exhaust/safety? Wants to drive it home to Savannah after Christmas. Backed into a tree about a month ago, now it runs rough, muffler sounds like it's going to fall off, she smells exhaust, gets loud clunk when she starts it, loses power up hills, and gas mileage is lower. Safe to drive? She may have crimped the exhaust system when she hit the tree. Have someone put it on a lift. If exhaust system looks okay, good be a misfiring cylinder, fixable by a tuneup. But, don't drive it in its current state--could get CO poisoning from exhaust.
