Water leak

Asked by Jul 15, 2016 at 12:36 PM about the 1992 Chevrolet C/K 1500 RWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have put new gaskets and had heads checked
and they are good  but still blows water out
exhaust what else could it be

1 Answer


Water can condense from the hydrobarbons in the exhaust as a normal byproduct (http://www.doityourself.com/stry/is-water-dripping-from-your-exhaust-pipe-normal), mind you this is only a small amount of condensation. If you are getting a LOT of water, and are seeing a loss of coolant, you should also check the intake gasket, or consider you may have a cracked water jacket in the engine. Again, unless you are seeing a loss of coolant as well, I wouldn't get too concerned over some water dripping from a tail pipe.
