    Default Emissions light/exhaust condensation

    Hi people, for the last 2 weeks my emissions light has been on/off at the moment it's off, been out in it this morning and the engine was up to running temp and there was a lot of condensation/steam coming from the exhaust (like you get on a cold morning). I've noticed this since the emissions light had been on. Any ideas what this could be?

    Only time I had a lot of steam coming out of the exhast was when the head gasket was on its way out. Was like driving a kettle lol

    Have you checked the coolant level (when the engine is cold)?
