Water leak in 1995 Jeep Wrangler SE

After it rains heavily and I'm pulling out of my driveway I turn the wheel and water pours out from under the dash and soaks my feet! I've heard about a possible "firewall filter" that may be clogged but have not been able to find one. It is a considerable amount of water so I've ruled out the windshield....any ideas?

There is a drain for the vent air box under the hood on the firewall. Open the hood and look on the left side of the engine for a rubber tube hanging vertically from the firewall. This tube gets filled with crud (leaves, dirt, etc) and plugs up keeping the water from draining until you turn a corner and it spills over into the cab... on your feet. Been there done that.

The drain has a **** in the bottom- pull it up, squeeze it at the end and use a screwdriver or similar to clean the end out.

Forget windshields, firewall sealants, and all the other remedies suggested all over the internet for water leaks until you look at this- it's the cause 99.9% of the time

It turned out there is a hose under the hood on the passenger side that is open ended & pinched that drains the water from the vents on the hood to the ground. After awhile the debris ( leaves, dirt, etc.) clogs this up and water will back up inside the dash. I cleaned this hose & no more steamy Jeep! Thank god!!

Rain leaks


NO, it is most likely getting in through the cowl vent area under the wipers. Normally the water drains out the inner fender, but if its clogged with leaves and pine needles, it wont drain and will fill up past the cool air intake and get into the cabin. I would pull the cowl vent grille and make sure the drains are not clogged.

Leak under dashboard


The only fluids under the dash are coolant that circulates through the heater core, or if you have a manual transmission a failed clutch master cylinder can leak brake fluid under the dash right where clutch pedal is located. If the heater core is leaking, it usually shows up on the passenger side. If it is just plain water, you need to check how rain water could be getting in past the firewall and under the dash.

When it rains the drivers side floor board is wet. It is not leaking from the roof.


Hi,
it sounds like your windshield seal is perished.
Try pouring some water onto the windshield rubber seals from the outside and see if you can find the leak.
There are several commercial windshield rubber seal repair glues out there which you can use to fix it. Try an auto or hardware shop.
It is also possible that the water is coming thru the car body so try removing the plastic kick panels around the drivers foot area and have a good look for rust.
The worst case scenario is that there is a hole from possibly rust from under the area where the dashboard meets the top rear section of the engine bay area.
Cheers,
Steve

1995 Jeep YJ losing water but can't tell where. We never see any spots on driveway or on the engine. We let it sit and run for a while but still do not see any leaks. Have already replaced the top hose and...


If there are no outward signs of a leak - it is likely from a failed head gasket (or cracked head)... and the coolant is being burned up in the combustion process.

Do you notice white smoke on first start or on heavy acceleration? That is a good sign of water in the piston.

Thanks!

I have a 1995 jeep wrangler. 4 cl.2.5. Anyway its leaking underneath looks like lower hose has a hole afriend thinks it's my water pump i just see water coming down looks like from the clamp


Your friend is probably correct. The pump has a "weep hole" that leaks when the seals have failed. If tightening the clamp does nothing, replace the pump.

Water leak to floorboard on drivers side. Carpet wet all the time with standing water. My Jeep is a 2007 Wrangler/rubicon


It it happens when it is raining. This seems to be a common problem with Vehicles.

There is a seal on the passenger side Hood Hinge area. If this seal is cracked or broken or missing you will get water in the car every time it rains.
The water runs down the windshield in to the Hing area under the Hood.

You may need to take the hood off to get to the seal. First pour water over the area, if it comes in the car there is your problem.

You can seal it with any water proof silicone sealer .

I have a 1994 Jeep Wrangler. After it rains,


First make sure it's not antifreeze which I doubt it is considering it only happens when it rains, it is probaly a clogged drain hose for the vent chamber which is located at the base of the windshied,or it is a clogged drain for the a/c evaporator box, if you can find a small drain hose or orafice under vehicle toward the base of the fire wall under vehicle you could feed a length of wire up through to unplug it, a mud wasp is the usual suspect planting a egg and packing it with mud to seal the deal.
