    I knew it was from ac drain , needed to know where it is to clean it. As for the code I had it erased as it seems gas isnt worth the money we pay for it. I have had three cars this year get cleared for evap and find out its the cheap fuel it seems to everywhere.

SOURCE: Dodge stratus R/T 2002 antifreeze problem(antifreeze coming out the cap)

First the "service engine soon" light is a manufacturer installed reminder for you to get an oil change or other pre-determined maintenance service done. It is different than the "check engine" light which indicates a sensor malfunction. Secondly, when the engine is cold the thermostat is closed and the antifreeze or coolant is not circulating. The cooling system is a closed system and the tank that the cap is on is not an overflow tank but rather an expansion tank. This tank allows for the expanding coolant that is now hot to leave the engine coolant jackets, that won't expand, into a tank that can expand slightly. When your engine got to normal operating temp., aka.. hot, the thermostat opened allowing coolant to circulate and fill the expansion tank probably over flowing with the cap off. This is a normal operation for your car.

SOURCE: Water Leak UNDER the Vehicle.

It is definately your AC water outlet. The hose must have shifted sort of.

Rate this please

this happens alot on older vehicles most often times because the coolant hose shrink and expand around a fitting. try and tighten all coolant clamps. this often is all it takes to solve the problem. you should also look to see that all seals around heads of engine show no seepage

Bring the car into a repair shop and have them pressure test it for leaks or you can purchase a pressure tester make sure you get the appropriate adapter for your cars radiator filler neck or resovoir, and check for leaks yourself. Make sure the car is cold and there is the appropriate mixtiure of coolant and water in the system, prior to pressure testing. Also do a visual inspection of the cooling system when the vehicle is cold and look for leaks.

Small port hole under heatercore port dripping water does this mean my heatercore is leaking

If it is antifreeze... yes! If it is just water, it could be the A/C condensate drain is plugged. It should be under the hood on the firewall on the passengers side... a small rubber hose with a turn down. Pinch it to make sure it is open to drain.

Advice on heater /airconditioning system 2002 grand cheroke. leaking between firewall underneath glove box around foam rubber seal

is it leaking clear water or oily green antifreeze? clear water is the condensation from the a/c system leaking out where it shouldn't. the tube leading from the case to the engine compartment could be clogged, leaves and stuff have a way of finding themselves in there. could need the rubber grommet replaced, i believe there was a TSB around this model year for that very thing.
if its green oil antifreeze, your heater core is leaking. the dash needs to be removed for this fix

There is only one way the steam from the radiator could be coming in to the cab of the vehicle. That would be from the heater core, or the lines going to the heater core. If there is coolant/water leaking on that elbow on the firewall, it could either be that line that is leaking, or it could be leaking from the core and just dripping down to the elbow.

My 2004 Trailblazers AC condensation water is leaking inside on the passenger side instead of draining to outside the vehicle. I assume I have a plugged drain tube? Can anyone assist me in finding this...

if you look on the engine side of the firewall you will see a rubber tube on the passenger side of the vehicle bent at a 90 degree angle that is the drain tube. very carefully try to insert something stiff into tube to see if it is blocked

My 2003 olds alero reservoir leaks

Your cooling system needs to be pressure checked to see where the leak is. certain auto parts stores rent out a pressure checker. make sure you have the cooling system full before doing the pressure test. check to see if you have a radiator cap and fill the system that way instead of using the resevoir
