Exhaust Leak at Sleeve Coupler

Muffler cement or muffler tape.  Loosen up the coupler and put lots of
muffler cement where it overlaps the exhaust pipe.  You can also run a
row or two of muffler tape around both ends of the pipe and persuade the
coupler on so it acts as a gasket.  Tape is easier to use if you have the
exhaust loose, muffler cement will usually do it though, or sometimes it
just takes a bit of time, condensation and rust will usually seal the
clamp in a week or two on it's own.  If you don't want to loosen
anything, you can force the muffler cement into the gaps with glove
covered fingers.
