Water Leaks In Car

I have a 1993 Pontiac Grand Am with water leaks. I have read this is common with this car. Any suggestions where I should start. I have seen numerous possibilities where it could be coming from. Now that its so cold in the Northeast the car is iced up inside the car windows. Any help to here should I start looking?

Thanks
Lori

    I am not sure where its coming from. Depending on the pitch of the car I can have a puddle on the floor mats front or rear. I did notice water in the glove compartment yesterday. The windshield seal is good, The wndshield was just replaced and the problem is still there. Thank you for your response.

My daughter car leak too. We located our leak under the hood where the hood hinges attach to the body and the top of the struts you should see it looks like there is some clear caulk and where there is a seam in the metal all the way across the car. This area needs to be resealed. My husband just use bath and tile caulk (this is if you don't care what it looks like, you will not see it when the hood closed) He did this about 6 months ago and so far so good.

No Problem! Well Lori-- At this point I am Stumped also! I was going to Suggest Blow By From the Door Seals, Which could happen even with good Seals OR Maybe they Missed a Small Part when Installing the Windshield OR Heater Core Is Leaking. These cannot be the Solution if you had Water in the Glove Box! Does this car have a Sunroof???? That could cause the Problem But, You would see Water Trails Coming from the Headliner if it does have one. I REALLY wish that I could help Further on this! Keep it Posted up and see if anybody has any Ideas that I have Missed.

I have a 2006 pontiac grand prix and it is leaking coolant and we can not find where it is leaking from. We replaced the water pump gasket and it still leaks. It looks like it is leaking from something...


have a pressure test done so that you can see where it is leaking from.. If it is in the side of the block it may be a rusted welsh plug. Check inside the car for a leaking heater core and hoses . Check the drain hole under the water pump as it may be leaking from that hole while the pump is running ( water pump seal)

My daughter just bought a 2000 pontiac grand am and it gets water in the back drivers side when it rains hard. Any suggestions as to what the problem is?


Is the car equipped with a sunroof. If so, I suspect sunroof drain is plugged up (leaves etc..) You need to blow compressed air through drains to unplug (if so equipped) You can also take it to a self serve car wash and spray hi pressured soapy water at suspect area, soap will leave a trail.

Why does my 2000 pontiac grand am leak coolant


coolant leaking could come from different areas, i would 1st start checking for leaks around the thermostat area, this is normally where the top radiator hose connects too, then i would look at the water pump area to see if any coolant is visable on the outside of it, also check your heater hoses for leaks too, some cars have even had antifreeze leaks coming from the freeze plugs, which are installed into the engines block, they are normally on the sides of the engines. don't forget to check out the radiator, a good way to find antifreze leaks is after you drive the car for a while, and then park it, and then put a large piece of cardboard under your car, make it large enough to go from the radiator to at least the windshield area, if it leaks then, you will be able to see what area the antifreeze has leaked.

2002 Pontiac Grand Prix is loosing coolant and having to add every 3-4 days. No leaks are found. After running car for some time there seems to be no pressure under the radiator cap and its cold.


Try getting your local mechanic to pressure test it. The can pump up the system and check for leaks.
Also the head gasket might have a minor leak. It may only leak once engine cools, the head shrinks and then water leaks out

Have a 97 grand prix my car is running about 210 in the thermstat (that is in traffic but on the interstate it runs about 160), but it smell as if it is overheating, it leaks a lot of water when you turn...


These are bad for intake gaskets leaking, Look on rear of engine (Right side looking downfrom front) look on top of trans, If you see liquid there, It is for sure a blown intake gasket

Bad leak, dont know if its water pump or thermostat


sounds like your water pump gasket has a hairline crack in it and as engine warms it expands and leaks more

1993 Grand Am SE V-6 Water Leak


Is the water coming out of the a/c drain or is it one of the heater hoses going into the fire wall. If its coming out the a/c drain you need a new heater core. if its outside its just a rotten hose.

1996 Pontiac Grand Am / Overheating


likely you have a blown head gasket or crack in head. Though common, this condition does not always show up in engine oil. To verify, have a shop do a hydrocarbon test on radiator.

1994 pontiac grand prix leaking water


It sounds like either the heater valve which may be located inline with a 5/8" hose or 3/4" hose or the heater core is leaking, a heater core is like a small radiator.
