2 Answers


Water is a normal byproduct of the combustion process. If the liquid is only water, don't worry about it. Condensation from water will dry fairly quickly where antifreeze will dry slowly. Make sure this is water and not engine oil, transmission fluid, coolant, brake fluid etc.


If you have a lot of white smoke after the car is fully warmed up there could be a problem so keep an eye on the coolant level. If it is dropping you may have a head gasket issue.
