So I had mentioned in the transmission thread that I noticed my truck sounded funny and made vibrations when at certain rpm levels in certain gears. Well now that the weather is colder I was pulling out and noticed I have 2 water spots under my vehicle when I start it up. I looked under and there are two places I have condensation from the exhaust dripping out. One is up in the front between the wheels, I only saw water and no exhaust. The other is towards the middle passenger side, where I saw water puddling and exhaust fumes puffing out where the connections is made. I am guessing this would help explain the vibration as modified exhaust tones due to leaks in the system. See that attached pic, I have circled the area in question and although you can't see the exhaust fumes in the pic, you can see the water pooling. There is also discoloration on the exhaust which I believe is from this, hard to believe this was missed during my 150 (or whatever #) point inspection at my first oil change. This is one of many things on my list that are wrong with this vehicle.. I think I will start another thread indicated all of the minor annoyances I have had with this truck since I picked it up, just need to snap a few pics.. Definitely things you don't expect to see when you spend this much money. This is where the japs and the germans will always have the american car makers beat. Worst part is having to repeatedly bring it to the dealer and face the attitude that I am being a bother by complaining about things that should have been done right in the first place.
