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.
What piping loops are you talking about and where are they located.
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.
send me on my way by rusted root
There a re number of thing that can cause it, more than likely though you'll need to get your muffler replaced, had that same problem with mine, of course my muffler had rusted off so that could also be your problem, hope this helps
There is no trick to this and no meaningful instruction. Mufflers on a 2000 Outback are essentially the same as every vehicle muffler made since they have been building cars. It is a tough job if you don't have right the tools and will to deal with parts that are rusted in place. Having done this job more than once my recommendation is to find a local muffler shop and have them do it. It won't cost much more than doing it yourself. Check on parts cost then call the muffler shop and see how they compare.
HOUNDDAWG Sayz: You didn't mention if the muffler and catalytic converter are new or if you simply re- piped old ones. When a dying catalytic converter has burned off most of the inside platinum plating it will, depending on ambient and engine exhaust temps sound different from day to day. (they also tend to backfire) Superheated platinum completely consumes the unburned fuel in the exhaust gases (no, engine valve combustion doesn't completely burn the fuel before the exhaust valves open, and yes, increased efficiency/fuel consumption due to the catalytic converter increases engine horsepower, with the added benefit of reduced greenhouse gasses and cleaner air for us to breathe) If that's the problem then it's time for a new CC. Or, a muffler baffle could be floating loose, possibly from a broken weld inside. Or, a old muffler patch is loose or the muffler has rusted through. Time for a new muffler. Or, your flange gasket (in auto repair vernacular, the "donut") is broken or burned through or one of the flange bolts is broken and as "it" (the gasket and or the flange for the exhaust system pipe) shifts from road shock it allows unsuppressed engine noise to slip past the "donut" and escape. (the gasket is between the engine block and the exhaust system) Is it possible that a hanger or muffler clamp is loose, broken, rusted or missing and the exhaust piping can shift, opening gaps where the sections are clamped together? In any case a visual inspection (on a lift with a drop light and inspection mirror) will likely isolate the problem. If there is no apparent physical damage, missing hardware or loose sections of piping the problem will be in the catalytic converter and or muffler. If the (somewhat pricey) CC is bad it's best to replace the (relatively cheap) muffler at the same time.
Heres how i eventually did it ... 1. Using needle nose locking pliers i held the pipe to the muffler so that it wouldnt get knocked back into the muffler. 2. Then using a cold chisel i made a gap between the muffler (the part that houses the pipe) and the pipe. I did this so that the pipe could be cut through without also cutting the muffler. 3. Then using a power saw with a metal cutting blade i cut through the tailpipe. 4. Then I was the able to crimp the edges of the pipe up and pull it out. 5. Have a beer for a job well done !!!
The rusted nail will have a greater mass than the same nail before it was rusted.
The better question is why would you install a muffler that is rusted? In my experience exhaust installation is a job that I don't want to repeat often, and once a muffler has started to rust it will go quickly! If it is only a little surface rust, then take a wire brush to it and it should be fine. Your bigger concern will be getting a pipe clamp to go on or getting the pipe to go in or over the inlet and outlet as they are usually misshapen by the original pipe clamp. My recommendation would be to get a new muffler, they are less expensive than you might think! You can go on www.partsamerica.com and check out prices before you go to the store. You can buy the parts there, I do sometimes and you can get free shipping, usually I buy at my local store, but I always use it when trying to determine how much a part will cost and they provide pricing for high end to low end you you can make and informed decision. Good Luck

I'm having the same issue. I'm trying to replace my front axle and I need to remove the muffler to get to the axle bolt. Please help. I recently replaced the front axle on my STX38 so I took off the muffler as well. The muffler's heat shield needs to come off first, I think there's just two bolts holding that in place on the front of it. If I remember correctly, there were 4 bolts total securing the muffler. There are two bolts towards the front of the muffler that connect vertically to the body of the mower, these need to be removed. If you look at the very top of the muffler where it connects to the engine you'll see another two bolts that need to be removed. I had a tough time getting these two completely out since mine were a bit rusted but they did eventually come off. Once all these bolts are removed, I had to wiggle the muffler out of the bottom of the mower. For the people doing front axle replacement - once the muffler is removed you should have access to the bolt securing the axle.
NO! A rusted nail is a chemical change
If galvanized piping was uset to plum the house, it may have rusted shut, an easy fix would be to run a new line in copper or PEX from the water heater to the valve

Rusted Iron that rusted over thousands of millions of years!
Rusty hammer to the rusted calipers should do the trick

Rusted cast iron.
If it is "rusted out" you do not repair it, You do replace it with XHCI
Rusted iron is not pure iron; it is an iron oxide.
It can be. It is the past tense and past participle of the verb "to rust." Examples: Rusted steel is not as strong as the original steel. The Tin Man's joints were rusted, so he could not move.
