Pictures always help.
Multiple designs need personal attention, if the unit didn't leak here before it wouldn't be rusty there now however vibration may have caused a crack in that joint and that pipe could give you no notice but what you see now before it breaks.
Best fix it before it does break.
You might get away with a mild wire brushing and spray paint
multiple coats of paint
on it, letting each coat dry before reapplying.
May work for a short time.
