Heater core is leaking...Try a stop leak, if this doesn't fix it you need to replace the heater core. Expensive.

Why is coolant leaking from underneath the center of my cadillac deville 1997? I've replaced everything that has to do with the coolant. There is no water nor fog on the passenger side floor


Well, if the coolant is leakimg from the HVAC drain, then you need a heater core, no matter what. You really have to jack it up and look, but I can give you a couple of pointers......

1. The water pump is leaking. That happens a lot. The coolant is leaking near the front of the car, near the center, but ever so slightly towards the drivers side. You need a special tool to replace it and I think gm has an updated cover and gasket.

2. The water pump housing is leaking. The gaskets that seal it to the block are made of plastic and deteriorate often. The coolant will be leaking at the center of the car, maybe up by the water pump, or back between the engine and transmission.

3. The heater hoses. I have only seen this 2 time, but the metal pipes corrode along the fire wall.

4. You could need a radiator. I have seen the side tanks leak a few times.....


Just A couple of places to look, but you have to get under and look....

1997 Honda Passport overheating and no heat inside car


Low coolant is the usual culprit, followed by a bad thermostat. When the car is cold take the radiator cap off and check the coolant level and add as needed, then make sure overflow tank is at the correct level. If the radiator is low but the overflow has fluid, replaced the radiator cap.

I have a 95 Honda Civic and my car occasionally has trouble shifting from 1st to 2nd gear and sometimes 2nd to 3rd gear. When this occurs, I start to decelerate so I let my foot off the gas and put it back...


Is your problem a grinding of gears? If so, sounds like synchronizers in the transmission going bad. As for the coolant on the passenger side floorboard, hate to say it, but classic tell-tale sign of a bad heater core.

Wet passenger floor board


It sounds like the heater core went out on the car, The heater core is located inside dash on the passenger side. It will leak more when the heater is turned on.

Leaking Fluid


Hi Sarah, I'm glad to help!

Lets address your question first. No it can't be any type of fluids from the Transmission or Engine. The reason the fluid is a brownish color is because the water coming in is washing dirt and debris into the vehicle. NOTE: If you did not notice any leak during the hot weather when your were running the A/C I'd say it's not due to the A/C System. If it were the A/C drain hole plugged up then you would here water sloshing around in the A/C housing close to the blower motor. It seems to me sense it was in the rain and we have had some really hard rain lately that's its most likely due to an outside leak. Here's how you can find the leak if its an outside leak. Close all the windows and run water over the passenger side windshield open the drivers door and get inside and see if you see water coming in, if you do that where your leak is. If you don't then move the water hose to another area and check again until you find it. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Sarah.

Leaking brake fluid from right front wheel 1995 honda passport


Sounds like from what you describe it's a leaking break caliper. The best thing to do is get a rebuilt one. It's best to replace them in pairs. Also replace or clean the brake pads thoroughly!

Air bubbles in overflow tank ?


Please check whether you have a broken Matrix and leaks coolant as you said on Passenger's floorboard.If you have that means that you are having low level coolant and air is winning and cause bubbles. Check the matrix ( heater under dashboard.)

Leak onto floorboard


Here is what all dealers do to find water leaks, we spray a fine mist of water on the car near where the water might be comming in with a spray nozzle, someone gets inside the car and look for the leak, there is no other way, and I have been doing this 30 years.
