Not likely. But you know you have a hole in your muffler so unless you want to have an accident from carbon monoxide poisoning you should have it replaced ASAP. Then reset the light and if it does not come back on, you know that was the cause.

Would a hole in a 98 Toyota corollas mufler cause the car to feel like it wants to stall or like the engine is not getting enough power also is the muffler a single or three part system?

Because of condensation the inside of your muffler, the muffler will begin to deteriorate (rust) over time from the inside. This can and will cause holes in the muffler. Along with the hole (s) the internal structure of the muffler will eventually break apart and plug the muffler, preventing the exhaust gas and the pressure from the engine from exiting the vehicle. This will cause what is called "back pressure" on the engine, causing it to lose power. Extreme example would be "you push the gas pedal to the floor but the car will not go more the 25 miles per hour". I would recommend you have you muffler replace. That should solve your problem.

How does the exhaust pipe connect to the muffler?

Answer: Welded onBelow would be how to repair if the muffler has broken away from the exhaust pipe.If you have a welding machine:If your just attaching the muffler, You would need to attach the muffler to its hanger, then find a way to secure it to the exhaust so you can then weld it in place.If you do not have a welding machine:Most auto repair shops, have a welding machine so that they can do these kind of repairs if you lose your muffler, you can also purchase some special muffler/exhaust tape to tape around the break. Using the tape is a temporary fix.
