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.

Mercury sable leaking water

This is not necessarily a bad thing. It is a quantitative thing. Excessive water vapor is bad. Normal condensation is unavoidable.

If the exhaust is sweet smelling and the vapor forms clouds then there is a problem. If both puddles are about the size of coffee cup saucers it should be normal.

Window fogging

If it were a leaking heater core, the inside glass surface would have an oily film along with the fog.
It sounds like your fresh air intake is not working. You have to get fresh air from the outside to be able to get rid of the excess moisture inside the cabin. Or you have excessive moisture inside from a water leak that the system can't overcome.

Unfortunately your going to have to access and remove water pump again until you find what is causing the leak. Possible gasket slipped , left over material or excessive pitting.

Water is leaking from the bottom corner of the freezer

Is it an excessive leak ie pools of water on the floor? If it is not a major leak it might be normal condesation being drained.

Water pump leaks

When water pump bearings go bad, the excess wobble starts to ruin the seal, so it starts to leak.
Replace it.

There are no visible sign of leaks when the car is idle but once I drive it it is leaking antifreeze and of course overheating. I'm guessing water pump?

If the water pump is leaking, it will leak at idle in the driveway. Are there no leaks at all in the driveway? If not, check the tail pipe for excessive moisture/steam. Your coolant may be leaking thru a blown head gasket into one of the combustion chambers. Let us know if you have more questions.

Display reading top up coolant, losing water but no signs of leak

Replace your overflow cap. You usually don't see it leaking but the cap no longer holds the psi and the water comes out and dries quickly from the heat. Try replacing the cap and I think you will be surprised at such a simple problem can cause.
