Go over the system when cold with a good light. Check all the connections and see if they are loose. If they are, use some penetrating oil on the bolts. After the oil soaks in try to tighten them. Look for rust holes in the pipes, muffler, resonator, etc. Use your ears. You'll find it. Last time I had issues was on a 99 Corolla with 300K. It was a loose connection. Some PB and a wrench fixed it. Don't go to one of the muffler chains to fix it. They will tell you that you will need a new system. If you cannot fix it, go to an honest mechanic.

Cold start have someone cover exhaust pipe see where sound and air escape.
