Question about 2000 Ford F250 Super Duty Crew Cabs

1 Answer

Water in the cab from under dash passenger side

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.

    Spent long time on the creeper trying to find the drain. No luck. How would rain water get into the A/C plenum?

The condensation drain is plugged in the heater/AC plenum, the drain is under the hood at the very bottom of the firewall on the passenger side.
PLEASE RATE THIS INFO

    Rain water doesn't ge into the drain, condenstaion from the ac evaporator core does, frost forms on this core whenevere the ac or defrost is on, it drains into the heater case, that's why there is a drain, I am a Ford dealer technician and I have cleared many of these drains in trucks like yours, I gave you the exactly the right info to repair your problem, you gave me a THANKS FOR TRYING, Check again, it is a very short tube 1/2" in diameter, you may be able to see it at the bottom of the air box inside the truck on the passenger side.

Leak under dashboard


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.

Where is the drain line for the air conditioner for a 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue?


Sounds like a classic example.
The drain hose or tube should be near the bottom of the firewall where it meets the floor on the passenger side.

Water leaking under dash on the passengers side of 2000 xterra


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!

You need to clean the drain out as your first step. This is accessed by raising the vehicle on a lift then using something like a coat hanger pressed into the drain hole at the base of the firewall next to the transmission bellhousing on the passenger half of the vehicle.

Since I purchased my 2000 GMC Yukon XL 1500 we have had a water leak that soaks the drivers side floor and passenger floor behind the drivers seat. I took it to my GMC dealer and they had it two days and...


You may be right about the sun roof. It should have 4 tubes to drain water that comes in around the glass. Sometimes the tubes fall off letting the water come into the cabin. The horn may be the part in the wheel. Apply it at different angles and it might start working. Sometimes they get rusty. I think your cabin filter would be under the hood near the firewall on the passenger side with a plastic cover.

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.
