Why is water dripping from firewall on both driver and passenger sides


If it is inside the car it may be the heater core. Is it coolant? You can check by the smell and you could also use a pice of white printer paper to see its color. Could also be a bad seal on the doors or condensation from the ac.

Check coolant in radiator. If it is low check for loose hoses on heater unit in car. Check that the ac unit drain is not blocked as it may not be coolant but water condensation from the ac unit not being able to drain outside

Water leaking coming down over four wheel drive unit


the condensation from the ac canister there is a little spout that comes out of the fire wall and when you use your ac or defrost the ac compresser will kick in to take out the moister in the air when using the defrost setting, the water or condensation that builds on the inside will drain out of the spout and thats probly what your seeing either that or u have a bad heater core.

What is the best way to replace a heater core on a 97 Mercury tracer? And where is it located?


This is for the 1.8L and the 1.9L engine:

1.8L & 1.9L Engines CAUTION NEVER open, service or drain the radiator or cooling system when hot; serious burns can occur from the steam and hot coolant. Also, when draining engine coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantities. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or is several years old.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. If equipped, disable the SRS system.
  2. Drain the cooling system.
  3. Disconnect the heater hoses at the firewall.
  4. Remove the instrument panel.
  5. Disconnect the mode selector and temperature control cables from the cams and retaining clips.
    1. Remove the necessary defroster duct screws and loosen the cap screw that secures the heater-to-blower clamp.
    2. Remove the three heater unit mounting nuts and disconnect the antenna lead from the retaining clip.
    3. Remove the heater unit.
    4. Remove the insulator and the four brace cap screws.
    5. Remove the brace.
    6. Remove the heater core from the heater unit.
  6. To install:
    1. Install the heater core into the heater unit.
    2. Install the brace.
    3. Install the brace cap screws and the insulator.
    4. Place the heater unit into position, then attach the defroster and floor ducting.
    5. Install the heater unit mounting nuts.
    6. Tighten the heater-to-blower clamp cap screw and install the defroster duct screws.
    7. Connect the antenna lead to the retaining clip.
    8. Install the instrument panel.
    9. Connect and adjust the mode selector and temperature control cables.
    10. Connect the heater hoses at the firewall.
    11. Fill the cooling system and connect the negative battery cable.
    12. Start the engine and check for leaks.
    13. Check the coolant level and fill as necessary.

A/c condensation leaking inside passenger floor


Sounds like your drain is pluged. The drain is on pass. Side on fire wall. More than likely will have to get under car to find it. Try shooting some compressed air into drain port

I see and smell coolant through the interior side vents and have noticed a coolant loss over the last several months, when the low coolant light comes on. I add coolant to the overflow tank which is temp...


There is a leakinside the passenger compartment in the heater core housing.

Could be the heater core or a hose connection to the core.
The coolant is exiting to the ground outside through the water drain tube attached to the bottom of the heater housing (normally, this drain tube will drain water that was condensed by the A/C).

A quick repair, if you don't need the heater for now:
Under the hood, re-route the heater hoses by connecting each hose end to each other with a 5/8 inch diameter hose connector (like splicing a garden hose).

Eventually, the heater core will need to be replaced.

Leaking water from front passenger side, under dashboard


It is either condensation water from the A/C unit that should go out a drain tube to the outside (only if A/C or Defrost is on) or a leaky heater core. If it is a heater core you can usually smell a coolant smell and the water will be warm and your windows will fog up inside. Heater core is more common. Joe ASE Master Tech

Replacing heater core


  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable, then drain the radiator.
CAUTION When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by the ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.
  1. Remove the heater hoses from the core. The top hose connects to the water pump and the lower hose goes to the thermostat housing.
  2. Remove the cables and all electrical connections from the heater and defroster assembly.
  3. Remove the nuts from the core case studs located on the firewall.
  4. From inside the car, remove the case-to-firewall mounting screws and also the heater and defroster assembly.
  5. Remove the retaining springs and core.
To install:
  1. Install the core and retaining spring, making sure the core-to-case sealer is in good shape.
  2. Install the heater and defroster assembly, then install and tighten the case-to-firewall mounting screws.
  3. Install the nuts to the core case studs on the firewall.
  4. Install the cables and engage all electrical connectors to the heater and defroster assembly.
  5. Engage the heater hoses to the core.
  6. Connect the negative battery cable, then refill the engine cooling system and check for leaks.
