If you have access to air compressor get some foam window cleaner and spray it all around the outside of windshield on drivers side.Then on the inside of windshield shoot some air there and see if you can tell where the leak is. If it is not to bad you maybe able to seal it with some windshield sealer. How ever most of the time to fix it correctly windshield does have to be removed.

I have a 2004 sun fire I can hear air coming in when the widows are up sounds like it is come from the dash

Has the windshield been replaced? If so, it's possible that the seals were not set properly and air is in fact coming in from the sides or top of the windshield. You should check to see if the chrome molding around the windshield or the rubber seals that may be exposed appear to be damaged in any way. If you had the windshield replaced, the shop that handled the repair should be willing to fix if for you.

If the culprit is really the windows, you need to have the rubber gaskets repaired to create a better seal. Sometimes they come loose and droop a bit. A body shop can check them and glue them back in place if you aren't able to handle the task. If you are able and willing, an auto supply store can set you up with a tube of adhesive that will do the trick. If the rubber gaskets are cracked and torn in spots, this will cause an annoying air leak and they will need to be removed and replaced.

If you can't figure out where the noise is coming from as you drive, have a second person ride along and listen to the wind noise as you drive with the radio off and the windows up. If the car is a 4 door, have them ride in the back seats to see if they can trace the air leak.

Good luck.

Leaks water comes out the handle on passenger side - rain or even the carwash - windshield or sunroof?

This is weird. I think you are referring to the passenger assist handle on what is known as the A pillar. Regardless, as a quick test dump half a bucket of water so it runs down the windshield but not the sunroof. Wait for leaking to start. If no leakage is seen, repeat the test, this time spread all over the sunroof and wait for leakage to start. After this, you should know where the leak is.

Water leaks around blower motor. How do I remove the windshield to repalce gasket?

Once the trim is removed around the windshield if any, poke a copper wounded guitar string through and have one person outside and one inside. Clamp a set of vice grips on each end and work back and forth like a saw around the windshield and remove..........Hope this helps you out.

My car leaks through the screw holes in the handle on the upper side of driver and passenger window when it rains. During heavy rains it will pour onto the dash and floor board. What is causing the leak...

Most of the time it's a windshield leak as the roof sould'nt have any holes in it except where the windshield is connected to the car body. Most do it yourselfers aren't experienced enough to remove and reinstall windshields so is best to call around to see who in your area does windshield work and if your in the USA and have Comperhensive insureance the company can remove and install the windsheild and charge your insurance for the work.

How to remove front windshield from a 1996 ,2.4 liter Dodge Carav

There are tools to do this but you are better off having a pro take it off and re install it for you, granted he may charge the same price of almost 200 bucks to do so which is about the cost of a new windshield ( without any heating element in them for defrost) but it will save you grief, otherwise i believe they use a steel wire with two handles to slice the adhesive between the glass and body then they carefully push it out of the frame YOU MAY BREAK YOUR WINDSHIELD DOING THIS IF YOU HAVE NEVER DONE IT BEFORE.

Water in Passenger footwell

Tracking water leakage in cars is often not easy. However, in your case, I would start with the windshield. Was it recently replaced? If so, the seal might not be fine. Check the windshield rubber trim cover that runs around the top and bottom of the windshield to see if it is coming off from the frame of the car. It doesn't take much for water to get behind it if it is even slightly up.

While you are doing that, check around the top of the door frame. Many a time, water will travel down the contour of the door by the hinges and enter the footwell area if the rubber gasket has been compromised in any way.

Finally, check to make sure that the firewall of the vehicle does not have any rusted hole or improperly installed rubber bushing or gasket on the firewall that could allow water to run along any wires or cables there and trickle into the vehicle. I hope I have been able to help you with this problem. Good luck.

Need to no where the dipstick is for Transmission

Look at this pic, you have to remove the center plug to check fluid.

You will also need special tool to add fluid.

Basically you run engine until fluid temp reaches 80-120 deg and remove the center plug when the fluid comes out as a thin stream or drip, the fluid is at the correct level.
