Car will be getting a little louder, you may hear a ticking noise if the leak is at the exhaust manifold. You can also start your car up in the morning, and look under neath. If it is leaking, you may see smoke coming out in the middle of the system or any other place than the tail pipe.. All exhaust should come out of the tail pipe only. Good luck and don't forget to rate this solution thanks

I doubt it. The leak could cause problems with the O2 sensors but that is not likely.

Exhaust manifold

A cracked exhaust manifold should not effect your motor unless you have an exhaust driven turbo or something depending on exhaust back pressure to be there. I know where I live you can not get a vehicle with exhaust leaks infront of the passengers compartment inspected though so you may want to have the leak fixed for passenger safety.

It sounds like maybe an exhaust leak but it has no power

It's possible that an exhaust leak upstream, or ahead of the O2 sensors would cause the O2 sensor to give an inaccurate rich/lean fuel mixture signal to the computer, causing the computer to compensate by increasing or decreasing the timing and or fuel injector pulse, thereby causing the engine to run poorly, which would throw more trouble codes,,etc. It's like falling dominoes. One reaction to the possible false trouble code causes another, and so on. Fist things first. Have the exhaust check for leaks or damage. Leaking exhaust is very dangerous. If there is an exhaust leak, and yo have it repaired, yo will need ot scan the computer for trouble codes and clear them. If the leak was the cause of all the codes then you should not have any more problems related to that. Let me know how this plays out.

Start the car open the hood. with the hood open listen and smell for the leak. Probably the frt exhaust manifold leaking. Independent mechanic can repair just as easy. No need for dealer. If the leak is bad enough you will smell exhause leak. Look for the area with the greatest amount of noise.
