal the gap between the metal pipes that make up an exhaust system. While many connections, such as those between a muffler and pipe, are welded, the connections between pipes are usually secured by bolts. This requires the use of a gasket to ensure a tight seal.
Whenever servicing the exhaust system, especially when replacing entire pipes, new gaskets should be installed to be sure the system is sealed. Occasionally gaskets may wear down or rupture on their own, allowing exhaust gasses to prematurely escape the system. In these instances the gasket should be replaced as soon as possible.
Replacing an exhaust gasket will require disassembling the connection where it is located.
