Its a 1986 toyota corolla Sr5 hatchback 4cyl carburated. When its cold its hard to start and I notice that on the ground where my exhuast is its black on the ground and all around my exhaust is black too. Theirs also a really bad smell when im driving, when im just driving normally not flooring it its smells fine but when I speed up or slam on the gas it smells, catalytic converter? Also my car is leaking coolant I just havent been able to pinpoint it, I know it cant be the head gasket because the previous owner replaced that, and it leaks a lot, like a little puddle. Just today I started my car to park in the garage so the car was on for mayb 5 mins I look under the car and its leaking coolant. Could it be the intake/exhaust gasket?
any help would be appreiciated, thanks.
