2003 Saturn vue v6- excessive water, moisture dripping out of tailpipe- same vehicle that's making the roaring noise


Water does drip out of the tailpipe as a matter of course. That's perfectly normal.

If you have a 'roaring' noise from the silencer/muffler area it's probably because there's a hole in it due to age/corrosion and the exhaust gases are leaking straight to atmosphere without being silenced by the muffler.

Water WILL drip from a holed silencer or pipe. This is normal. The water isn't your problem - you have a hole or split in the muffler or pipe

What is the cause of water dripping out exhaust pipe and engine smoking excessively?


Cold weather right? Dripping is the water condensing from the exhaust gases. The "smoke" is more than likely water vapor, just like your breath in cold weather. If you have smoke (black) in warmer weather, you have an excess fuel problem and won't pass emmision tests. If blue smoke you have oil leaks into the coubustion chamber. Also will not pass emmisions test.

What does it mean when water drips from muffler?


It means that everything is working as intended. One of the byproducts of engine combustion and the catalytic process is water. It is perfectly normal for small amount of water to drip from the exhaust.

Water dripping from exhaust pipe and running rough when at idle


Water dripping from the exhaust pipe is normal in cold weather until the exhaust system warms up--the water is condensation from the hot gasses meeting the cold (cooler) metal of the exhaust system.

Running rough? there are many causes, timing being one.

Water coming out exhaust


If you are losing coolant out the exhaust, the exhaust will have a sickly sweet smell as opposed to the normal stench. Otherwise, a small amount a water dripping from an exhaust pipe is not unusual, as moisture from condensation can build up inside the muffler when driving short trips; this moisture is expelled while driving. If you are not losing coolant, then this is probably what you are seeing and it is not a problem.

When I put water in my 97 Tahoe it starts leaking heavily from the caddilac converter and around the muffler and exhaust pipe... What is this a sign of cracked head? Blown head cracked block? Intake...


Sounds like more water than can get out a crack. Check if you have a frost plug on the block has come loose and leaking. There will be about 3 on each side of the engine block, located just below where the exhaust manifold mounts to the block. It's a pretty easy repair, provided there is enough room to work where it is located. Sometimes a smaller such plug will be found on the rear of the engine. The coolant must be leaking externally and running and dripping off your exhaust .

I have water leaking off the exhaust pipe but not at the end it's off the muffler part


Some mufflers have a hole in them so it can get rid of the water your car is making. This way they do not rust out.

2.0L VW Golf Leaking Water


It is most likely the A/C drain if you have been running your A/C system or have been using your defrosters. (normal operation)

Also, you may want to take a closer look and see if it is dripping from the exhaust. A normal by-product of the chemical reactions going on inside your catalytic converter is H2O. Most exhaust systems on modern automobiles are equipped with drip holes in the resonators and/or mufflers to help prevent severe corrosion of the exhaust system due to the water that is produced..

I have a 1995 honda accord 209,000 miles,my car leaks antifreeze out of the muffler whenever i refill it,but i dont see any white smoke or have had any problems with it overheating..i recently changed the...


There is NO way water can get inside the muffler / exhaust pipe without evaporating, and causing a white smoke at the tailpipe. Additionally, in order to get inside, you would get major power and idling problems. I would look at the cooling circuits near the firewall ( cooling hoses to the internal heater, for example) because one of them must be dripping water externally onto the exhaust pipe or muffler. If the car never overheats, there is a possibility that you are simply overfilling the cooling water bottle. The full mark for accord bottles, is waaay down, it looks as if the bottle was empty. As soon as the engine heats up, it will send excess water overboard.

Dropping water


Are you loosing water from the inside of the radiator?...then it is a blown head gasket, or a cracked head/block. Is there steam coming out of the exhaust? Is the water dripping from the exhaust pipe and from the small factory hole in the muffler....then it is normal. Most likely, as every car with air conditioning, the evaporator core collects frost even in the summer and the A/C cycles to heat it, and melt it off. It is meant to drip through a small pipe, under the car, onto the ground. It is perfectly clear and clean water. It is normal functioning of the air conditioning. In the winter when the defrost is selected to clear the windshield, the automatic air conditioning produces cold dry air, which is then heated to clear the moisture. Frost collects on the evaporator core. The system cycles to heat it off from time to time and it will drip clear water in the winter when you didn't even know that the air conditioning was on. After all who needs air conditioning in the winter when you did not select it. The automatic system turned it on to dry the re-heated air to clear the moisture from inside the car.
