since i brought the car it has been dripping water from the exhast and steming but there are no signs of water in oil or oil in water and no ruff running, at start up there is a slight tap from the rocker cover , could this be the hydrolic tappets as it goes away after warm i have had the whole exhaust system off nd there is no water traped in it and replaced the center exhast as it has rusted through any ideas ? cheers

its more like steam and no just was a worry lol what do you think of the tapping noise it doesnt seem to speed up but gets a little quiter as it heats up then slowly disapears

When exhaust gasses mix with air they often create water due to the molecules in both mixing, so lots of cars seem to drip water from the exhaust

If the exhaust is very hot that water will then evaporate and turn to steam

Ok science lesson over for the day :)
