2005 Scion xB rain water leaking into Passenger side floor board

Most likely cause is a leaky windshield seal. This can be caused normally by one of three things.
(1) Improperly installed windshield
(2) Rusting metal at seal location
(3) Overpressure blowout of the seal caused by excessively loud bass from audio system (happens more often than you may believe).

Re-sealing the windshield will solve the water problem once you determine the cause.

There is water leaking from the manifold of my 1996 gmc 1500 sierra cbx 4.3

Bad news, sounds like blown head gasket. Good news, sounds as though the blowout is from water journal out to manifold and not into oil journal or cylinder. A Chiltons/Haynes repair manual that covers your vehicle year/make/model will take you step by step to repair it. Though for most people this is a rather daunting task and taking it to a reputable repair shop may be the best alternative.

I would imagine its the head gasketbut what the *** I've never seen anything like the Gulf of Mexico coming out my radiator. i've got 146000 miles on my 91 22-REruns great no had exhaust leaks for...

Hi there

You're probably right about the head gasket.

When one fails it's just the nature of the beast that the blowout is between a cylinder and:
- another cylinder
- the coolant system
- the oiling sytems

BUT, the high pressure needed to cause a blowout is not found exclusively inside a cylinder.

During an over heat, the cooling system can generate enough pressure to blow the gasket by itself.

During the overheat situation you spoke of, the coolant flashed to steam, found the path of least restistance which probably ended up venting into the valves.

This would account for it running pretty much the same
This would account for the gulf in your radiator
This would account for the lack of smoke of any color
This would account for the condensation on the oil filler cap

Pull a valve cover. See if the oil looks like a milkshake.
Run a compression test on all cylinders

Sorry man

Even though the news isn't good, please take a moment to rate my response.

Lost indicators to front passengerside following a blowout no hazards changed fuse looking for help to find realay

If your indicators are working on nearside, then it's not the relay as the one relay does all. It's just switched after the relay to OS, NS and hazards.
I would think that a wire may of been cut when the blowout occured( I assume the blowout is on the problem side). So check the wires on that side and the bulbs.
