 A Clarinet troubles

I have borrowed a very old Buffet crampon r13 A Clarinet from my teacher, and it doesn't seem to be functioning properly. It worked fine during our lesson and the day after, but it has been wacky since. When I play the lowest notes, they come out 12 notes higher as if I pushed the register key. Also, the altissimo notes and any note involving the c# key do not speak. I have examined the instrument and nothing seems visually wrong. It has not been outside and has been cared for properly. I have heard it may be the alignment of the joints, but even if I alter the alignment, something goes wrong. I am able to play the full range of the instrument on my b flat instrument, so it has nothing to do with my technique. I also have an audition in a week in which I must play the Mozart clarinet concerto, the first movement and I need to be getting used to this foreign instrument, not scrambling to fix it. Maybe because it's a junior Philharmonic they will allow it to be played on my b flat?
