Default Fluid coming out from tailipipe

Im curious as to what it means when fluid is coming out from the tailpipe when I accelerate. My mom noticed it as she was following me while I took it down the block to the mechanic. If this is something I can fix then what should I do?

It is normal to have some fluid come out of the tail pipe....

as long as its clear, and isn't resembling smoke and smelling like coolant

It'* condensation. When I removed my muffler, I nearly got soaked in it because my muffler had alot in it.

What was it going to the mechanics for. The "fluid" is probably water (condensation). It goes away once the exgaust system gets hot.

Original cat, high flow muffler on this shot. Probably got the water from idling in the staging lane.
