Anybody know of anything that contacts and expands with heat as opposed to just cracking and falling off?

My old toyota has a whole in the exhaust - up near the engine. It failed its last WOF and we done a patch up job with soem stuff we bought at repco or somewhere like that. We thought it wold do the job, and it did long enough to get the WOF, then about 2 days later it fell off so we need something to use to patch it that will not crack and fall off.

We cant be assed getting it welded though will go to this if no suggestions forthcoming.

Basically the WOF is almost due and that will be the only thing itll fail on, and we want it to get its WOF so we can sell it.

used to get some stuff for the fireplace flue - fire cement? sealant? (sorry, its been years since we used it) it should certainly be flexible considering the temps of fireplaces!

can't remember if it comes in strips or more like chewing gum  or something else 

places like mitre10, or fireplace shops should sell it

If it's a joint, it's most likely the flange gasket, which is a piece of piss to change.   

Then it's done properly.
