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....
safety first.
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
3: cracks.
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).

SOURCE: what repair is needed to stop exhaust manifold leak

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.

Where is the freeze plug located at on a 1989 cressida

The freezer plug is located on the left side of the motor under the exhaust manifold towards the back.I think its visible if you take off the metal heat shield that's on the manifold or maybe from the bottom if you lift the car.If its not leaking from there than it could be coming from the back of the motor. There are hoses, a EGR cooling plate and metal water lines on the motor.

Ive been having issues with my 2001 tacoma pre runner. The check engine light goes on and off. It read a P0171. I replaced spark plugs and MAF sensor. Light has not come back on again but engine still...

That code is P0171= system too lean (bank 1). The computer is reading a lean condition and is trying to richen up the mixture but is unable to fully compensate for the condition. That is why the engine is running so rich and you are losing mileage. You should be looking for an air leak in the intake system after the MAF, a vacuum leak into the intake manifold, or an exhaust leak at the exhaust manifold gasket or some where above the oxygen sensor. The O2 sensor is seeing excess oxygen that is unaccounted for by the MAF.

Oil leaking front of engine not sure where .could it be caused by plugged egr valve

NO, the EGR valve routes exhaust gases to the intake manifold, so there no way it could ever leak oil. you will need to clean the engine real good, I would use "brake cleaner" and then run it and find out were the leak is starting from.

Low pressure exhaust sensor faulty on passat 57

If you have low pressure in the exhaust manifold, then there would an exhuast leak somewhere from the exhaust manifold to the tail pipe. These leaks tend to get bigger over driving time. It may be the exhaust manifold gasket, or a crack in the manifold. Give a good listen for a sputtering sound. Part of the exhaust pipes have to be removed for access to the manifold. A good spray of PB breaker will help a lot with the bolts here.
Escaping gas is bad for the environment. This also causes gas to enter the manifold and make its way to the valves. The temperature of the incoming air is very cold compared to the combustion chamber and can cause damage the your valves by stressing them.
If you find no leak, then you may consider the sensor may be faulty or the leak is very small.
Good Luck.

Anti freeze leeking

I have seen a couple of these now with headgasket leaks to the outside of the block just as you describe. I solved them both with a stop-leak additive, not something I would normally use, but I really didn't want to pull the heads because the exhaust studs always break on these engines. I would find out for sure where the leak is before proceeding though. If it's a hose or frost plug, you'll have to repair it properly.
