After a recent rain the passenger side floor of my 1997 ford escort is wet. it seems to have come from the heating/cooling area under the dash. are there drain holes under the hood (cowl area) where the...

The drain is a runoff from the outside wiper grill, the open area under neath the wiper grill is for outside air to suct in from your a/c blower. The only way to repair it is to the body shop this will take alot of $$$$$$$$. but for me I'll take a rubber glue tube, cut a piece of rubber inter tube and apply the glue patch it from the inside............where the water is coming in. This work for about 5 years now since I live in the pacific rim, rust is very but here.......good luck

Air Conditioner leaking into passenger side of 1999 Ford Escort. Need to locate drain line to clean it out...Found leaves and debris in barrel fan... how to keep keep leaves out... THANKS!

The water leaking is caused by the evaporator drain being stopped up. Look under the car in the area of the firewall on the passenger side and try to find the end of a rubber hose the water is supposed to drain from. Clear it out with air pressure.

The leaves will usually work their way in from the fresh air intake below the wipers. Keep it cleared off to prevent them from getting to the fan.

Water runs down off through the grill in bonnet

hi no what is supposed to happen is that the water on the screen is supposed to rundown and then run along the guttering inside the engine bay either side, you can make sure that the holes the water is supposed to run through are not blocked, if you look just at the back of the hood where the screen is either side you Will see where the water runs, this is just normal for these cars .......hope that helps

Hi my 1999 Ford escort when it goes back to idle

sounds like a vacuume leak, take some soapy water in a spray bottle and spray the hoses slowly, when the motor levels out you found your leak, being 11 yrs old, i would change all the hoses anyway, they are overdue

Wiper control

the hose may be clogged. you can unhook the hose from your window wash tank and wiper and try blowing it out. or just replace if you can't. very cheap. check the fuse also.

Heater not working in ford escort

Hi Roger,

This is prashant from india. well i am mostly into cars especially ford escort. the problem that you have seems to be with the heater coil, if the compressor and blower is working fine then definitely its the problem with the heating coil. Might be wiring issue or the coil might have gone bad. so you may need to replace.

have a nice day!
