I think I might have an exhaust leak but I'm not sure, today I was walking to my car and noticed a small puddle prob 2x2 underneath the muffler, I looked up an intact it was slowly dripping. It was dripping right where the inlet goes into the muffler. I couldn't get under far enough but I'm quite sure the fuel rails run on the other side. I did smell the liquid and it smelt a bit like gas.
Any help would be appreciated..


Thanks

Exhaust will leak water as it condenses inside the exhaust pipes on cooler days.

If it proves to actually be gasoline, I would be looking at the fuel system, not the exhaust system. Gasoline will not go through your exhaust, it's probably more likely a leak in the fuel system.

may be a weep hole in the muffler to allow excess water to drain to prevent the muffler from rusting internally

yeah it was just water, i think it smelt that way cos it was in the school parking lot and I just stepped out of the weld shop, so my senses were not all there.

Thanks again though!
