Latest 2004 6.0 problems

Two new issues came up this past week, both odd to me..

1) Today i notice a good size puddle under my truck every where i stop. Turns out to be coming from the back lip of the muffler and is sooty water, but not positive.. I dont notice white smoke in the exhaust. Not sure why so much black water would be coming out of my muffler?? We have had no rain and its been rather dry here for some time. My only thought is maybe its normal to have all this moisture in there and i finally rusted a pinhole thru the muffler so now its leaking out?? Maybe it usually just blows out the tailpipe and i dont notice it?

2) On acceleration i notice a weird squeal/chirp sound from under the drivers side dash.. Hard to describe. Very odd sound. like vacuum related or something...

Ok that lil drip is normal condensate. Actually there is useually a 1/16 hole on the bottom side of the muffler for that to dain off, it may have become plugged with crud.

As for the noise it could be a split vacum line on the air box.
