Question type: Maintenance & Repair

There is a black smoke deposit at the bottom of
my buick enclave 2011, and a small hole where the

It is normal on a muffler as they often put a hole so moisture will drain. The converter gets plenty hot and not sure that all converters have the water drain hole but unless it gets bigger, don't worry about it.

It is normal on my Enclave as well. Drains moisture.
