Weird stuff coming out exhaust

Hey,

I noticed a little while ago, that whilst my car was idling (Park or Drive) there is black liquid spitting out of the exhaust. They're small drops, but continuos and seem to dry like dust/coal.

Probably obvious what it is (but alas I have no idea!!) so what could it be? My only guess is that it's running rich (don't even ask me how I concluded that! LOL)

Cheers.

Mmm well I only just realised it now, so yes, when it's cold (cooler). I will check when it's warm.

Re: Weird stuff coming out exhaust

I meant when the engine is cold, not the weather.

Re: Weird stuff coming out exhaust

mine does the same,(when motor's cold) it would just be condensation and the carbon in the exhaust that builds up and drips out.

I realise what you meant If it's only condensation or something, does that mean you're saying that even from factory they would have done this?
