I had a similar problem. Water came gushing on passenger side under dash, near front console.

Turns out my drain pan condensate tube from the A/C was plugged. I went under right front of car behind engine, about where your passenger feet rest and up againts the floorboard was a little black rubber plug. I flicked it w/my finger and some goop came out and about a quart of water. Solved my problem.

The water coming in is because your heater core went bad and when they go bad they leak in to the car so you will need to have it replaced

It sure sounds like the heater core, especially if you have water leaking inside the cabin. The two heater hoses only go from the engine to the firewall, and do not go into or through the firewall. They connect to the heater core right at the firewall.
Check carefully around the back side of the engine and the heater hoses, though. If a freeze plug is leaking, water will be dripping off the bottom of the engine. If it is leaking before the firewall, that would not be the heater core.

Oldsmobile aurora keeps overheating i smell anti freeze and have to keep adding more but no signs of leaks i have had many repairs to solve the problem it always comes back or never leaaves


The water is leaving somewhere, either leaking out, going into the oil, or going into the exhaust. I would add a bottle of Bar's Stop Leak first. Usually if you smell the antifreeze it indicates a pretty good sized leak. I have had very good results with Bar's.
Check the carpet in the front by the firewall, between the drivers and passengers side. When the heater core leaks you usually get a wet carpet. This would be a fairly inexpensive repair relative to you other options.

Water standing on passagers side, drove about 50 miles low coolant light came on running fine and heater seems to be working


The problem is that the heater core has started to leak. The 'water' on the passenger side floor is actually coolant that is leaking from the heater core (hence the low coolant light).

Water in drivers side footwells front & rear


What about a leaking heater core... If the defroster is on and your winshield fogs up temporarily when the car is first started, that is a good indication of a heater core thats leaking water inside the car... Have that checked, Im guessing its your problem..

Heat come through onl on passenger side


Look for a hole or opening in the fire wall from under the hood.
Wire harnesses, AC lines and heater hoses usually have a grommet that closes off the air leak where they come into the passenger compartment. One may have rotted or simply pulled out. If pulled out, work it back in.
If you can get under the dash with the seat pushed all the way back, you can put a drop light under the hood, get under the dash and look for the light coming in. If you see anything.....PLUG IT!! :-)

My 96 aurora keeps overheating and I already changed a leak I had in my heater hose. I believe the leak is coming from the left passenger side probably front or mid front.


It could be a faulty thermostate or a bad water pump. Water pump is on the passneger side where the fan belts are. Good luck

If you notice a 'sweet' smell, or windows tend to fog up, it's your cars heater core leaking. The heater core is located under the dash, passenger side, it's like a mini radiator. The cars cooling system directs hot coolant to it so you can have heat. To change it is an involved procedure.
If there is no evidence of the anti-freeze smell or windows fogging up, and u have been using your air conditioner, it would be a blockage in the drain tube from the a/c. The end of the tube is located under the car on the passenger side , behind the front wheel. The blockage needs to be removed, and will solve the problem. Let me know what u find Curt

Water leak on the passenger side


were at on the passenger side? If its in the front floorboard,passengers side.the heater core may be leaking antifreeze.Also the a/c drain it also located in the same area.check your antifreeze,if not low,drive for a few miles with a/c on,stop on dry level place.there should be water dripping under passengers front.that is were the a/c drain is supposed to be.
