Hmm. . . design . . its kind of wierd tho. . . did it come like that brand new? anyway it really doesnt matter. . you see alot of dual mufflers on cars too. .maybe they just wanted the exaust pipes to be smaller. .
instead of installing a huge single exaust they prefered a sleeker tri-exaust. . . doesnt really matter. 8) you know how the japanese are. . hehehehelove to be pioneers

If your previous turbo had leaked oil into the exhaust system there would still be oil residue left in the system. (1) The catalytic converter/converters would need to be replaced if you have one plus any O2 sensors. (2) If your muffler/mufflers are a glass packed type, replace it with a new one. If muffler is a chamber type you can clean it with a solvent or replace your call. The muffler/mufflers are were most of the oil will be pooling. (3) Clean as much of the exhaust as you can with the solvent that you used to flush the mufflers with.
its important to have the right amount of backprettiar in your exhaust, so if going from 2 mufflers and 2 pipes to a single one would need to enlarge the size of the pipe to compansate. or it wont breath right and end up gutless.
Unless you have modified the engine in your new car and thereby voided the warranties, the existing exhaust system is adequately sized. If you want louder mufflers you should be able to replace those safely without endangering your warranty coverage, but read the fine print in your 3/36 bumper to bumper and 5/50 power-train warranties. Anything behind the catalytic converters is generally fair game (cat-back conversion) but again read your warranties. I have about 17 months left on the power-train warrantee on my 2010 Challenger before I will even think about any modifications.
The ECU doesn't usually detect muffler issues since they are located beyond the emissions portion (mufflers are essentially for noise not emissions) Mufflers usually have small holes located on the lowest rear-most part to allow condensation to escape. If the holes are big enough for a pencil to fit in, yes you have rusty mufflers. They aren't the problem most likely, but that rust indicates age and poor condition of the entire emissions system. Most issues are in the form of leaks (vaccum or EGR) or sensors O2, MAP or MAF, or you could have a clogged catalytic converter all can be checked by a reputable mechanic if you are overwhelmed.
why is there 3 converters there should be one and then two mufflers. the one should hold back the compression and the mufflers are there to quite the vehicle check the book on the exhaust im fairly sure its not supposed to have 3 converters try dropping the exhaust and starting it ,then rev it up and see if it bogges down while you have it reved if not then theres the problem and dont be alarmed if it dies once you release the gas pedal that happens when theres not enough compression and sense you would have dropped the exhaust for the test that would be normal. if all goes well and that is the problem just get a new exhuast system with 1 converter and 2 mufflers. if all this didnt work try a new fuel pump and inline filter hope i helped you.
We have that similar problem, thick black exhaust and too much revving.
Replace everything, tuned it up, but still that problem is there. Usually that was the problem of most Diesel Pajeros. Untill, we clean up the exhaust pipe and mufflers. Cleaning by means of using liquid sosa, detergent soap, and kerosene gas. Because diesel is a rich carbon emission fuel( oil ), mostly the carbon accumulated in the exhaust system and replacing the whole system is costly.
Just pull down the exhaust system, put the cleaning chemicals that I said, pour it in the exhaust pipe, block the end of the exhaust and pour water untill it fills up.Soaked it for a day and release it afterwards. You will see all the carbons that accumulated, fill it up again with fresh water so that your cleaning it up, untill no more carbon comes out!
Thats about it to get rid of that problem, either you replace the mufflers and buy a new ones or do this.
Thanks for asking FixYa!
autoanything.com lists mufflers for this car also air intake filters and many other items, look at the magizine racks for mags covering these cars also a good muffler shop can build an exhaust system to suit usually. type in 2006 galant in your search engine(google) and see what comes up! good luckon drifting the *** **** and keep the shiny side up -- best car i ever had was a mitsubishi montero sport
i have a 1990 toyota camry, it is overheated very fast, its catalytic converter is clogged and i drilled a few holes in it to let some of that stuff out to let it generate right, but it is not wanting to stay crankedand when the engine gets to a certain temperature, the sound of the engine changes and if you hit the gas all it does is shake and you hear a pinging sound in the engine and when you cut it off it wont crank again until it cools all the way back down
