is it normal for my exhaust to spit out water/some sort of liquid? after a minute or so of starting the truck, ill see a pile of light water/liquid. i checked the radiator and coolant and they're still good. is it a good thing to do a radiator flush? iono, i might have to do that and replace the coolantt this weekend. any ideas? thanks

It's just condensation from your manifold/exhaust system (correct me on the location) but it's very normal. My truck does the same thing.

as long as it goes away after a few minutes and your exhaust does not make steam it is normal. it has something to do with your catalytic converter.

That moisture you see is the very reason exhaust systems rust our quickly when vehicles are driven for short around town trips. You get that several times a day.
On the Freeway, driving for hours, the moisture is removed once at start up and does not come back again until start up for the next day's long run.
