water dripping from the exhaust

Post by peekatu on Sun Sep 28, 2014 12:04 pm

Hi , I have a daihatsu hijet 2003 efi duel fuel van . It over heated today on a short trip when i let it cool down i topped up the radiator with water and anti freeze, let it run again looked for leaks waited for the fan to kick in . Then found there was water dripping from the exhaust what could that be ? ..I checked it when it was running and the exhaust was dry but after the fan kicked in it was dripping . I smelt the water to see if i could smell anti freeze but couldn't ANY IDEAS ?


Thanks

Personally, I wouldn't bother with the K-seal.  It might work (I tried it in a Rover V8 once, didn't work...) or it might well block up your rad.  You might want to watch this video before you add the stuff to the coolant:

Every exhaust emits water, that is why they rust so bad.
