    I DON’T THINK I WANT TO KNOW BUT

    Iv had my s4 b6 avant or several weeks now and iv noticed what seems to be a lot of condensation coming from the exhaust most of the time even when its been fully wormed up for an hour
    Now iv checked the oil filler cap and had no mayonnaise or steam coming out the oil filler cap and no evidence of oil in the water so where is it coming from
    Im not loosing water or oil

    This was asked by a 3.0 owner a week or so ago, and the consensus seemed to be that with no other symptoms it's just down the condensation from a large petrol engine in the cold damp air.

    Big f**k off V8 + twin pipes either side + cold damp air = plenty of steam

    To me whenever I see a lot of vapour (not smoke!) from the exhaust of a car in traffic, I know it'll be a big powerful engine. In summary: large engines .

    possibly the crank case breather? when you take the oil filler cap off is it making a sucking sound. just a thought hopefully nothing to worry about
