Toyota Exhaust Flange Gasket

This is the gasket that seals between the exhaust manifold and the header pipe. Some people view exhaust system leaks mainly as an aesthetic issue; they simply don’t like driving with a noisy exhaust system.

It can pose a health risk if the exhaust leak is getting into the car. This is especially likely during periods of prolonged idling in slow traffic. (Incidentally, you are also breathing exhaust from the cars around you if you have your heater/air conditioner intake set to fresh air.)

If the exhaust leak is sufficient, it can cause DEQ to fail your car due to their getting a diluted exhaust sample.
