Smoke coming from under the hood- '96 Sebring

The past couple of weeks my car has been running hot and when I put water in it the problem goes away. A puddle in my passenger side floorboard formed a couple days ago. Today my car shut off and the engine light immediately came on. I pulled it into a spot and there was smoke coming out from under the hood. The smoke smelled like burning oil. There is oil in the car but it looks watery maybe. Any ideas what might be the problem.

Smoke coming from the hood check engine light


Someone else's code may not help you as the light could come on for a number of reasons. Smoke under your hood could be due to a leak or leaks such as oil, coolant, power steering fluid and so on and as the engine gets hot the fluids will burn off on the hot engine or exhaust causing it to smoke. The smell when you turn the heat on could be because your heater core is leaking. This would be accompanied with low coolant levels, overheating and low heat especially at idle also the carpet may be wet. If your vehicle is equipped with a cabin air filter the smell could also come from there as leaves and other debris and sometimes even rodents can get in there. Also if you don't allow you evaporator to dry by shutting off the ac but letting the fan run for a couple of minutes the water on the evaporator can cause mold and mildew to grow giving you a funny smell as well. Hope this helps.

What causes wet passenger side floor in 2000 chrysler 300m?


Water.
You may have a rusted floor kicking up water, or a door seal may be leaking. check for both. In my 96 convertible it comes from the rocker panel filling up with water after a rain and it spills into the rear floorboards. It could be similar, although I don't see how a rocker can fill up like that in a hardtop. Check it out anyway, and run a coat hanger through the weep holes between the rocker and the floorboard where they are welded together They form a ridge on an angle like this: \\ on the lip and forms a small tube. This tube gets clogged with stuff and has to be routed out with that coat hanger from time to time. Eventually it will rust out and the problem will go away!!

Where is the a/c drain tube in a 2008 Chevy Malibu? Getting puddles of water only in the back passenger floorboard.


Hello,
This is a common problem with the 2008 malibu,the problem you are facing is as a result of the fact that the water actually goes out of the vehicle through the drain pipe, and then comes back in from the outside of the pipe,which is due to the turbulence of the air under the hood which actually pushes the water back along the outside of the tube, through the seal and back into the passenger side.

The solution is to apply a seam sealer to surround the outer part of the drain pipe.

Thank you for using fixya..

Air does not blow from my 2000 Grand Prix's air conditioner at all. The air went out temporarily one day and came back, but the next day it would not work at all. I have looked at the blower motor,...


If you look on the firewall on the passenger side there should be a drain hose for the A/C under the evaporator, these can get clogged over time and cause water to puddle on the floorboard. Just take a straightened out clothes hanger and push it up into the drain hose breaking up any blockage in there.


To replace the blower motor, take out carpet under glove box. look under glove box. there should be three screws to take out and then just pull out the old blower motor.

The passenger side floorboard gets wet =


is it only when the ac is on? there is a pan under the ac unit that has a hole in it to allow the condensation to empty. if that hole gets plugged it could cause the condensation to build up and back into the inside of that car. i unplugged mine and floor stayed dry

Water in floorboard after every rain. 95 Dakota


the windshield could be leaking behind the dash,a good way to check is put the fan of the heater on,hot or cold and get a solution of soapy water and apply to the outer edges of the windshield and look for bubbles.
