Water coming out of exhaust

Hey guys kinda a weird question but when my trucks idling after a cold start it shoots out water outer outta the exhaust. It is a 89 s10 with a 93 sbc 350 TBI. Whats weird is tho after its been running it still does it.... Scared me beacuse I thought it coulda been raw gas but i smelt it (and tasted it) and concluded its not. Any thoughts?

It`s more than likely condensation. Is it running hot? Is coolant disappearing? does the oil appear milky? if not it`s condensation and nothing to worry about. I don`t recommend tasting anything that comes out of a exhaust pipe,, that`s not exactly healthy.

Haha ya i know. Just did a quick swipe with finger.... IT only runs hot if i let it sit idle for a long time with my twin fans not running.. and coolant wise i top it up when needed... and no milky oil.... If it was that would be head gasket wouldnt it? also when i took my rad cap off to top up the coolant the other day i wiped my finger on the rim underneath the cap and it was black like oil black.. Now that doesnt make sense beacuse the oil was not milky when i changed it the other day.....dirty but not milky
