It's condensation forming in the exhaust system when it cools. If you start it and just let sit there and idle it will blow the condensation out the tailpipe.

Yes, you would know for shure if it was something major like a coolant leek. Such as the green tint of the fluid.

I don't know about any tinting to the fluid coming out the tail pipe, but when you have a coolant system that is leaking into the combustion system (i.e.: leaking/ blown head gasket) the water, or vapors coming out of the tail pipe continue after you have started it. They tend to be worse when under load. (heh...he said 'load')

Today, the temp went high, so I stopped, let it cool down, opened the cap and the radiator was very low. I added 1 bucket full of water and everything seemed OK. I drove for an hour back home checking the temp gauge and it was ok. I stopped for a 10-15 minutes, when I started the truck again, water was leaking(fast drip) from somewhere behind the front passenger wheel and from the tail pipe ??? HELP !!!

If you have water leaking under the hood and coming
out the pipe it's a head gasket.

Water near front passenger wheel could be unrelated, could be the A/C condensation drain.

Bob's right. Water near the front passenger wheel is from the A/C condesation. That water is cold, clear, and has no smell.

Water from the tail pipe can be from internal engine leaking. Are you adding water on a continual basis or was this the 1st time? If it was the 1st time, I would monitor it closely just to see what it does.

Has anti-freeze been changed or added to in the last couple of years? There may be nothing really wrong and it just got low over time and it finally showed itself. Did you get into heavy traffic?

pssst is apparently here only to insult people.

For real help, go to Allpar.com, where they don't allow this, or spam, only friendly help.

To answer your question, pssst, he could also have a coolant leak or a head gasket leak. The water at the passenger wheel, however, could be unrelated, could be the A/C condensation. He could have two separate problems. You seem to have many more than that.
