The only valve I can think of in the exhaust is an EGR but that connects to the inlet

Often it may be possible to temporarily block the end of the exhaust with holding a cloth over it and eventually if there is no leak the engine will (should) stall due to the back pressure. Otherwise you should get at least a better indication of where any leak may be
i have tryed that one with my hand over the back and there seemed to be nothink and the car kept running it did not stall it drives me mad it comes from the front and when i am putting it in the garage the car sounds terrible i looked under the car and there is like a black dust on the heat shield in the middle part by the silencer but ford dealership say there is nothink i think i may have to look myself as it seems that with ford if you want somethink done you have to do it yourself or i will take it do kwik fit do they charge for looking or do they look for free ?
