Kia amanti passenger footwell floods after rain

I've taken the vehicle to a mechanic. Determined it is not the heater core, and upon inspection they could not find a place where it would be leaking as the everything seemed dry. I don't know what to do. I live in Portland, Oregon where it's currently raining extremely heavy and by the end of day the passenger footwell will be entirely soaked in water. It's coming down the back of the firewall, but from where???

one of the pulleys could be off . if you had them tightened, waste of money, it has an automatic tensioner which keeps the belts where they need to be.

Coolant dripping in the passenger footwell

Generally speaking, the only thing inside the passenger compartment that involves coolant is the heater core. And the heater core is on the passenger side behind the glove compartment.

Water passenger footwell

Water in the passenger foot well, or coolant? Press a paper towel to the floor and see if the water is green. If so, then you have a leaking heater core. A heater core is pretty cheap, but the labor or installing one is pretty intense.

If it's just water then do you notice this more after it rains? If so, then it could mean the drainage system for your cowl is clogged and is causing it to back up into the vehicle.

Your car probably has AC so the box under the hood has a drain for removed moisture and this can often clog with environmental debris; when that happens, the water can't drain any more and may end up inside the car.

Leaks on inside Toyota Corrolla on the passenger side

It could be water condensing from the A/C and dripping onto the passenger rug. Check under the passenger side dashboard, above the footwell, for the drain pipe from the A/C. If it's loose the water may leak into the footwell when the A/C is running. Should be reasonably easy to fix.
