How'* your coolant level? Check it and get back to us. Could be the initial signs of a failed upper intake and/or failed lower intake gaskets.

there is one pipe coming off the engine to the back of the car then they split. which would mean...you should expect to see the same thing out both pipes.

Block off the one pipe and see if you get the same out the other pipe. If not..I'd think maybe a little moisture in the muffler and nothing to worry about.

Was the car warmed up and running good when you noticed this?

yes car was warmed, happens whenever i look at it, coolant level is normal, no visible leakage. someone told me could be moisture, could it be oxygen sensors or cat convertor??
