The Flying Penguin? LOL.
If you are hearing an exhaust leak, then yes, it could be coming from there. It is common to see rust at those connectors. Your engine/emissions system creates water during the combustion cycle. But, without hearing the noise, I'm just guessing. Should get it up on a lift and listen for a leak.
I have a 2005 GMC Jimmy (200,000 KMs) that has been making noise when driving. The noise is not preset when sitting idle and only occurs when the gas pedal is pushed down to drive. It's not a specific noise, the general sound that the vehicle makes is just amplified when leaving idle and starting to drive. I apologize that that analysis isn't too technical. I've looked into some other threads with people posting about similar issues and saw frequent reference to there being a possible problem with the muffler.
I went under the vehicle and took some pictures. I'm wondering if anyone can tell me if this area in my pictures looks like a potential problem that could be causing this.

As well as a Youtube video:
I hope this is the best way to post pictures/video.
As you can see in the video and the pictures, the bolt (if that's what it is?) is rusted away on the top side and the top side appears separated when compared to the bottom side.
Thank you for any assistance!
