Since I didn't get any replys I am posting again, PLEASE HELP!

My 07' Subaru WRX has 65,000 miles on it. I have been known to do a tad bit more spirited driving then most others. While I was gone the oil got so low that you could hear the ticking noise. Recently I had your every day oil change performed and a diagnosics check done. It was found that my oil pan and oil cooler were leaking due to bad seals. The car was backed into a ditch by my father and it partially (not bad at all) kinked the exhaust in the back end right behind the silencer. My question is what could have been the cause for the bad seals? The exhaust or the low oil? Just wondering if I should replace the exhaust or not. Any POSITIVE feedback would be appreciated.

does it really matter why? if it leaks, fix it so it does not get low on oil again. heat and age are the main causes of seals failing so yours may not be abnormal.

I guess I can address these in order for what it is worth (not much)
1. bad seals are cause by heat, age, and well...the seals being bad
2. its possible low oil exacerbated the problem, but see #1 for likely causes
3. replace exhaust if you want, but you will need some other excuse to justify the purchase because it has nothing to do with the leaks or seals
4. I am positive
