Question Asked: 

I took my car to a muffler shop and was told the exhaust leak was in an EGR tube at the accordion part. I called Lexus parts and they said there is a short tube and a longer tube. At this point I do not know which one is the problem. Can you describe the replacement of both? Lexus wants around $200 each for the tubes and $14 for 1 of 2 gaskets needed for each tube. I found online parts stores selling the tubes for around $115-$123 each and gaskets for $2-$3 each. I also heard that the tubes might be repairable (via brazing or cutting out bad part of tube and somehow reconnecting? Can you expand on this as well? Thanks, Rich
