Hi all! I have been having dirty water come out of my tailpipe for quite some time now and thought I would reach out to the forum to see if anyone might have any ideas as to how I can solve this problem. It's also dirtying my floor LOL!

Thanks in advance.

Condensation is normal, but if it’s dirty I’d imagine there’s rust or some sort of excessive carbon buildup in the tailpipes? Water only comes out after you start the van right?

Thanks Sam Circle for the fast reply. Yes the water comes out only when the van is started and unfortunately it splatters over my nice clean wall and floor LOL! I was wondering if there's something I could put in the gas or spray in the carburetter that would maybe coat and clean the system.

I don't think I've ever owned a vehicle that didn't do that.

Maybe I'll just plug the end of the pipe with a tennis ball LOL!

That's as good of an idea as painting your garage floor white.

I'd just put down a drip pan.


You hear the thunder of stampeding rhinos, elephants and tacky tigers
This town ain't big enough for the both of us
And it ain't me who's gonna leave
