    Just noticed a bit of water dripping from my muffler. I’ve never seen it before, but the weather has gotten cooler in the past couple days. I know the water itself is probably just condensation, and I’m not concerned about that, but looking at it the water must be coming from inside the muffler, as there’s no water on the outside, and it’s actively dripping once a minute or so. So, there must be a tiny hole at the seam in the front of the muffler. Is that anything I should worry about? C0D48AA4-B2C9-47E6-9B46-4AF79A423E7A.jpeg

    The hole is there on purpose, so the water (condensation) can drip out and not rust your muffler from the inside out. It would also freeze in cold weather and possibly separate your muffler. Nothing to see here, go back to offroading..

    Byproduct of combustion - moisture.

    Thanks everyone! Like I said, I wasn't worried about the moisture so much as the hole in the muffler seam. Good to know it's supposed to be there!

    So you're telling me that I shouldn't worry at all when there's stuff weeping out of my hole? :confused:
