Question about 2002 Saturn L-Series

Water on front and rear passenger floor board, a lot of water

I checked the HVAC plug and it's okay. I ran the a/c and heater and see no new water. I only found a lot of water after it rained hard. All the door seals and windshield seem to be okay. I have a sun roof and no leaks there. Only the rt front and rear floor boards wet and I am wondering where the heck the water is coming from, and the windows were all up. I need help?

You can test again the car by putting a garden hose at the front of the windshield where it is supposed to **** fresh air. if you have a rusted part there and water could sipped in.

another option would be the recycle door of the airconditioning could be partly open ang letting the water come inside the car..

tnx 4 using fixya,

Hi I have a 2005 chevy uplander ls had heater core flushed ever since its a nightmare it ran good for a week lots of heat . Them bam it over heats just on gage no steam bleed air then good again changed...


more than likely there is a leak in heater coil. check your front passenger floor board to see if it is wet. if so the coil will need to be replaced. also take the two heater hoses off of the back firewall under windshield and run water thru the two pipes and try to flush it out.

A/c leaking water passenger floor


Usually a sign of a plugged drain tube.
The HVAC box has a tube that drains the water onto the ground.
The tube should be at the bottom of the firewall near the passenger floor.

I have lots of water on passfloor carpet soaked 1996 jeep gc 4x4 what can it be


I'm not sure where the drain hose is but its lower than the floor.
There should be a hose or tube sticking out of the floor or the firewall on the passenger side that drains the ac evaporator.
If the tube is clear, the bottom of the HVAC housing could be blocked.

Test heater core


Robert,
Using a cooling system pressure test tool to pressurize the entire cooling system, a heater core will leak into the HVAC [heater, ventilation and air conditioning] box [located under the dash board]. Once coolant leaks into this box, it will either drop onto the carpeting on the passenger side front floor OR drip out the condensate tube [where the A/C condensate water leaks out under the truck] The condensate tube is a rubber pipe located on the lower end of the passenger side firewall.
Leakage into the passenger carpet [most common place for it to leak] will appear as a wet carpet.
If heater core replacement is required, do yourself a favor. Buy and install a new A/C evaporator [located in the HVAC box with the heater core] at the same time. This is a big job to do. No sense replacing the heater core now, only to have the A/C evaporator fail next summer, forcing you to repeat all that labor [8 hours for a pro mechanic who knows what he is doing].

Bulletin No.: 03-01-39-011B
Date: November 22, 2005
TECHNICAL
Subject:
Water Leaks Into Passenger Compartment Through HVAC Module Condensate Drain Tube When Parked on Incline/Uphill Position (Install Auxiliary Drain Tube Extension)
Models:
2003-2006 Saturn ION Sedans and Coupes
Supercede:
This bulletin is being revised to include the 2005 and 2006 model years. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 03-01-39-011A (Section 01 - HVAC).
Condition
When vehicle is parked on an incline with the front end up during a rainstorm or when driving uphill during a rainstorm, water may leak into the passenger compartment through the condensate drain tube opening of the HVAC module.
Cause
Water may drain out of the cowl drain, then drain down the front of the dash panel in the engine compartment and seep into the HVAC module condensate drain tube opening. The water then collects in the heater core cover and upon acceleration may leak into the passenger compartment through the heater core cover seams.
Correction 1. Open the hood and locate the HVAC module condensate drain tube in the engine compartment on the right side of the dash panel.
Important: During installation of the auxiliary drain tube, do not make contact with the HVAC module foam gasket located at the base of the HVAC module condensate drain tube. If the auxiliary drain tube is pushed on too far and makes contact with the foam gasket, water may leak into the passenger compartment.
2. Slide the auxiliary drain tube onto the HVAC module condensate drain tube and make sure that the auxiliary drain tube is angled downwards after installation.cansmo_121.gifcansmo_122.gif

Your air conditioner water drain holes are blocked. Check the exit holes for water from the evaporator unit under the foot wells or dash unit. Through these holesor unblock these and the water will flow through to the outside
