Why is your transmission fluid dripping from my Cadillac converter


Hi there.
Well its a hard one as it could be the hose from the radiator to gearbox leaking cause either cracked or loose connection either on radiator OR on pipe 1/2 way down above the converter
Start engine,run till you see a drip, stop engine check bottom of radiator connection pipe for leak if none check pipe down towards gearbox to find a crack.

Rain water leaking in drivers side vauxhall meriva


if this is a new shape meriva the problem is the wiper scuttle seal leaking water .it drips into the engine bay,onto the heater pipes and tracs into the cabin.Pour water onto the screen and look into the engine bay,just behind the engine and you will see it drip onto the heater pipes where they enter the bulkhead.It then tracs into the cabin and soaks the carpet.The problem is a foam seal on the scuttle panel when it should be a rubber one.One fix is to ensure that the seal where the heater pipes enter via the engine bay is dry and spray it and the pipes with underseal.Vauxhall are aware but dont have a solution?

Cant find dran for a.c


look along the firewall on the passenger side of the car maybe towards the middle a little bit,, you have to do this from under the car , and the drain hose is extremely hard to see under there, if you do locate it,, don't try and shoot air into the hose to remove a blockage, it will just compact the clog and make it nearly impossible to un block,, instead, you can use a wire coat hanger , ( tape the end with electrical tape so you don't puncture the hose, and move it up and down inside the tube,, there will be enough water in there to push the blockage out,, so be ready , its going to be wet fast!! work a little at a time going in farther each time,, you'll know when it clears

Water leak -- 2000 Ford Windstar


Look for tell tale signs under the bonnet such as brown trails. Do you find water loss when the car is standing still unused or only after having used it. Be methodical, the coolant follows a pretty basic circuits: Primary: engine, thermostat housing, top radiator hose, radiator, radiator bottom hose, water pump (has the drive/fan belt running around its pulley) Secondary: engine rear top pipe, heater matrix for the cabin, return pipe to heater solenoid valve ( allows water to circulate to the heater matrix when you demand heat inside the car), return pipe to the water pump. If you find there is water loss irrespective as to the use of the car the fault should be easy to trace because it means that obvious drips should be forming or puddles created in the car. Note that many leaks in the coolant system only begin to show themselves when the engine is hot. The reason for this is that the coolant system in creases in pressure Checks 1) the coolant filler cap is on securely and that it has a good seal - if this leaks the coolant system fails to pressurize and the engine heat will evaporate the coolant or even steam off. 2) The water/coolant pump is common to both circuits and is worked hard. I always start here; if nothing else just to rule it out as it is a fairly expensive part to replace and the replacement procedure is involved. Check the interior of the engine bay for any sign of splash stains on a line perpendicular to the fan blade rotation. If the front seal on the water pump is leaking it dribbles water onto the pump pulley. When the engine is running this water is spread around in an arc like a garden sprinkler by the pulley and fan rotation. If no apparent engine bay stains are apparent look at the 'chin' of the pump for a vertical drip stain. A slow leak here can occur when the engine is running but the heat of the engine causes almost instantaneous evaporation of the evidence. During engine 'warm up' the water leak will leave evidence of itself as a vertical line of brown running down from the pump centre. 3) Having ruled out the pump another quick check, open the oil filler cap. An abundance of 'mayonnaise' on the underside of the cap and around the entrance to the oil filler means an internal water leak and this will require a cylinder head gasket renewal. ouch! 4) Check the radiator for stains front and back, even a tiny pin hole will leave evidence. 5) check that all the hoses are good and that there are no leaks where they are attach and that all jubilee clips are tight and intact. 6) Check the foot-wells of the car for wet carpets - a sure sign that either the heater matrix or the tubes attached to it are leaking behind the dash board is a soggy carpet. Dab a paper kitchen towel to the dashboard under side to locate the leak 7) Again check all the hoses and connections thereof for leaks. 8) Now a final check. The engine must be cold before you start this!!! Remove the coolant filler cap and top up the coolant to the normal level. Start the engine. Does the water in the coolant filler tank behave really violently and try to bubble out of the filler entrance. If so there is leak into one of the cylinders. This is frequently accompanied by very thick white exhaust gases as a result of steam and burnt glycol antifreeze. The only fix here is to renew the head gasket. If there is still no sign go over the list again but more thoroughly.. the water has to getting out somewhere. If all else fails take it to your garage and have them pressure test your system. Lack of pressure in the system and leaks are synonymous.

Ford Fiesta 2003 1.3 If I run the aircon water leaks onto the floor of the drivers side (by the pedals, alot of water.


In the dashboard,set down low is a driptray.It collects water that comes off the aircon.It has a hose (sometimes 2) that drains the water out of the car via the firewall so it drips onto the road.This is blocked or the tray has a buildup of gunk.The hose is about 1/2 inch thick.If you lay on the floor where it leaks with a torch you should find it.Or look in the engine bay,just to the left or right of centre(which side leaks?)and backtrace it into the car.You may find the inside hose has fallen off allowing the water to drip inside.Hope this helps you
