    I have the same problem in my car a '93 ford escort...but here is where my problem gets so much car has blown 3 heatercores in 2.5 years i have had it...the heater works just fine but i get a lot of liquid inside. a former ford mechanic at the local firestone told me its a pressure problem common to fords...well we will see.... and let me tell you it is a BIG pain to replace the core in my car. Everything inside that you look at after you sit down has to be removed (console, dash, heater controlls, radio, stearing mearly neads to be dropped or unbolted). it takes me 8-10 hours to do it. I am not a pro but i do all my own work. This time i am gonna drop my car off at a radiator place and have it checked over and tested after i replace the core. if anyone knows why my core's blow out so fast please tell me.

Looking for the air conditioning drain it is leaking inside the car and making the floor wet

It should be a black short hose coming out of the fire wall kind of low on the passenger side or middle way. Sometimes they get clogged.

Your power brake booster has gone bad, wont hold vacum the seal has gone bad, thats why you hear air and brake pedal is hard, booster sit under hood on drivers side fire wall, master cylinder bolts up to it, replacement is the only fix, unit can not be repair.

The passenger side floor of my 93 accord is wet. It is not antifreeze and I don't use the air conditioning.

look under the car there are plugs located in the floor look to see if the plug has rotted , the ac condenser still condenses water even if it is not turned on check to see if the drain on the fire wall(located on the fire wall passenger side towards the bottom)is plugged with mud or debris, if it is not plugged the heater/ac unit shell may be cracked allowing water to seep, also check around the front window for leaks.

2005 cobalt leak @heater core cover under dash

if you have air condition,check in the engine compartment on the fire wall under the air condition for a drain hose it may be blocked and that is causing the water to backup and leak inside the car.

Radiator fluid leak

Do this test, bypass your heater core by removing both hoses and connect them together with a small threaded pipe coupling and then worm gear clamp them on to the coupling. Be sure to mark one of then with a tye wrap so you will know if its top/bottom/left or right. Then run it a few days and routinely check for leaks if there are'nt any more leaks then you either had a small hair line tear or crevice corrosion at one of the hoses at the fire wall or there is a small leak just inside the fire wall on the heater core. When reinstalling the hoses cut a 1/4 of a inch off of them and then reinstall and recheck for the leak. If you still see it then its internal then there is the real pain of changing the heater core. Good Luck :?) DRRXR
