    I have noticed that after I drive my truck with the AC on, once the vehicle is parked, I hear water dripping into a really hot surface (psssss, pssss, .........)

    I opened the hood and saw that in the firewall on the passenger side there is a small drain tube and there is water coming out of it and landing in the exhaust pipe, just past the manifold.

    I bought this truck used, I wonder if I am missing a piece of hose the it is connected to the small tube to avoid this. I will try to post a picture soon.

    Thanks guys

    I just bought mine 5 days ago and I noticed the exact same thing. If i find any answers i'll let you know. its probably just a condensation issue.

    Its the AC condensation dripping onto the exhaust. No biggie. You can attach a tube to it, and run it away from the exhaust if you want.

    That is what I thought, but I was wondering if a piece of hose was missing, I guess I will attach a piece of hose to re-route the water.

    yep its normal for the condensation but seems like a routing issue. use a larger hose over the top not a smaller one inside the existing tube. its 0 pressure so you don't want to clog it or you will have it on the floorboard inside.

    you could just turn it so it lands on your frame. Thats what I had to do when installing my headers.
