On commute to work this morning on the highway, sudden change in exhaust note followed closely by sounds of pipes bumping and dragging. Pulled over and found pipe had broken clean off at the split (see below). Used a spare fan belt to hold it up to finish the drive.
What's common practice here? Weld back together if solid enough? Rework it all? It'll have to be done by a shop, no welding ability here. Bummer. At least now I "think" I know where my fumes were coming from.
Hope I didn't cause this last night when I changed motor mounts, maybe jacking the motor up stressed the pipe? I'd think there would be enough play to absorb that, but, maybe not. Oh well. It was loud before, it's REAL LOUD now. (and not in a good way).
