Question about Toyota Cressida
Exhaust leaks are common, and very dangerous.
if parked say in a snow bank , you can get CO death easy.
odorless and fall asleep (no pain) death.
so keep car out side, and not near snow....
first off, i dont know what back means.
the exhaust on most cars runs from front to rear.
from 6 feet to 10 feet.
exhausts can leak for a variety of reasons.
1: bolts fell off.
2: gasket failures
4 :rust through.
5: parts fell disconnected due to clamp failures.
6: road hazard damaged.
on cars, damage has no limits. (moving running cars)
so what we d,o is have a professional look at it (ASE mech)
to see cause and damage and suggest solutions.
one other way is to take a photo of said damage
or point to crack, in photo and say,
what do you think.
then an only then can a web bunny help you./

You might have a warped exhaust manifold, or head. You can check this with a straight edge and a feeler gauge. Also check for hairline cracks.
Is the carbon on the outside of the injectors, or on the inside? If it's on the inside then it could be from cheap gas. Do a fuel injector service to get them cleaned out.
If you had exhaust leaking into the intake manifold you would definitely know about it(backfire).

It depends on the leak. First of all - see if you can see any cracks on the manifold - telltale signs would be a visible crack and black residue around it from exhaust. If you see that the manifold should be replaced. - welding would be a possible alternative. If there are no cracks - check all the nuts and studs to make sure they are tight. Make sure the exhaust pipe is tight and not leaking at the connection. If everything looks tight and secure - change the exhaust manifold gasket. All of that could be done at home depending on your comfort leel with the tools and time available.
