Bad Exhaust Sound

My factory exhaust system seems to have developed a strange sound which I recorded in the video link below. Any suggestions on what may be causing this are greatly appreciated.

You'll hear the main exhaust sound but there is this secondary sound that sounds like a rapid putt-putt sound which is constant. Hard to pinpoint the source of the sound but it seems to emanate from under the car somewhere around where driver and front passenger seats are...so not towards the axle backs.

Also about halfway through video you'll hear what sounds like a compressor kicking on and I think that's my AC going south on me. It makes that intermittent on-off sound whenever the AC is on. Don't think it ever sounded like that or that loud before.

Could be a leak from a slip joint. Maybe a busted clamp, remember it's 10 years plus old.

In my defense, I was left unsupervised.

Yeah I think it's a leak as you mention. When at a standstill with windows down I often smell a strong exhaust odor which I never smelled before this sound started.

best to put it up on a rack and see if you can find it. you will be able to feel the air escaping from any leak around any joint of break.

"Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the Government take care of him had better take a closer look at the U.S. Native-American Indian."
