it depends on the quantity of water. if it's pissing water then no that's not good but if it's just dripping water that's fine. For one its a byproduct of burning gas, two if you don't let the exhaust get hot enough it gets condensation and drips water from the exhaust. The only time it's ok to piss water out of the exhaust is a couple seconds after fully submerging it and the pressure forces the water out otherwise QQF lol

thanx this was really helpfull and now i tell it to the world naaa i'am just kidding


its fine if its a little bit, i wouldnt describe it as being 'good'. it doesnt indicate in anyway that the engine is working well.


yeah its fine! its just a colection of condensation in the exhaust pipes and when the car accelerates it comes out. its more prominant in colder weather when the hot exhaust gasses and pipes meet the cold air
