Floorboard wet on drivers side on my 1995 buick skylark


There are a few things you will need to check as the leak could be from windsheild or floor. the first thing is to vacuum floor next is to use a water hose and spray all over windsheild while someone is looking with light inside under the dash to see if water is coming inside, if so then window resealing is needed and window has to be removed. next is to look at floor board from under the car for rust hole, this is the way to go. let me knomw the out come. good day

We replaced radiator, water pump and thermastate and is now leaking from behinde the engine what could it be now


If it's leaking from the back side of the engine (between the engine and transmission), it will most likely be a freeze plug. You will need to remove the transmission to get to it.

Taste the water and if it is sweet it is coolant leaking from the heater core. If it does not taste sweet it is a leak somewhere else. What you suspect is very possible. Start by making sure the drain hose is clear an not clogged. Then check the window gasket. A water hose left running on the window slightly will tell you where the leak is coming from.

Wife,s 97 buick skylark, 2.4 L., leaking water. need help!!!


I had the same problem a month ago. I thought it was the thermostat, which sits inside the lower water feed tube that runs from the radiator, under the car and up between the engine and trans axle to the thermostat housing and water-inlet housing attached to the water pump. I replaced it and it kept leaking. So I got under the car with a mirror and a light and found that it was leaking from a weep hole in the water pump. This happens when the water pump seal is bad. to replace the water pump you nearly have to take apart the back of the engine and the timing chain cover. The waterpump is mounted at the bottom of the back of the engine and is turned by the timimng chain. It took me two days to fix, and it was not easy. There are a couple of sites that have info, which helped me. It's about a $600 - $900 job if you take it to a repair shop.

Water leaking onto drivers side floor board.(not radiator fluid,not leaking at any door seal).


It could be the base of the windshield, or any holes in the firewall in the area just below the windshield (i.e., where the wiper arms are).

I had this problem twice and it probably is the heater core. There is a temporary fix if you can't get it changed out right away. You can get it tied off but you won't have any heat, it will stop leaking though. Does your heater work? If your heater blows cold and only blows warm when your car warms up then starts blowing cool air again that's a surefire sign.
