    water spraying out of exhaust?

    Hi... I just fitted an entirely new exhaust pipe to my manta, but a strange thing occurs when i start the car, a pretty big spray of water (oily?) comes out of the pipe.. 4 feet! it doesent smell like anything, is clear, and a bit oily (didn't taste it) i am using a led additive in the gas, and our gas isn't much good either, but i've never seen anything like it. could this be caused by bad valve seals?
    Thanks!

    Sven, water coming out of the exhaust is normally associated with a blown head gasket. But because you've just replaced the exhaust system, it could be nothing more than condensation in the new pipes. The oily residue could be from the oil coating inside the pipes to prevent rust during storage of the pipes. HTH.

    i have antifreeze in the system, shouldn't that cause white smoke if that was getting in the cylinder? i don't have any white smoke (a little at startup aparently) the exhaust is aluminium coated, all new from manifold on... i don't think that should rust... well as far as no other simptoms occur, i'll just ignore it then. thanks!
