My nissan quest 95 is leaking water. It seems is coming from around the filter. Need help please

Dear Helen,
Which filter? You have the air filter, the oil filter, and the cabin filter.
If it is coming out near the air filter or the oil filter, I should suspect a leaking heater or radiator hose.
A pressure tester for the radiator will help you find those leaks.
If it is near the cabin filter, it should be the drain tube for the air conditioner condenser, which is normal to leak when the air conditioning is running.
Try to catch some of the water that is leaking and see which fluid it is.
Air conditioner condensation water is clear, it even looks drinkable.
Anti-freeze/coolant liquid is colored blue, green, red, or yellow, (it depends on the brand) and has a distinct sweet smell and taste. No, I am not recommending you should taste it.
God bless your efforts.

one way to find out if it is antifreeze put a little bit on your finger and taste yes it sounds gross but if it is sweet tasting it is antifreezeand that would leave out a coolant leak then go check out power steering leak it also could be the steering rack could have a leak good luck

I have a leak on left side front what could it be?

What kind of leak? Is it a clear liquid like water condinsation coming from the air conditioner?
Or is it grean or reddish like antifreeze? Is your water temp. lite coming on or gauge running hot?
Is it a dark thick liquid like oil or transmission fluid? Have you checked your oil level?
Tell us more about the leak, what does the fluid look like? Is it a lot like a puddle or little drips?
Need as much information as possible

There is a puddle in the floor of my 97 saturn, drivers side right in front of my trunk button. Someone said it might be a bad heater core?

There are two things is can be. If the liquid is clear, it is condensation from the A/C evaporator coil and the drain is stopped up. The coil has a drain that drains out under the car, that drain can get stopped up with road debris. Now if the liquid is colored and smells like anti freeze, you have a heater core leaking and it will have to be replaced.

MY 1996 buick skylark olympic edition leaks water on to the driver's side floor. I have replaced the heater core.Is it possible it is a hidden leak at the base of front window or under cowl trim of some...

Taste the water and if it is sweet it is coolant leaking from the heater core. If it does not taste sweet it is a leak somewhere else. What you suspect is very possible. Start by making sure the drain hose is clear an not clogged. Then check the window gasket. A water hose left running on the window slightly will tell you where the leak is coming from.
