exhaust problem

on my 84 ford ranger, with a 2.0L 4cyl. . iam trying to seal the exhaust pipes where i joined them . but with no luck at all , i tried that 2 part epoxy, that didnt work, tried muffler cement , that didnt work, iam trying to seal the pipe that comes off the manifold to the catylytic converter, just small cracks around the pipes where they were joined, what should i be using and where do i get it ? any information would be great . thanks

Likely bent or damaged. Replace the pipe.

Only other solution, and it's a band aid one, is to bring it to a muffler shop and have them weld up the cracks for you. Quite hokey, but *will* get the job done.

Exhaust leaks are dangerous and waste fuel and make a helluva racket.

Sealant won't work
