Body leaks are very, very hard to pin point, mechanics usually want to go home when they ge one, but here is the way we track them down, if you feel the leak is from under the put a sprinkler hear under the car and turn it all full blast get inside and try to see where the leak is coming from, if the leak is from up top area then do the same thing, let the sprinkler rain on the car, as much water as possible, once you do find the leak get some body caulking or a can of spray under-seal and spray the leaking area, it is most likely a welded seem that is leaking. GOOD LUCK.

    I did not realize you meant a fuel leak, you must replace or repair the line, it is not safe to drive the car, what if the gas leak worsens and sprays onto the catalytic converter? boom a really serious fire, have a shop look at this right away.

Underneath my tahoe on driver side is a small leak,clear fluid what can it be ?


Maybe brake fluid. Under the hood on the drivers side is the brake fluid reservoir and the brake lines generally run from there, under the drivers side, to the rear brakes. The lid may be loose or a line may be leaking. Would help to have someone look under the vehicle while someone pushes the brake to see if fluid is dripping.

Gas leaks out on passenger side right under the driver side back door


fuel line leak-have to get it on a lift asap, it could be as easy as a split or dryed out rubber line or a rusted through metal fuel line-no matter what, you do not want to let this go long.

2002 suburban has leak in driver side rear floor. Cannot see where water would be coming from?


We had same--water on driver side rear floor (soaked!). Driver side front floor seemed dry until feeling UNDER rug, was slightly damp. We found the location of TWO leaks causing this.

Leak #1 was through the parking brake line/cable seal; Recaulked with silicone. Removed plastic trim on floor between floor and door to reveal metal channel filled with water.

Leak #2 was where the door meets the car, near the hinge. It was the accordian-looking tube housing the wiring for the door. The big, rubber, circular plug connecting it to the main part of the car had come loose and water ran down through that, into the SAME metal channel filled with water from leak #1; will seal with silicone.

Note: We found that the channel filled extensively near the front door, BUT the carpet edge from the floor near the rear seat was dipping into it, wicking it up to the rear floor. Also, upon acceleration, the water in the channel gushed toward the back, thus soaking the rear carpet.

These leaks were found by removing all plastic trim (covering edges of carpet by doors), then one of us pouring water into specific areas of the exterior of the vehicle, and the other one watching closely with a flashlight for any signs of dripping.

The Lines are simple if it's a 2.4 EFI the lines run on the driver side inner rail from the center top of fuel tank, and up the middle of the firewall to the injector rail or throttle body carburetor there is also one line that runs from the evap canister back to the tank and to the fuel system three lines total one is a return line the large line is the main fuel line and has the fuel filter mounted on it and is under the driver side door inside the frame rail.

Fuel filter


Under the car, follow the fuel line, it is a cannister style filter, round about 6 inches long. You will need special tools to release the fuel lines from the filter ends.

There is a water leak somewhere in my 98 toyota camry that leaks into my passenger side floor. There is no sun roof and no visible leaks from the windows or doors. Any thoughts? A/C leak maybe? water...


I am the original owner of camry xle 1998 with wet floors. In 2000 I had drivers side door seal leaking at welt. Removed old door seal and new weather strip on drivers side installed. The door panel was never wet, but wet at bottom of door where there are drain holes...slowly leaking under carpet.
In 2001 later water again. Coming from overflowing A/C evaporator-drain plugged/ tank full of debris. Removed evaporator, cleaned + drain cleaned.
In 2003, driver door seal against window rotted. Removed door panel and found leak at window belt molding at the mirror joint inside + out. Lots of mold under carpet needed to replace! Made a fuss at dealers for reacurring problem and they replaced the carpet for free.
