Exhaust Leaks

Well I have been hearing a rattling from under my car for the past few weeks, also the exhaust fumes have been smelling worse than normal. I have cat deletes, so I am use to the normal odor that is given off. I looked under my car today, but couldn't find a source, but did notice three of my clamps are leaking. I tried adjusting them, but to no avail, made one worse to the point you can hear it while driving. Any tips on fixing these leaks?

Dang, if mine did that I'd have a whole new exhaust system...
What do you think about wrapping the leaks and then new clamps? That's an cheap option if your budget is tight right now....

I'm probably going to get some kind of wrap or I heard furnace cement works well. Haha.

They sell an exhaust sealant at any regular autopart store just have to let it sit for a day to let it harden

Those sealants are just band aids that mask the problem. Fix it right by buying new clamps. They can be found for cheap online. Just make sure you don't over tighten them and distort the clamps.

if pipe connections are still round just replace the clamps and don't over tighten them.don't use autozone advance or orilley junk.buy good clamps from a muffler shop. I like the full circle like chysler uses,you can't distort them

I guess you didn't even attempt to read my post, like most of your other posts. I know where the leaks are.


Just an update. I have fixed them all.

So what method did you end up using to fix them all?

I've noticed I have a small leak on the drivers side where my x-pipe connects and the clamps are tight as can be.

Exhaust Leaks

Where the h pipe meets the OTA pipes I just bought wider clamps on Amazon. You could also double clamp them. For the spots where the h pipe meets the cat delete I used that furnace cement then clamped over the cement. I will recheck those soon; to see how the cement is holding up.
