    yes i did notice the water when i took off the sparkplug caps its probably from when i steam cleaned the engine when i bought it about 4 weeks ago, it hasnt been used a lot as i have a company car also ,but it has been fine till now.

    is it not coolant? water escapes into the cavity from the water jacket in the head. This is quite a common occurance
