Question about 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse

1 Answer

Wet rear floor

I have a 94 Buick Park Ave and the rear passenger floor stays soaking wet at all times. The floor is intact no rust. I was thinking the hear coil/core however wouldnt that the passenger side front floor wet? Help I have a 99 eclipse... the whole passenger side floor is soaked and my rear passenger seat. Nothing seems to be leaking through the top when it rains and I have no idea how its getting that soaked! Does anyone have any suggestions?

    oops that was a comment before mine that got copied into my question somehow. I am asking about the 99 eclipse....

    I took out the back seat and lifted the carpet today. There's a metal plate over something electrical but its just open to the ground. Its located under the seat of the rear passenger side. I think this may be the source of the leak but I am getting different opinions. I haven't notices any plugs missing but then again I'm not sure where there should be holes and where there shouldn't be. I'm not sure if it is only when I drive it or when it is just sitting there. I haven't had the chance to just let it sit in the rain. I've never noticed this when its not raining.

Have you by any chance jacked up the passenger side, or got vehicle on a hoist to make sure there isn't any plugs on the underside that may have fell out? They could be round or oval metal or rubber plugs, probably in that area.

    Notice it all the time or only after a rain? If vehicle just sits during a rain, does it get wet then too, or only when driven in rain. Or regardless of rain, it's wet?

Have a 94 Buick century. Replaced thermostate. Running hot. Looks as tho is leaking underneath front near pump. And also in passenger floor board can't see the leak from inside. It's just alwa


Whenever I see a system which is leaking from more than one or two places, I do a head gasket check because that tells me that the system is experiencing above normal pressures. the wet floor is a heater core. whether it's a water pump or some other thing near it only you can tell. Actually it rarely happens, but the wet floor could be the hose where it meets the heater core at the firewall; again, only you will be able to tell the difference. if the hose connection looks dry, assume that it is the core itself.

My floor boards in my Cavalier are Soaked ..


If you've been using your air conditioner during this time, and it hasn't rained at all, then the small drain at the bottom of the a/c evaporator core may be plugged. When you use the a/c to cool the car the evaporator coil [located next to the heater core in the ductwork under the dash] is very cold and moisture from the hot humid air condenses on it as a result. This condensation dribbles down the core and accumulates in the plastic housing under it where it should then drain out a small hole and drip onto the ground. If the small drain gets plugged, which happens quite often, then the water fills up the housing until it overflows and then runs out and soaks the carpet on the front passenger side. The drain is located on the engine side of the firewall, passenger side, down low where the firewall begins to curve under. Usually a puff of air will clear the clog and the drain will work fine again. If the carpet is really wet it would be a good idea to remove it and get everything dry again as it tends to get pretty smelly if left wet. One last note: usually a leaky a/c unit will only make the passenger side carpet wet unless it's been leaking for a long time while a leaky windshield seal can make both sides wet depending on where it is leaking. Good luck, hope this helps you out!

Wet rear floor


I had a similar issue and found that the two rear drain holes for the sun roof came off and any water was running down into the trunk and also the rear floor was always wet. I pulled the rear of the roof panel down to expose the rubber tubes, re-seated them with glue so they would not come off again.
