    Exhaust was starting to get loud on my '01 LW300. Not surprising at 150K
    miles. Found a failed flex coupler between the Y pipe and upstream muffler.
    Friend at a local shop cut out the coupler and welded in a new one. There's
    still a minor leak, probably a pinhole in the weld. Will let it run in a bit
    and leave some deposits where the leak is. can't find it right now. Only
    hear a whistle on heavy acceleration.
    Good news is that I got charged one hour labor @ $95 and his cost of $45 for
    the joint.

    I am an electronics guy and have repaired tools and consulted on stuff for
    the repair shop. In return I get repairs at cost.
