Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Not loosing coolant and not overheating, clear water coming out of tail pipe
Lincoln Mechanic: Ronnie, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

The water you are seeing is normal, its caused by condensation . Your engine exhaust is warm and the pipe is cold so you get moisture in the pipe and blows out and puddles on the ground during cold start.. You do not have a problem, its totally normal.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
