Question about 2000 Lincoln Town Car
Intermittent - only happens when it rains but not everytime it rains.
door and window seals appear intact and clean
seems to come in the right front air intake
there is a significant delay between when rain starts and leakage appears. Seems to be ponding somewhere and then overflowing. is there a drain line or something that can get blocked?
sometimes I get a trickle and it stops, but sometimes I end up with an inch of water on the floor, front & back right side
Open the hood and on the right side near the firewall you'll see the fresh air intake for the climate control system (heating and ac). Locate the grate which is about the size of a loaf of bread and has fins which run up to the bottom of the windshield. You'll find a foam seal which has deteriorated and will let water into the ac system if it blown in just right. Remove the crappy seal and caulk one side with a thick bead of silicon replace the grate and if you broke the connectors just glue them back with silicon also, use some masking tape to hold it down until the silicon sets. Guaranteed that's where your leak is.

Yes take it to the lincoln dealer.. there is always gonna be a leak in the gasket on the right side under the hood and on the same passenger side of the back door.. they look fine but they are not.. reseal these gaskets with caulking or some kind of glue..also i had the evaporator core for my ac drained also.. that was never the problem..its alwaqys a damn gasket on these cars..always.. carwash and rain will do it everytime..

Need to turn the A/C on and see if there is water dripping underneath the car on the passanger side if not put the car on ramps and get a metal coat hanger and gentley unplug the hose because what you are telling me it sounds like your evaporator is not draining
