Jack mutters: 1993 Corolla

The exhaust system has been mis-positioned, possibly by a shove on the end
of the tailpipe.

Is this system stainless, and would it harm it if I get a muffler shop to
heat the pipe somewhere and bend it back into position?

I can tell it's been shoved forward because the muffler hangers are
stretched a lot, and one of them won't quite reach any more.

Your expert opinion is invited.

If it is the original exhaust system, then IIRC, it is stainless. It is not
necessary to heat it up to bend it back into position but because if its
age, there is a possibility that the metal will crack when bending it back.

While you are at it, check the engine and transmission mounts to make sure
they are not out of position and pulling the exhaust forward.

Shouldn't be a problem as long as the pipe is not buckled and about to
crack. Put a torch on it and give it a shot.
