    Exhaust leak

    I've got a leak at the flange where the resonator section connects with the pipe coming down from the manifold. The spot that's basically under the doors. Is there supposed to be a gasket there? I haven't taken it apart, but I went by Advance Auto Parts today and looked for one on the shelf and didn't see anything. I asked the counter guy and he showed me the diagram they have on their system. It doesn't indicate a gasket there. I wanted to check if there were any slick fixes before I cut this section out and sleeve it.

    Make one? You can buy a sheet of exhaust gasket material and cut out your own. A lot cheaper and easier than cutting and welding. Felpro and Mr Gasket both make this, and it's pretty inexpensive, less than $20. Looks like a special order at any parts store, but Amazon has it prime:

    perhaps a dumb question, but did you try tightening the bolts? Don't recall a gasket there.

    Are you talking about where the pipe connects? Three nuts? If so there is a donut gasket. I will see if I can find it online. I bought one from rock auto. It was cheap

    not sure which one you are looking for so here are several

    No. This one has two bolts.
