Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a mercedes benz c280 1999 model, when I
start the engen it starts and if I Rev too much
water comes out of the exhaust pipe, what could
be the reason for that

1 Answer


If you are running water in the cooling system rather than antifreeze could be a blown head gasket. However if you are using antifreeze in the cooling system and water comes out on a cold start it could just be built up condensation. If its not condensation then it is a blown head gasket and should over heat .
