Question about 2006 Mercury Montego
Water pours into the passenger side from under the dash. We had cleared a mouse nest out that was by the windshield under the hood. So it kept draining into the car for several weeks and people kept looking for the problem to no avail. Someone suggested the A/C Compressor drain being plugged so we'd like to know where that is and best way to unplug it.
Well the actual name is the ac evaporator drain. It works much like your fridge at home.
Under the passenger side floor is a small tube that extends out from the heater box inside. The tube is usually the size of your thumb. It allows condensation to drain out onto the ground under the car while the ac is working.
You may need to talk to a body shop or garage to find out exactly where the tube is. And you may have to take the heater box apart to clean it out completely.

You need to clean the drain out as your first step. This is accessed by raising the vehicle on a lift then using something like a coat hanger pressed into the drain hole at the base of the firewall next to the transmission bellhousing on the passenger half of the vehicle.

SOURCE: Where is the drain plug
Look for the oil pan under the car. I did a google search and it gave me this:
Look for the drain plug is and carefully loosen it and drain your oil. Good luck.
