My exhaust is coming out at the front of the car not the rear

Do you mean broken off and stuck inside or broken off and fallen out? Broken off and fallen out in this case is a good thing. Sounds like you mean the exhaust is broken at the manifold but what isn't clear is which piece, the manifold or the exhaust pipe. The manifold is a part of the engine, the exhaust pipe is connected to the manifold via the flange you speak of so if it is broken (coming from the engine as a base point) before the flange you need to change the manifold (less likely - hardly ever breaks - usually made of cast iron or cast aluminium) or where they typically break just after the flange (exhaust pipes are notorious for rusting out here, you will need to replace the front exhaust pipe and donut (gasket within the flange). Due to the high heat in this area it is extremely common for the bolts holding the pipe to the manifold to not just be ceased to it (lube will probably do no good) but to actually weld (or forge if you will) themselves to the metal of the pipe, in which case you need to cut them out with a torch. A good mechanic can usually do this without damaging the manifold. That is why it is a good thing if they have broken off and fallen out, much easier to change then welded in bolts (which would not fall out). I say replace the front exhaust pipe because without knowing which year your protege is or if it has an after market exhaust I don't know for sure if it is a one piece system or more than one piece. If it is a one piece you will need to either change the whole thing or do some cutting and welding to piece a section in. In which case, I do not recommend cutting the new piece you purchase but if the old exhaust on the vehicle is in alright shape from the muffler back you may be able to section it off and just replace the front section. Piecing it together would require at least one more piece, one to contact the old pipe to the new which would also need to be welded on but this method can still be cheaper (most of the time). Anything other than a simple in/out replacement will require torches and obviously if the bolts are welded in it is not a simple in/out job.

How much does it cost to fix a exhaust leak?

how long is a piece of string?........depends on the leak,if its a pipe,you can use exhaust tape,which will wrap around it and seal it .If its a box then you will have to replace it........NOW with any car the exhaust pipe rusts from the INSIDE so to cure it permanently,you gonna have to replace the whole system from the cat backwards.....

I have a 2002 dodge stratus rt. did a comp. test on the front 3 cylinders and the first was 155 the second was 153 and the third was 30 yes 30 .is it the head gasket.

it definitely could be a head gasket. A cylinder leak down test will help confirm where the problem might be. If it leaks into the intake manifold or out of the exhaust pipe you may need to have a valve job done on the head. If it leaks into one cylinder 2 then look towards the head gasket. If it leaks into the oil pan you might have piston or ring damage. Other then that you won't know until the cylinder head is removed to do a visual inspection of all the parts.

I have 96 Caprice Classic...muffler has begun making quite a throaty rumble...I took to Monro Muffler...they said I need to replace from Manifold all the way to back....they want some $600. Anybody have...

I can't see your exhaust system, but I do recommend that you have them show you the "why" of it. Generally the front pipe and the cat last a long time and generally don't need to be replaced very often. If the flanges are rusted and have failed there are "wrap around" replacements that can be used without pipe replacement. Most common is to change everything from the cat back. As I said, have them actually show you what is wrong...or take it to another shop and without telling them the original findings, have them look at it!!! Since there is very little involved except a visual inspection, most shops will not charge or will charge very little for this.

85 Bronco 351w fuel leak

Sounds like you are rusted out. Even the factory parts are not that expensive and they are properly bent. Check the dealer.
If substituting aftermarket piping you want to either replace the bad section with a splice or the whole piece. Notice the end connections and where you will attach the replacements.
Notice the routing of the gas line away from hot exhaust parts and areas a lift jack will crush your line. Notice what moves close to the fuel line to allow for travel.

You may be able to splice a piece of rubber fuel line into a metal line with a few clamps.

I have seen everything you will need at Autozone and Oreillys and similar stores with the exception of Factory parts.

Making a soundlike a hole i n muffler

Depending on what engine is in your truck, I think that canister does not have a hose connected to it. A common source of that exhaust leak noise is from a broken thermactor check valve in the back of the engine. If it is a Ford V8 look in the back of the engine closest to the firewall. There is a Metal pipe that is bolted to the back of the left & right cylinder head. in the middle of the pipe is a bulblike checkvalve that has a 1" hose that suppose to be connected to the check valve... if the hose is not connected look to see if the top of the check valve has rotted off and the broken piece is still clamped in the inside of the hose. The easiest way to replace the valve if it is broken is to unbolt the tube forn the left & right side of the rear of the cylinder heads and fish the tube out and clamp the tube on a bench vise. Do not distort the tube or you will struggle to bolt it back on.
