    Water in Exhaust

    On my way home from school the other day I noticed my low coolant light was on. I checked the radiator when I got home and noticed it was about 1/4 low. I checked all the hoses. No leaks. Checked the oil. Couldn't see and water or bubbles. When I looked at the exhaust I noticed the whole inside of the tip was completely wet and there were a few drips of water on the ground. The car doesn't ever seem to smoke when I rev it, but it always seems like theres water in the exhaust pipes after the car has ran. (short or long trip) I'm guessing this isn't normal. I'm hoping that its like a bad head gasket or something, but I'm worried about a cracked block or head or something. I don't think its like humidity or anything becuase I live in Arizona.

    Heres a couple pics:

    About 10 minutes of sitting after a short (1mi) drive home from work:


    After letting car idle for about 2 min:


    About 2 min idle, then reving car (notice drips):

    looks like condensation to me....does it smell or taste sweet? My cars could fill a small swimming pool on some days with condensation. The GTO would have so much I could hear it gurgle in the mufflers.

    No it didn't taste sweet. I wasn't sure at the time if the redish orangeish stuff was supposed to taste sweet like green coolant.
