since i last asked a question, i had my car checked again by another mechanic that works on only foreign/imported cars. he said that i needed both of my flex pipes repaired/replaced! so, always wanting to do my own research on the side, i wanted to get an explanation and estimate for a flex pipe but the system does not recognize it! is there another name for this part? please help!!

recently, i hit or ran over something in the night which caused a very loud bang! the next day my car statred soundindg like a very loud truck when i turn it on and when i hit the gas! when i took it to a garage for diagnostics they said something about the front end of the exhaust and after an oil change they said there was also a leak somewhere! i think this is all coming from the same problem when i hit something because i did not have a leak before. i also have not seen anything hanging from underneath the car either. they also said that the muffler was still in tact. i have also been told by other sources that this sounds like i need a flex converter???....pls help!!!
