Why would water be in muffler

Burning gasoline generates some water. When your truck is cold, that water condenses in the muffler. Normal.

+1996 e300 6cyl lexus - why is gasoline coming out of the exaust manifold

I suspect that what you see is not fuel but water condensation from the combustion process The reasoning is this---. Fuel in the exhaust would ignite and either explode destroying the muffler or be burnt up in the catalytic converter and secondly for the engine to so rich as to allow fuel out of the exhaust it wouldn't run

Water is coming out from my tail exhaust pipe Ford Expedition 2003 4X4

When gasoline is burnt the products are carbon dioxide and water:- 2C8H18 (gasoline) + 25O2 (air) ----------> 18H2O (water) + 16CO2 (carbon dioxide) If you take short trips the water content will condense in the cold exhaust pipe and collect in the muffler boxes (silencers). At a certain point the water will fill the mufflers, overflow and begin to dribble out of the exhaust tail pipe. It is worthwhile to occasionally give your car a longer run to allow the exhaust to become sufficiently hot and to evaporate all the collected water. The water is acidic and hastens the corrosion of the exhaust pipes.

I have gasoline in my muffler.

If you are having problems with gasonline in you muffler, than I would suggest checking you spark an make sure that each and every cylinder is firing as it is supposed to. Sounds like you are not getting gas burned completely . It could be a bad 02 sensor flooding the engine.

Water comes out muffler

I safely assume that this car runs on gas not diesel. When you burn gasoline, as well as carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and a whole host of other noxious gases, you get water, produced as a gas (vapour). When this water vapour meets a cooler surface (the inside of your muffler system) it condenses into liquid water and will continue to condense until the surfaces around it give it sufficient energy (via heat) to convert it back to gas.

When you start a car, the water vapour turns to water in your muffler, the pressure of the expanding gases of combustion push the water along with it towards an area of lower pressure (outside the muffler via your tailpipe). Until your muffler system warms up, you WILL get water from your tailpipe.

ASSUMING that your engine is running sweetly, that is, if it is running like a bag of old nails, then you may have a cylinder head gasket (seal) problem. If so, take it to the Honda shop.
