Condensation


Formation of water resulting from temperature differences. The most commonly found types of condensation are the misting of car windows in cold weather and the film of moisture occurring on ignition leads. Condensation also occurs inside a car engine and exhaust system on a cold night when the hot engine cools and is made evident by water dribbling out of the exhaust pipe, or by steam when the engine is re-started. No corrective action is necessary.
