Question about Cars & Trucks
The flooring in my apartment creaks very loudly. Was told is is the fireboard under the carpeting. How can I stop it ?
Hopefully by fire board" you actually mean 'floor board or sub-floor. Throughout the last century (and even prior to it), most sub floors where usually installed with nails and as a consequence, over time the nails are pried up with wear, creating the creaking sound you hear. today. In light of these issues sub-floors today are most often screwed down into the floor rafters with 2" to 3" screws. This is a difficult issue to resolve without redoing the floor or getting access through some of the spaces where the planks meet in order for you to make an insertion with a screw to make the improvement.

Your air conditioner water drain holes are blocked. Check the exit holes for water from the evaporator unit under the foot wells or dash unit. Through these holesor unblock these and the water will flow through to the outside

Hi, we also have a 2002 Toyota Rav4 and developed a leak in the front driver's side of the car. After much research, we discovered that the drain wells from our sun/moon roof were clogged. If you have one of these, I suggest that you open the sun roof and look carefully. You will notice some tiny little holes in front and in the rear of the sun/moon roof tracks. Over time, these become clogged with dust and debris. You need to find a long, sturdy piece of thin wire and run it down the holes. To test if you have properly unclogged these, take a small amount of water and pour it down the holes. You should see water coming out of the drain wells under the car around the rear of the front tires. Hope this helps.

look at the firewall on the engine side and you will see a small stub hose coming out on passenger side about even with the bottom of the heater box inside. that hose drains condensation from the ac...clear it out and you will have a dry floor. (unless heater core is leaking but you didn't mention any overheat or coolant loss so likely that's not a problem)

I think that I can help you. It sounds like your drain-tube is plugged up. Get in the passenger side, and pull the carpet back from under the glove box. Look for a black rubber pipe that goes from a black box, and pokes thru the firewall, on the passenger side. Remove the hose from the box, and have a container ready to catch water. If water comes out of the black box, your drain hose is plugged up. Clean out the clog, and you will be golden.
