Postby bscoffey [OP] » March 1st 2009, 2:10am

i have excessive water coming from the tail pipe.i know its condesation because there is no coolant smell. also i took out the o2 sensors and no smell there either.plugs look normal also.even when the temp is 60 or above i still have water.is this normal? the muffler is the original one :think:

When the converter is working right, it creates water out of the conversion process.

Yes and no. Converters can still work but be partially clogged and created unnecessary back pressure in your exhaust system.
