Your best bet would be to crawl under there and take a look.

I'm guessing its from being old. Go to the exhaust shop and see what they can do for you. Best case scenario would be that they could just weld it back together, worse case, they would have to replace some pipe from it being rusted and to thin to weld.

Let us know how it works out, and keep us updated
