If its little like kinda dripping when ur in park then its normal its a part of the engine warmup.... Caused by hot N cold.... Good luck


It's called condensation, when you shut your car off at night it cools off pulling the outside air in the exhaust system, that air contains water, and it collects on the inside of the exhaust pipes, when you fire up the engine the heat turns that water to vapor rather quickly and that is what you see when you first start it up, it will only last a few seconds then it's gone until the next cold start. The more moisture that is in the air the longer the vapor will last. HTH

Other than just after starting and warming an engine no water should come out of the exhaust. If you still have water or coolant coming out of the exhaust you likely have a blown head gasket or cracked cylinder head.
