Nissan Rogue Water through exhaust pipe

Postby neeleshapatil » Tue Oct 13, 2020 12:18 pm

Hi
I am a new driver and don't know much about internal working of a car. I got the Nissan Rogue SV recently and observing that its discharging water through exhaust pipe when forgot to turn off ignition and car was in Parking mode. I am observing this now frequently whenever vehicle in parking mode but ignition not switched off. See attached picture

Is this normal and something I should be worry about it ? Please appreciate your inputs here.

Does Nissan local dealer can help to check and resolve any issues with transmission?

Moisture out the exhaust is normal, one of the products produced when combustion occurs.

It's likely just unburned fuel. Perfectly normal when an engine is running at idle. Especially so when first started and not yet at normal operating temp.

Don't sweat the small stuff.

No. Unburnt fuel is called gasoline, and doesn't come out the tailpipe. That would be an instant emissions failure and a huge environmental problem.

It's condensation, which happens when the pipes cool down and consolidate accrued humidity from the air. That's why there's typically a little weep hole in the muffler. When you restart the car, exhaust gases blow the accrued water out of the tailpipe.

But correct - Not a problem.
