exhaust problem?

since this morning my car started skippin a bit and noise is like coming from my exhaust. my chek engine light startee blinking as well. wen i got outa the car it had a bad smell coming out the exhaust. is it possible i got holes in the welding they did when i got my custom h pipe? i see a whole already where my tips were welded. and saw some gas drip out from there as well. or can it be something else causing this? like spark plugs , fuel filter ? thanks for any help

You saw gas dripping out of the exhaust? By the tips? Are you sure it wasn't condensation? Liquid gas shouldn't be dripping out of the exhaust especially the tips. Do you still have your stock cats on?

yeah. im not sure if its condensation like u said. but i had it welded again and it still didnt work i guess its more serious. i came to NTB so they can diagnose it for me. i dont think its plugs and wires cuz i had em changed in nov. so idk i hope its not real serious cuz im broke
