As said, it eventually leaks, plus it looks very amateurish. You should take it to professional muffler shop they will be able to provide you with anything you need. The amount of time this repair will take varies depending on the type of patching material you opt to use. Some exhaust tape or epoxy can set and cure very quickly, while others may take over night to dry. On average, the cost will be around $200 to $400 but it really depends on the labor costs, the make of car and what sort of replacement parts are needed. Talk to your local mechanic to get an accurate figure for your particular problem.

Working with advanced manufacturing equipment, we are able to effectively control the quality of our products.
If it is still warm, the engine and exhaust are both still extremely hot. The exhaust piping in your vehicle can reach extremely high temperatures while the engine is running. Allow the vehicle to cool for a few hours before attempting to work on the exhaust to avoid burning yourself. An exhaust leak will cause noise first when the engine starts and under heavy acceleration, and then more continually if the part is allowed to fail entirely. The first step in diagnosing a catalytic converter or O2 sensor code is inspecting the exhaust system for leaks. The critical part of the flex pipe that fails is the inner accordion-bent pipe, and there is no practical way to reliably repair it. The above flex pipe repair cost estimates are for certified parts. If those weren’t required, then, some small amount of savings on non-certified parts would be possible. The labor time to replace the flex pipe is estimated at 1.2 hours.
Spray exhaust sealant on the pipe coming from the exhaust and the pipe it will connect to on the muffler. This will help establish a seal between the pipes and prevent any exhaust from leaking at the joint.Refer to the instructions on the exhaust sealant to know how long to let it cure. If your exhaust pipe is severely rusted or has suffered extensive damage, it likely cannot be repaired and instead will need to be replaced. However, if the issue is a small leak or damaged muffler, you can patch the leak or replace the muffler using common hand tools. You won’t be able to work on the exhaust pipe of your vehicle until it has cooled down for a while. The exhaust gas that travels through the exhaust piping is extremely hot while the engine is running and it could take hours for the metal to cool enough to touch.
We have three plants at work, two operating offices in China and one in South Korea. The company has a total manufacture area of square meters, with 400 employees, including 30 engineers, working together. There are 7 production lines for exhaust flexible pipe, 5 for EGR pipe, 4 for hydro forming parts and 3 for tail pipe, reaching a capacity of 7 million pieces annually. An in-house laboratory center is used to test material, product and its performance to ensure the quality.
