You will need floor jack and jack stands,and socket set, jack up the front of the car as high as you can and support with jack stands,apply emergency break ,disconnect negative battery cable,leave floor jack in place for added saftey,looking from underneath up at the exaust you should be able to see the bolts on the exaust ,long extension needed to reach them,they will be rusted and usually stubborn to get off,reccomend spraying them with wd-40 or liquid wrench before starting,also if you can get to them a small wire brush on the threads to clean them up helps,make sure your socket fits tightly,recomend using 6-point socket,carefully try to break them loose,if they turn,go slow,and stop,spray them agian,tighten back up a turn or so .then remove,these bolts will cross thread and lock ,forcing them can berak the stud,so take your time,wear saftey glasses,rusty particles will be falling in your face,you will probably have to unhook the rubber hangers on the exaust in frony of the catilitic converter so you can lower the pipe enough to replace the doughnut,hope this helps,aloha from maui todd0708

I have an exhaust leak where the donut gasket is i was wondering if their might be a diagram

What kind of diagram are you wondering about? If you just take off the three nuts that hold the pipe to manifold, you should be able to pull the pipe down enough to get the doughnut gasket out. If not then unfortunatly you will have to remove both sides. Hope this helps you out in your task.

I have a nissan silvia s13. There was recently an accident, and what happened was somebody crashed into the rear of the car. I'm now getting a exhaust smell in the car. Any ideas?

It`s probably the exhaust doughnut between the exhaust pipe and the exhaust manifold its a gasket that can move around and be damaged easly

Head gasket is cracked

there is no connection betwen the doughnut gasket on the outlet of the exhaust manifold and the head gasket. The head gasket is under the cylinder head and does not crack. It may blow due to compression pressure leaking between the head and the block.
Are you sure you don't have a brkoen stud on the exhaust manifold where it mounts to the blcok? Known Nissan isue. The bolts don't stretch when hot and eentaully they all break off. Newer studs do stretch.
