Too many items that can leak for me to give an opinion...but, if it's water, not antifreeze it could be condensation from A/C. Coolant is generally green.
How is the cooling system? Is she adding any coolant or is it running low? Last but most obvious, take a careful look and find the source of the leak. If you don't know what it is, you can't fix it!

I have 2003 Ford Taurus sedan & have water leaking into the passenger floor board. What could be causing the problem & fix for it?


Does it leak when you drive in rain, or does it leak all the time?

If the former, can be seals and grommets anywhere in the engine compartment, bad door seal, bad windshield seal, sun roof leak, or holes in the floor pan under the carpet.

If the latter, it is the heating system from the heater core or the pipes to it.

I have a 2002 ford taurus and antifreeze is leaking cant tell from where but it is getting all over my belt and causing smoke could this be a simple hose or a water pump im at a loss


Hello! It sounds like the water pump is leaking...But first, inspect your hoses and their clamping points...
if you can observe coolant leaking, running from the center of the rear of the water pump then it's time to replace it see diagram below for bolt torquing sequence...Bolts1-7=18 Ft. Lbs....Bolts 8-12= 89 In. Lbs.

Leak under car on driver side maybe waterpump


If the fluid is a bright green or yellow colour, it is coolant fluid. Check the water pump, there should be a seal leak drain hole under it, look for signs of a leak. If there is a green/yellow track leading from below the water pump. you need to have the water pump replaced. A leak from the engine would be dark brown to black an a transmission leak would be red tp very dark red. Coolant would tend to dry up while oils spills do not. The water pump is located on the side of the engine where the belts are. I do not know if your car is left or right hand drive.

My car is leaking from behind the water pump, but i know its not the water pump what could the problem be. looks like its leaking rite by the engine block on the passenger side


That is the timing cover gasket. The coolant goes through the timing cover into the block and there is a gasket between the two, and it is a common problem on the taurus.

My 2005 taurus has started getting a pool of water on the passenger side floorboard after a heavy rain, any ideas on how to fix, didn't see any leaks from windshield.


Look for moisture on the glass of the windshield, as well as the passenger side door, if thebottom seal isnt making contact on the door glass water will run in threw the door

Why does water get into the passenger side floorboard of my 2004 ford taurus when it rains hard? it only gets wet during severe downpours


There is a leak from your cowl area.There is a technical service bulletin to install a plastic extension onto the cowl cover so water will not leak in side. It will also damage your blower motor if you don't get it reapred.
