Q: Exhaust Flange Gasket and Exhaust spring problems on 1995 Chevrolet Lumina

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
Will bad Exhaust Flange Gasket and/or Exhaust spring connecting the exhaust manifold to the exhaust pipe, cause a clunking noise when accelerating from a stop?

Thank you for your reply!

The engine & transmission mounts both are fine.
The clunking noise only happens when accelerating from stop, none on reversing backing up shift.
I recently had a job done, perhaps the exhaust flange gasket is damaged or missing, it has never been
replaced, though. Will this cause extensive damage, if left for awhile. Thanks.
