Looked under the car today after a drive, there is a good leak coming from the cat. Looks like clear liquid. Not sure what it may be. But would like to know.

Did you smell it? It's probably either oil or trans fluid.

clear? oil and tranny fluid is not clear and i dont see how trans fluid can reach the cat

water is known to stand in the exhaust, which is why you see water dripping out of some exhausts.....and also during the cold days white smokes comes out while the car is warming up because its burning up the water

Make sure all of the bolts around the cat didn't come loose, vibration can cause this. and the water could just be leaking out of the cat instead of all the way back at the exhause because there is a small leak. make sure everything is snug, and if i recall correctly isn't there a small gasket on the cat? make sure it's not torn.

I have a feeling it's just water. I do have a leak there. I just wanted to make sure it was nothing serious.

I've had trans fluid fly all the way to the back of the car. It flys off the flywheel.

And my oil that I run is almost clear.

But it's prob just water. Have u ran the ac? There's a hose right beside the cat that let's out the fluid after running the ac.

You're all wrong.

Its VTEC fluid. You've been living your life one too many 1/4 miles at a time.

On a side note Rob, if you're not doing anything Saturday, Josh is coming by and we're going to re-do his dump tube if you want to swing by, pick up your VC, burn some steel and drink a couple beers.

Scorch me with the fire of your enthusiasm....

I'll PM my address to you. Easy to get to from Bragg if you head out the Longstreet gate.
