What should you do if the piping leading to the muffler is rusted off and is making a loud noise?

You have exhaust leak where the pipe rusted through and this makes the loud noise. You can go to a parts store and get a exhaust repair kit to fix the hole. This is only a temporary fix and might not be enough to fix the repair. Otherwise, you have to go to a muffler shop so they can replace the rusted section.

A hole in a muffler is from two causes. It has either rusted through or been damaged by something hitting it.

you could possibly have an exhaust leak, or a resonator/ muffler that is past its life span. check under your car and make sure you aren't missing any piping. I had a similar issue, because my resonator rusted out of the bottom of my car. If you aren't sure on checking it yourself, take it to your mechanic.

Iron oxide (rust) Isn't magnetic. So rusted iron will have less pure iron in it. making it less magnetic.

Exhaust components rust out over time due to weather and the heat from the vehicle. On a 2001 Chevy Cavalier, when the muffler strap rusts, welding a new strap in its place will offer a complete and reliable repair.
