Well i have a question that may seem stupid but im really perplexed. My car has a lot of water in the exhaust. I dont mean it just drips out the tailpipe, i mean at the muffler where the pipe joins in it looks like a small waterfall when the car is running.
I understand the principle of condensation lol, but this goes far beyond that. There must be a gallon of water in there and it leaves trails and puddles. My first thought before i noticed the muffler leaking under the car was omg bad head gasket! Cause water was coming out the tailpipe with a little steam. Then while watching the tailpipe i saw water running under the car. So i did what any red blooded american girl whos dad worked on cars would do…i tasted it >_> It didnt taste like anything and it was clear. So if not a head gasket and not a cracked block wth is causing all that water in the muffler?
I let it run for an hour checking the coolant and watching the exhaust. When it warmed up good enough to kick on the fan i carefully opened the cap to see if the tstat opened and the water was getting circulated. It looked like it so i topped it a tad closed it back up. No water being taken up from the reservoir either. So i dont think its a head gasket or block issue. My cousin came by and he saw it leaking and said god you blew a gasket or something. I said i dont think so the water is fine in the radiator,he was just as confused as me.
My exhaust does have a really high emissions smell, but i dont think it smells like anti freeze. Is my muffler just a water reservoir lol
