SOURCE: air conditioner leaks (drains)into the front passenger seat floor mat

I had the same problem. Drilled a hole in the round plastic extension beneath the glove box, behind the carpet. Now run a coat hanger through it, followed by alot of compressed air. It may take several times, debri from above may be continuosly replugging drain. when you are done, clean thoroughly, and patch with hot melt glue. Good luck.

SOURCE: leak onto floor passenger side from neck of ac drain through firewall

It's not your heater core. If your heater core is out it would leak antifreeze. My wife's 97 Grand Cherokee had the same problem. It is condensation from your AC coming leaking through a round hole in the AC unit at the firewall. Pull the carpet back and dry out underneath it, there will be a lot of water and we had to leave the carpet pulled back with a fan blowing on it all weekend to dry out. I fixed this about 8 years ago so if I remember correctly, the was a plastic part of the AC at the firewall that had a hole in it that the water was coming out of, I could see leaves and debris in the hole so I know it was part of the drain system. I cleaned out what debris I could and used a cone shaped peice of rubber and twisted it in to plug the hole and tapped over the plug to ensure that it wouldn't back out with vibrations, etc. After you dry everything off start the engine and turn the AC on max, you'll be able to see the where the water is leaking from after the AC gets cold. Hope this helps, it drove us nuts for a year before we figured it out and the wet carpet smell wasn't pleasant.

SOURCE: air conditioner drain is clogged

If it is truly a plugged drain... there is a hose that exits under the car near where your feet would be, but a little forward of that. it looks like a 1 inch hose sticking out with nowhere to go. gently poke a coat hanger into that, but not too far or too hard. You may damage the heater core or evaporator. If there is debris, you will see it on the hanger or you will dislodge it and the drain will be clear.

SOURCE: water in floor on passenger side

The issue is condensation from your air conditioner not properly draining. This is usually caused by a damaged, or clogged drain hose. The condensation is supposed to drain outside the vehicle by way of a hose on the firewall area.

There is water the fills the floor of the passenger side of the car when the air conditioner is running


The AC condensation drain is clogged, when the AC is on water is condensed on the cold AC evaporator core (this part is what cools the incomming air), this water drains out the bottom of the heater/AC air duct, the drain is at the bottom of the firewall under the hood on the passenger side, run a coat hangar up into the drain to clear it.

Water on floor passenger side after it rains and after air has been running 2000 grand prix


Ac hose leak?
leaking heater core?

Hint: it leaks when it RAINS

If it were related to the heater core or the AC drain, it would be leaking when it is not raining also, so those diagnoses are not logical.

The grand prix has a long history of floor leaks from seal failures around the air intake under the windshield cowling, where RAIN water runs in.

Water leaking from ac on passenger side front floor board on 2006 Dodge Stratus.


Look for an evaporator drain that is clogged. You'll find it on the firewall possibly on the underside of the car. It will look like a hose that is coming out of the car and is connected to nothing. You can try sticking a coat hanger gently in the hose to try and dislodge whatever is blocking it, usually leaves.

There is a hose on the passenger side fire wall. You may have the water leaking back into the car, and may need an extension piece.

I need to find the water drain plug or where it drains the water out of the air conditioner on a 2000 caravan. It seems to be plugged


it is leaking into the van on the passenger side isnt it? I bet I am right. I dont know if your has an in cabin filter or not. if it does then I suggest to take it out until the problem is fixed. if the removal of the filter fixes the problem then replace it with a new one. the drain for the AC should be located on the passenger side fire wall. check and see if there is a hose that connected to the vent drain that may have fell off. it this is the case then air can be forced into the drain at the fire wall while you are driving. the AC fan should be able to blow out of the drain normally and thus helping to keep it drained. it should have a path that faced downward, that way when driving the outside air passing by the hose while driving will actually have a slight suction effect on the drain.
you get the idea. hope this helps. if there is no hose and it is still draining outside. then the wind outside while driving could cause the water drip to flow down the fire wall itself and all it takes is a poor seal around where the drain goes thru the firewall and it could leak back into the vehicle around this drain

O2 tahoe


Probably not. Residue on the passengers side rug is likely either from a leaky heater core or a blocked air conditioner evaporator drain. Is the residue slippery feeling? Does it have a sweet anti-freeze smell? If you blot it up with a white towel, does it have a color?

If it is colored the same color as your anti-freeze (green, orange or pink, depending on what type your tahoe uses) and has a sweet smell, my bet is the heater core is leaking. This would also cause fogging on the windshield when using the front defroster and a sweet smell from the air vents when the heat is turned on.

If it just seems like water and seems to get worse when you use your air conditioning, it is likely a blocked AC evaporator drain.

In any case, neither of these problems are likely to be related to an intake manifold job.

Water leak on the passenger rug for 2003 Corolla


well if you have water or coolant leaking on to the rug in your car, first you must remember that every car has 2 radiators. One for the Engine which is in the front of your car under the hood and one for your heater, which is usually hidden deep behind the dash inside of your car. So if you are leaking fluids on to the rug in the car; Im 90% sure its going to be something dealing with the heater radiator. What you have to do is find out where your heater radiator is on your car and check all the hoses.
