you could rig a temporary repair for about $5 and you won`t need any tools.
Take a soda can and cut the top and bottom off of it, then cut it lengthwise down one side.
I would recommend wearing gloves when you do that.
Then take it and roll it lengthwise, like you would do with a piece of paper,slide one end of into one side of the broken exhaust pipe and the other end into the other side of the broken exhaust pipe.When you let the can go it will spring back open enough to hold it in place.
Push the 2 broken ends of the exhaust pipe as close together as you can.you may need to wedge a piece of wood or something under it to hold the ends close while you do the next step.
take something called a muffler bandage, you can get one at any auto part store.
The last time I used one they were $1.99 but that was many many years ago, they probably cost about $5 now.
It`s a fiberglass 'bandage" that is coated with some type of dried resin.
There are directions on the package but basically what you do is you soak it in water for about 5 minutes then you take it out and wrap it tightly around the exhaust pipe where the 2 ends meet.you keep wrapping it tightly so that it overlaps both ends of the broken pipe and covers the broken ends of the pipes.
Then you take the wire ties that come with it and wrap them around the “bandage” to hold it in place temporarily.
Then you start the car and let it idle for about 10-15 minutes.as the exhaust pipe heats up it dries (cures) the resin which dries as hard as steel.
s been a lot of years since I used one to do a temporary patch job with one but it held up until i got the exhaust replaced.in fact when i finally did get the exhaust replaced it was because another section of the exhaust pipe had rusted through, but the muffler bandage repair was still holding. Im assuming they still sell muffler bandages, you`ll have to check your auto parts store.
it should hold well enough to last till sept 1st when you get paid and can get it fixed permanently.
edit: I checked on google and muffler bandages are still being made, you can get a cheap one for $2.99 or a deluxe one for $6.39
