SOURCE: antifreeze/coolant leaking from under passenger side dash

If it's your heater core, unless you're a mechanic you probably should get professional help. The heater core is located on the firewall and many parts need to be replaced to get to it. Do you see water on the floor inside the vehicle, Many times a heater core will leak inside.

If it's in the passenger footwell then it's a broken heater matrix.

SOURCE: Saturn l300 leaking coolant out of passenger side of engine

Sounds like a water pump or radiator hose. Need to see exactly where the leak is coming from to confirm which.

I am getting water on the passenger side floorboard


Water or coolant? Coolant (if you have the correct 50/50 ratio of water and antifreeze) will have a distinctive smell.
If it's coolant that's getting on the passenger side floorboard, you probably have a leak in your heater core.
If it's water, it may be condensation from your a/c evaporator - there's a drain that should allow the condensate out of the HVAC box, but if it's plugged, the water will come inside. The other possibility if it's water is that there is a leak around a window seal, windshield, sunroof, possibly the door window.

2000 Dodge Durango water passenger side a lot of water in floor board.


Does the water smell like coolant? Are you losing any coolant from your radiator/reservoir? If so, you have a heater core leaking. It's a large job to replace, requiring removal of the dash.
If it doesn't smell like coolant, it may be that the drain tube from your a/c evaporator is plugged, and condensation is leaking into the passenger compartment. Look for the drain tube on the engine side of the firewall, in front of the passenger and down low. It should be a rubber tube that has nothing connected to it.
Other possibilities are leaking sealant around the windshield, bad weatherstripping around the doors, and leaks from sunroof (if you have one).

Leaks coolant under van down the frame rail on passenger side even on the outside of the passenger front door


The door is getting spray from the leak coming from the engine compartment. The easiest way to find the leak is to use a pressure testing device. Check with autoparts store see if you can rent one because they are not cheap.

Overheating


Was the coolant old and weak? At ten degrees, a weak coolant could result in freezing and that can cause an engine freeze plug to burst open. Check the side of the engine block for signs of leakage around the freeze plugs. Another possibility is the heater hoses. They run along the passenger side of the engine as well. The last possibility is the heater core. If it leaks you may smell coolant inside the passenger compartment. You MAY get a wet floorboard on the passenger side. Coolant leaking from the core usually will fall into the condensation pan for the A/C and run out of the passenger compartment thru the firewall on the passengers side.

Passenger side coolant leak


I'd have to see it in person to comment. The water pump is on the passenger side of the van.
A mechanic would fill the cooling system then pressure test it for leaks.

Water leaks on floor board of passenger and driver side


Most cars have the air conditioner drain on the passenger side just in front of the fire wall , if this becomes clogged it will back up and run out in the area you indicated. Look for the drain hose and make sure it is not kinked or plugged!

The problem you describe could be from condensation. On very humid days, I have seen some condensation from auto air conditioners blow through the ducts. If you run your A/C in the heat/defrost mode (it probably comes on by itself when you run the defroster), that could happen, and the water could be leaking down through the heater vent. It could be a sign that you're A/C unit is low on refrigerant, in which case, you'd need to get the system serviced.

A leaking door seal on the passenger's side could also cause that, but only if it was raining. If I assume that this is happening when it is not raining, the A/C is the only place water could be coming from. The only other, remote, possibility is windshield washer fluid, but you would probably notice that by its odor.

Hope helped (remember rated this help).

I have water on the floor on the passenger side of ny 98 town car and i don't know where it came from or how to prevent it from happening again


did you notice the water after a rain? or was it dry?

the weatherstripping around the door may be damaged. inspect for tears, missing sections, detatched sections, use a garden hose and spray aroun the door seal to see if there are any leaks. also spray around the window to see if that's leaking.

are you sure it's water and not engine coolant? the heater core may be leaking. it is located on the passenger side under the dash. is the coolant low?

there may be a hole in the floor

Heater takes to long to get hot and water is dripping form dashboaerd on passenger side i have a 2000 grand jeep cherokee


Sounds like one of two things are happening. Either the hose going to the heater core (on the engine side of the dash) is leaking causing coolant to spray into the passenger compartment or your heater core is leaking which is causing the dripping from the passenger side of the dash. This would also cause a loss of coolant in the engine which would cause the engine to overheat and not enough coolant to get to the heater core to supply heat to the passenger compartment. Check your coolant level (while engine is cold) and refill it with a 50/50 mix of coolant and water after you tighten the leaking hose or replace the heater core.Then start the engine and let it warm up to operating temperature. Again let it cool down and then top off the radiator with the 50/50 mix of coolant. Do not under any circumstances open the radiator cap while the engine is hot.

Uneven cold air from front dashboard vents


Well this is simple. You never should run out of refrigerant EVER. If you do, it is a leak. Not enough refrigerant causes uneven vent temperatures. You need to find and repair the leak. This can be done with a refrigerant detector or by using AC dye. I would not recommend doing this yourself, take it to a dealer. Good luck
