Hi guys I'm kindly asking for advice in order to prevent expensive costs.

Xterra 3,3 2002
Last exhaust silencer spits water happens after every cold engine start.

Middle silencer also spits liquid
Happens only after longer ride and not often or after a few days not starting engine. Also not always.

There is no oil in coolant and engine oil and cap are clean,
No jacuzzi in coolant tank.
Car doesn't overheat
No white exhaust fumes
No big pressure moving from radiator cap
No missfire error found only knock sensor issue after computer test

I've found some yt video where these symptoms ar caused because of cracked exhaust manifold.

Thanks a lot for help and advice

Water out of the exhaust is common. If you make mostly short trips, that won't get the exhaust system warm enough to vaporize all of the moisture and it'll just collect.

Take a trip of at least 30 minutes, then try starting it when it has cooled down. You might see a lot less water and spitting.
