Excess moisture causing mold to grow


The moisture in the trunk is coming through into the car with air movement, since the trunk is not air tight to the car interior.

Let's do the trunk first.
Remove the spare tire and carpet and all else in the trunk and dry it out. I would used small space heater or a blow dryer or anything else that will heat and dry the air. If you want to fix the water leak, you will need to find out where it coming from.
The most common place is the gasket around the trunk lid.
After that, a rust hole somewhere in the trunk.
You may find a new gasket hard to find, and if you do, not easy to replace as well.
Finding a rust hole might require you to take a strong light and have a helper to look either inside when you have the light outside, or outside when you have the light inside the trunk, (night works best).
On older cars, I have often made a permanent hole in the lowest part of the trunk to drain out water leaks.
Make a hole about 1/2" diameter of more, so it won't plug up. There are sometimes rubber or plastic plugs you can remove to drain the trunk as well.
Make it so stuff you replace into the trunk will not cover that hole. Carpet holds water, so you may choose to put a new piece of something in there, or nothing.
Read the instructions below on usuing "Damp-Rid" plastic buckets in your trunk.

Now lets go inside the car.
I recommend you dry out the inside with a space heater or blow dryer as well, for a day or a few days.
Then,
Lumber yards and hardware stores and such places sell a small bucket of stuff called "Damp Rid"" This is plastic tub full of white crystals that absorb water out of the air. Put one or two of these in your car on the floor of the back seat and maybe the passenger's front seat. Follow instruction on the container, and they will remove moisture from inside your car.
NOTE: You must be careful because they work with the top open, and therefore will spill accumulated water when you start and move the car, they'll tip over. If you put them in the trunk, don't forget them there.

Water leaking into the back passenger floorboard of Plymouth 1998 Neon


I had the exact same problem with my 1995 neon. It was leaking around the tail light. I pulled the tail lights off and put a heavy coat of RTV silicone on the gasket, and 2 years later never happened again

What causes wet passenger side floor in 2000 chrysler 300m?


Water.
You may have a rusted floor kicking up water, or a door seal may be leaking. check for both. In my 96 convertible it comes from the rocker panel filling up with water after a rain and it spills into the rear floorboards. It could be similar, although I don't see how a rocker can fill up like that in a hardtop. Check it out anyway, and run a coat hanger through the weep holes between the rocker and the floorboard where they are welded together They form a ridge on an angle like this: \\ on the lip and forms a small tube. This tube gets clogged with stuff and has to be routed out with that coat hanger from time to time. Eventually it will rust out and the problem will go away!!

05 Reo Trunk fills up with water. Gasket replaced but didn't solve problem.


After it rains have you noticed and water drips that might give you a clue as to where the water is coming from? It might be leaking around the base of the back window. Does the water come in only when the car has been driving or does it come in while the car is parked? If the water is coming in while its parked then there is a hole somewhere on top, probably around the back window, and is running into the trunk. When its raining or after it has rained look in the trunk and see if you can see water droplets and this should give you a clue where its coming in. You can also hose the car down yourself. This might be a good idea to try when the trunk is dry so you can see what does and doesn't allow water in the car. Try running water on one side at a time. If it only seems to come in after you have been driving the car, it may very well be coming in around the wheel wells or around the gas fill pipe. Look inside the trunk and see if there are any rust spots and use a flash light to see if you can see any holes through the metal. take a close look around the sides on the floor of the trunk and see if there are any pieces of rust accumulating, this might help direct your search for the hole. You may also want to look behind the tail lights and see if there is rust damage. Check the seals around the tail lights and see if its getting in that way. Look behind the licence plate for rust damage as well. Try those things and see how it goes. Good luck.

LEAKING WATER INTO THE TRUNK WHEN IT RAINS...WHERE IS IT COMING IN? ALL RUBBER GASKET AROUND TRUNK LID IS FINE.


has the car been in any accidents? if so, it could have a small crack in the seam sealer of the panel. Lock for any spots of sealer and see if it has a visible crack or hole. Also, if your back glass is leaking at the bottom it could find its way into your trunk. Also re-check the gaskets, the get flimsy with old age and may look fine but not be touching everywhere still. Check and see if one spot of the gaskets is dirtier then the rest. This is usually a telltale sign of water or air getting through.

If your concerned that there may be another place of water entry. Find a shop that has a tool known as the "SMOKER" this is a device that produces white smoke with mineral oil or scentless baby oil. I suggest to fill the trunk up with smoke and see where the smoke escapes to.

I have a 2001 Olds Aurora and the trunk keeps filling up with water. Can't find a leak. Any suggestions?


Try this trick, add vasoline to your weather strip to your trunk. What happens is when the weather strips start to get old, they can no longer conform to the truck and gaps form letting water to get in. Good luck and keep me posted.

Will varying temperatures affect the rate in which metal rusts when submerged in different liquids?


yes rust or iron oxide is formed when iron (Fe) reacts with the oxygen (O2) in the air and in water. the more oxygen the faster it will rust and since cold air is denser than hot air it could be said that metal will rust in the cold much faster. however once freezing point is reached the o2 in water cannot react with the iron and therefore is a nonreactant. only the o2 in the air would react so below freezing the process is slowed considerably. the liquid would affect the rate at which rust forms because of the water content in the liquid. if you submerge a screw in oil you could leave it indefinitely and it would not rust because there is no O2 whatsoever in it. whereas if you left it in apple juice the water in the mixture would eventually cause it to rust.

if your looking to keep somthing from rusting a coat of oil or wd40 then wrapped in plastic wrap is your best bet

Spare tire is stuck to the bottom of my trunk


If there is rust there is going to be damage anyway but there is no telling how much till you take the tire out. Better now then let it rust away where you cant see it and possible cause more problems
