What would cause the gasket to just vanish, litterly......Its the gasket that goes from the header flange to the exaust pipe.....lol the Bolts are still there but the gasket is gone....Never seen anything like that before

There are a few things that could cause it actually..... It could have developed a slight leak and then burnt the gasket up, or it could have been loosened up and then burnt and fell out.... or no one put one in there to begin with!

lol, it was falling apart so i put a new one in there about a month ago......i was driving down the road and all a sudden i hear a gradual increase in sound so i pull over and the gasket is litterly gone......and the other exaust gasket looks like its falling apart too(havent replaced that one yet).....But what could make these gaskets fall apart like this?
