Question type: Maintenance & Repair

water dripping from seam and another "muffler looking part"  further down the line of the system. It is also leaking more than normal from the tailpipe.  What should I expect from repair shop, B/C I don't want to get ripped off, but I want to make sure it gets repaired properly.

It sound like it is only condensation being developed from the hot exhaust and the cool air. As you drive and warm everything up is will go away.


The leaking is probably just condensation from the exhaust but if it smells like coolant then you probably have a leaking head gasket. Muffler repairs are not all that expensive. Shop around for the best price if you are on a budget.


This is a normal condition.


There are two main components to exhaust gases - water vapor and carbon dioxide.
