[V6-12v] Exhaust Leak at Sleeve Coupler

I don't know anything about that joint in particular (or if it  
normally uses some form of replaceable gasket), but there is a  
product category called muffler putty that can be used to seal  
exhaust seams where the fitment isn't as tight as it should be for  
whatever reason. It's the exhaust equivalent of plumber's dope, and  
seals up small leaks.

Any auto parts store will normally carry at least one product in the  
category (brand may vary, but concept remains the same -- a putty  
that will harden to form a permanent exhaust gasket between the pipes  
and be rated to handle the temps exhausts can run at).
