"exhaust liquid?" Could just be water (if you're lucky) or oil (if not so lucky). A strong smell (like rotten eggs?) is likely a bad catalytic converter. A bad cat can also cause a car to run rough/stall. A bad cat might also be accumulating condensation, or have rotted along the top and collecting water, which is why it's coming out the tailpipe. I would suggest taking a good look at your catalytic converter. At your cars age, it's about due for one if it has never been replaced.
