two problems with my 1990 toy.camry

My 1990toy.camry auto.4cyl with 150,000miles. right cv joint started clicking and it's leaking condensation from the area of the exhaust manifold(leak is not from the air cond. ) I am only going to keep the car for 5 more months( about 4,000 miles of driving).How long can I put off the repairs in terms of safety or further damage.

Pitch it now.

Exhaust manifold leaks can mean exhaust in the car. You don't want carbon monoxide in the car, it can kill you. It's odorless and colorless.

As for the CV joint, it could in theory just bust and stop turning.

The car sounds rough, I'd pitch it now and donate it and take a tax writeoff.
