I have a 1997 pontiac bonneville i have a few issues. One is it just started getting soaked front and back passenger floor boards. Sonetimes will steam on window how do i check to see if its for sure

Check and see if your heater core is leaking. A leaking heater core will cause your windows to steam up and leak fluid on the floor. also cause every thing to get sticky a feeling if it continues to leak. Should repair ASAP. Needs to be replaced.

Water leak on drivers side in my 1999 Honda Civic DX Coupe

Go to the passenger side or driver side there you need to find the A/C drain tube make sure that it is draining outside and not in the compartment area.This drain hose tends to pop out, so when you have the A.C on you notice there is water draining out but in your case its going in thhe car.

Water leaks on passenger floor in my 97 honda civic

I have a 1997 Toyota Camry. Water was collecting on the front PASSENGER floor after a rain. I opened my sunroof and found the front drainage holes (about 1/8" diameter) in the corners of the track sunroof track. They looked clear. I poured a bottle of water in track and watched the result. Sure enough, water started dripping from the right ride of the glove box on to the floor. I started tearing out the interior panels to trace the leak. What I found is that if I poured the bottle of water REALLY slow into the sunroof hole = no leaks. But if I pour it too fast the small 1/8" hole cannot keep up and the track overflows! THAT is where the leak comes from in my car! If water overflows the track, then it makes its way down the column trim, around the glove box and on to the floor.

So I need to help the 1/8" sunroof hole drain faster. I took some 18AWG TFFN electrical wire and jammed it into the hole to help clean it out. I then removed the black plastic mud flap behind my front tire and blew out all of the leaves and rotted debris that where behind that flap. It was packed with junk! I poured more into the 1/8" hole and it seemed to drain quicker.

I hope this information helps others.

97 2.2L is leaking coolant, about a full tank every 5-7 days. Water pump and associated hoses look dry, can't find the source of the leak. Any suggestions?

sounds like a head gasket if no leaks are visible, but you must be sure. any wet floors especially the front passenger side if so could indicate heater core leak

Water leak on fwd and back passenger side after every rain storm

pull your carpet up near the leak area and look for muddy body seams. it is possible one of the factory body seams are leaking- possibly in the cowl(under wipers) area, especially if it leaks when the car is sitting. there will be dirt/mud around the seams that are leaking. also you can check door seals by running the car on HIGH DEFROST with all doors and windows closed. spray around with a 50/50 soapy water solution. obviously bubbles will form around your leak.

I have water leaking inside the car on the passanger side floor. It looks like its coming from the air ducks.

Was the air conditioning on? Usually water on the floor of the passenger side would mean the AirConditioners drainage hose was either clogged or became disconnected.
