That is normal,your catalytic converter changes uncombusted gas into vapor and the more ethanol we use,the more vapor

Check that you are not losing water out of the radiator or that you have to keep filling the "top up" tank all the time. If neither of these are happening then it will only be that the car isn't yet hot enough and is ejecting all the moisture created by the process of combustion out of the exhaust. Cold days and short drives do not help. the excess moisture left in the exhaust system rusts it out faster and low temps in the engine can cause sludge build-up. If you use the car for constant short cold weather trips, and you are NOT losing water, I would suggest you take it out on the highway and give it a good run to dry out all the moisture.

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

Water dripping from exhaust?

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.

Water dripping from exhaust


Most of the time water dripping is normal. The catalytic converter "converts" exhaust gases into water vapor.
The exhaust system also collects moisture when the engine is off.
It depends on how much water and when.
Are you adding coolant to the radiator ?

Water leaking at the exhaust paty


Water leaking from the exhaust when the car first starts. This is normal as the exhaust system is cold and the exhaust fumes contains a lot of water vapour (moisture). This is more noticable during very cold weather.
As your car warm up to normal operating temperature the water vapour is still present but because of the higher temperature you will not see this water vapour.

My 97 neon sport is leaking water from the muffler...what could be causing this?


This is normal and nothing to worry about, a car that is putting out small amounts of water is a good running car, the muffler has a drain hole in the backside to allow moisture to leak out so muffler does not rust out over time from held is water, if you are seeing a small amount of water dripping out it is nothing, this is normal. good day.

Is it normal for a car to drip water on the ground after running the air conditioner?


Yes, The air conditioner evaporator core inside the vehicle is very cold when the a/c is operating and moisture will condense on the outside of it, especially on a humid day. This moisture then trickles down the sides of the core and collects in the plastic housing beneath the core where it then escapes through the evaporator housing drain tube and drips on the ground beneath the passenger side of the chassis. The more humidity in the air the more moisture you will see dripping onto the ground. If the little drip hose should ever get plugged up this water then will overflow the housing and drip on the passenger side carpet so if you ever have that problem you'll know what the cause is.

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.

1995 ford windstar, 3.8L engine overheats but not all the time


are you sure its the water pump?Its located and the passenger side mid lower on the belt.One thing them cars were noted for was blown head gaskets.If you don't see any possible leaking and you smell it look at the exhaust pipe while its getting hot and you'll see with smoke come out or a lot of moisture coming out of the exhaust or a lot of dripping.Also if your radiator fans are not working and it heats up more just idling or short drives that will make it over heat and coolant to flow out of the radiator cap or over flow.I hope these things help you in locating the problem.Have a great day...
