I guess more info would have helped.... The condensation does collect
under the exhaust tailpipe; there is also a unique (to me) hissing
sound which comes from what I presume to be somewhere in the tailpipe.
The sound is consistent and does not seem like a leak. Could they be
related or are these things just normal?
