My battery died on me last nite when I was making a couple of short trips. I got 2 jumps to get home, it was 8 degrees here last nite. I noticed that I was dripping water out of the tailpipe, which has never happened before. My neighbors believes its condensation from cold weather and shrt trips. But I also read that it could be sign of head gasket going. I checked all of my fluids this morning and there fine.

Have the battery and the alternator checked first. The battery may have froze and that is death for a battery.

Start there

Roy, plan on getting over to autozone first thing for battery. It's the original so very old. My main concern was the water that came out of exhaust during this. Should I not be more worried than I am.

Yes, it needs to be checked but lets get it running first. If it is clear water, I am not concerned, if it is coolant then we need to be concerned.

Thanks Roy, what came out was clear and had no smell. Radiator level full. Once get new battery should I go for a drive to warm it up or send you a mess. Thanks
