This happened to me. The problem is that the drain is clogged. Remove the wipers and the vents under the wipers. You will probably see a lot of dirt and dead leaves in there. use a shop vac to clean the area. Then find the drain hole. There are two of them, one on the left and one on the right both lead to a hose going down on the sides of the engine. Remove both hoses. Clean them out and also clean out the drain hole as well. I used a screw driver to clean them all out. Then with a water hose, pour some water through the hoses and drain hole with a very light pressure. You should see the water going through the drain hole and also see the water going through the hoses that go to the bottom along the sides of the engine. This has solved my problem. This usually happens when you park under trees a lot or the vents are not protected from debris. If in fact the vents do not have a screen on it, then just pick up a role of aluminum screen at Home Depot for under $10. Easily place the screen under the vents with very small screws or just use a staple gun and just cut off the remaining screen. Hope this helps you out. Good Luck!!

    Forgot to mention that you have to also remove the windshield sprayer hose. But don't forget to put it back on, as I did. I had to remove everything again just to put the hose back to get the sprayer working. LOL!!

My daughter's 2002 jeep liberty is leaking water from the engine. It appears to be coming from what looks like a drain in the engine. I can't find any reference for this drain-looking tube in the...

Well, it all sort-of depends on what tube you are talking about and what kind of water is coming out of it. If you are seeing plain, clear water coming out of a tube that is located on the right (passenger) side of the vehicle on or near the firewall, then YES, water is supposed to be coming out of it when she is running her air conditioner. This would be the drain tube for the air conditioner that lets the water drain under the vehicle so it does not fill the cabin up with water.
If it is not plain water, like antifreeze (GREEN or PINK), then, NO, this should not be happening and you should get it checked immediately.

The driver's side of the floor gets soaking wet when I run the air conditioner. What should I do?

When the air conditioner is running, it forms condensation in the heater box, which is located under the dash board and quite difficult to access. fortunately, you don't have to get in there. The heater box has a drain tube that drains the water out of the front of the fire wall.In the engine compartment,look on the passenger side ,down low on the firewall, for the drain tube. Sometimes it's hard to see, but look closely, its probably covered with the same sound deadening as the rest of the fire wall. You may be able to stick a wire or similar item up into the tube. If not, it will take air pressure from an air blower to blow it out. You'll know when it's free when water starts coming out.

The AC evaporator/core condensation drain tube is located on the passenger side of the fire-wall towards the bottom of the fire-wall, (it resembles a heater hose that is coming off from the fire-wall and it connects to nothing, and it is just to drain the AC condensation) and it is easily viewed from under the vehicle. Use long pipe cleaners folded in half to clean out the AC drain, and be very careful that the AC evaporator/core, or the heater core is not damaged from using any hard or sharp objects to clean out the AC drain.

Water leaks in the passanger side floor

there is a hose that runs from the condensor under the dash on the passenger side, if you pull the carpet back you can see it. there is then a hole in the fire wall that this hose fits into. That will allow it to drain out of the vehicle and not let your passenger get wet feet. i hope this was helpful.

it sounds like the drain hole for the condenser is clogged and the water is pooling up and overflowing out of the vent and spilling over onto the carpet. you need to un clog the drain hole. if you look behind the passange wheel and under neath the car you will see a black hose leading up and into your fire wall run a long semi flexible wire or like and un clog it do not jam it in to far or too hard you dont want to put a hole in the condencer but when you get through you will get a rush of water that should pour out
