Im loosing water from exaust

You really need to give more details. Are you losing cooling liquid? In other words, does the vehicle overheat at any time, or do you have to replenish radiator water regularly?
Seeing water emitting from the exhaust is natural. Gasoline is a hydrocarbon compound, and it is the hydrogen in the molecules that explode in the combustion chamber when oxygen is drawn in from the atmosphere through the air intake and intake manifold, compressed in the engine and ignited by the spark. When hydrogen and oxygen are combined they release explosive energy, which is what makes the engine go.
These gases also form water when they combine, in the form of steam, which is blown out through the exhaust system. The exhaust system is designed to allow the exhaust gases to cool down before releasing them back into the air, and if conditions are right, especially if the air is cool, the steam condenses to water which drips, or even sprays, from the exhaust. This is quite normal.

Air suspension hummer h2

Your vehicle is equip with air bag system. You probably experiencing an air lost due to air bags leaks or your leveling valve is exhausting air at the exhaust port. Here is what you do. Spray soap with water on spray bottle and spray around the air suspension area. when you see bubbles coming out that's the leaks. fix it. Good luck.

Reduced engine power

Several checks for check at good exhaust/mech shops on clogged catalytic converter...dirty air filter...clean Mass Air Flow Sensor (near air filter, use only MAF sensor spray) Spray and wipe out throttle body with spray cleaner...dirty gas use fuel additive "Heet" removes water, and use gas addidtive fuel injector cleaner...I like the STP super concerntrated...Most of these are low cost checks. Hope this helps.

1998f1504.6wtriton runs fine but getting codes 401,171and174check all vacum lines,dpfe sensor,sprayed carb cleaner everywhere,new egr ,egr tube,took off elbow and throttle body cleaned it up no blockage...

Some of these intakes have a channel under the throttle body that supplies flow to the EGR. The channel is below the mounting plate for the air horn. Also clear the computer of old Codes.

Code 171 and 174 mean lean condition. It means more air is getting into fuel mix than is metered through air intake. Try using water spray bottle on all seams and Vacuum lines while engine runs and opening will draw in water and affect RPM.

Use water spray on Brake booster while engine runs. Bad diaphragm will leak Vacuum.

Finally, rear metal tube to DPFE has 2 short Vacuum lines which DPFE fits on. The metal tube goes to Exhaust. Some have a metal ridge on this tube. The ridge can leak Exhaust flow and affect the DPFE readings. Sometimes rust can build in this tube and it may need to be cleaned to restore flow.

Cracked exhaust manifold. with engine off, on a cool motor, put a shop vac in reverse up the tail pipe. this low pressure will show any leaks in the exhaust. Use soap and water to spray the exhaust manifold. Any crack will draw air and cause the engine to run lean

Whereis the number 5 coilpack located

I will tell you an easy way to find out. If your car is a v-8 or v-6 that is not FW drive. V-8 will be the third coil pack from the front on. V-6 will be the last one on the driver side. FW drive or not, if you are unsure. Put some water in a spray bottle and spray your exhaust manifolds on each cylinder. Do not spray the coil pack! Spray it while the car is running. The water should evaporate instantly. If the water does not evaporate on one of the cylinders on the manifold. That will be your bad coil pack above it.

Revs high then nearly cuts out on idle

Revs high for a couple of seconds - how high?
... worried about doing more damage to the car - what damage is already done?

I don't know what is wrong and I would need a more comprehensive and accurate description to even begin to guess but I thought I would mention how the burning of fuel produces copious amounts of water naturally. Petrol is a hydrocarbon. When it burns it combines with the oxygen in the air to form (mostly) carbon dioxide and water.

The water is expelled through the exhaust in the form of water vapour and when the exhaust is cold some condenses. Vehicles used regularly for short commutes rarely thoroughly heat the exhaust system enough or long enough to evaporate the accumulated water and so sometimes a fair amount can be expelled at once.

A water spray from the exhaust should only ring alarm bells if the coolant level keeps falling.

Gas goes out the exhaust pipe and no gas on spark plug

What kind of vehicle/engine is it? this question is very vague. Your injector will be on the intake manifold in a direct port fuel system and there will be multiple injectors. You may have fixed one, but you may have more to clean/replace. If it's a throttle body system, the problem is not your injection anymore, but your timing (distributor or cam timing) or you could have bad plugs. There is no reason for fuel to be coming to the exhaust, but the products of combustion of unleaded fuel are CO2 and water. If your timing is off, or rinning high rpms, then, perhaps fuel will get into the exhaust, but that again comes back to throttle and timing. And your catalytic converter on your vehicle should clarify this.

I have a 1997 honda accord coupe ex. When it rains or when I wash my car steam comes from under the hood of the car then it stops what should I do?

As an off the top of my head answer, it would seem that water is getting into the radiator or onto the exhaust and condensing on the ignition system, causing it to ground out, Try spraying all the exhaust components that your can see that are likely ot be affected with a water repellent spray. Seal your plug leads at the plug and distributor head with a small smear of silicone sealant. Also check the inside of your distributor cap for moisture build up and spray that as well.
