2000 F250SD V-10 is collecting water somewhere behind the dash forward of the firewall. When the deck angle of the truck changes the water drains into the passenger side floor. Sloshing water can be heard when turning corners. I suspect a rain water drain is plugged somewhere but cannot locate it.

The only fluids under the dash are coolant that circulates through the heater core, or if you have a manual transmission a failed clutch master cylinder can leak brake fluid under the dash right where clutch pedal is located. If the heater core is leaking, it usually shows up on the passenger side. If it is just plain water, you need to check how rain water could be getting in past the firewall and under the dash.
Only 2 things this can be. The air conditioner drain is plugged, or the heater core is leaking. If the water smells loke antifreeze then the heater core is leaking and needs replaced, if no smell then the AC drain is plugged. You can acces this from und3er the vehichle, should be a small tube near the firewall to drain outside the cab, just runn a wire up in it and see if something comes out like moldy water!
The ac box is filling up with condensation.The drain ,is under the firewall,under the ac lines going inside the vehicle.Take a small diameter wire,and run it in the drain,back,and forth,until it clears,it will run out like a water fall,so look out.If this doesn`t work,then use compressed air to blow in the drain.
You can see it by opening the hood and looking towards the back firewall.
Its a short black drain hose and will have a good rust spot under it.
To see it in the car you need to remove you dash. Lower your dash. Remove the screw on
the right side and you can pull your dash out. The drain hose is
located in the upper left side near the center hub and right near the
engine firewall. Its a 6 inch black hose with a few bends and stubs
out through a hole into the engine compartment. You can easily pull it
out. and stick a short screwdriver up into the drain pan to clean it
Your definitley on the right track,it maybe the actual heater as most heater hoses end at the firewall so the leak must be on the inside of the firewall. If you cant spot the leak from the engine bay side you may have to remove the dash, hope this helps.
well if you have water or coolant leaking on to the rug in your car, first you must remember that every car has 2 radiators. One for the Engine which is in the front of your car under the hood and one for your heater, which is usually hidden deep behind the dash inside of your car. So if you are leaking fluids on to the rug in the car; Im 90% sure its going to be something dealing with the heater radiator. What you have to do is find out where your heater radiator is on your car and check all the hoses.
