H2o is a byproduct of combustion. When the exhaust system is hot it goes out the tailpipe as steam. When first started cold the cold exhaust system condenses steam back to water until the exhaust system heats up. When a hot exhaust system is shut down cooling converts steam to water which collects in the exhaust system low spots.
