SOURCE: leaking water from front passenger side, under dashboard

It is either condensation water from the A/C unit that should go out a drain tube to the outside (only if A/C or Defrost is on) or a leaky heater core. If it is a heater core you can usually smell a coolant smell and the water will be warm and your windows will fog up inside. Heater core is more common. Joe ASE Master Tech

SOURCE: water leak from passenger side

I believe if you take a close look at your windshield seal at the top corner of the drivers side, you'll see a gap. Please get back to me on this ASAP. The reason for the urgency is that this water can infiltrate the padding under the driverside kick panel sound insulator causing a major short.

Why is coolant leaking from underneath the center of my cadillac deville 1997? I've replaced everything that has to do with the coolant. There is no water nor fog on the passenger side floor


Well, if the coolant is leakimg from the HVAC drain, then you need a heater core, no matter what. You really have to jack it up and look, but I can give you a couple of pointers......

1. The water pump is leaking. That happens a lot. The coolant is leaking near the front of the car, near the center, but ever so slightly towards the drivers side. You need a special tool to replace it and I think gm has an updated cover and gasket.

2. The water pump housing is leaking. The gaskets that seal it to the block are made of plastic and deteriorate often. The coolant will be leaking at the center of the car, maybe up by the water pump, or back between the engine and transmission.

3. The heater hoses. I have only seen this 2 time, but the metal pipes corrode along the fire wall.

4. You could need a radiator. I have seen the side tanks leak a few times.....


Just A couple of places to look, but you have to get under and look....

1997 Camry 4-cyl fan works but heat very weak - coolant level ok


Probability 1) The thermostat is probably stuck open, coolant is not getting hot enough from the engine to provide heat.

Starting from cold, allow the engine to run and warm up. While doing this, feel the upper radiator hose - you should be able to feel the coolant heating up to the point the hose is uncomfortably hot. If it gets that hot, then go to next step.

Probability 2) The heater core flow is restricted, not allowing full flow of coolant into passenger compartment.

There are 2 smaller heater hoses that run to the firewall. Are either of these hoses getting hot? Both sides hot indicate full coolant flow. Both sides cool indicate heater control valve not opening fully.

Water leaks from under and behind motor, when car gets hot it will drain the water really fast, it looks like its behind the engine where I can't see it.


I'd guess you have a failed freeze plug (probably corroded). This looks like a large metal bottle cap (about 1 1/4" diameter, more or less) tapped "inside out" into the engine block. There are several on each side and a couple in the back just in front of the flywheel. It drains faster when the engine is hot because then the thermostat opens and lets the radiator coolant flow through.

If it is a corroded freeze plug, check the others for signs of corrosion. After repair, make sure you put in the recommended amount of anti-freeze and change it at recommended intervals to prevent corrosion in the future.

Ac leaking water inside of car


The '97 Jeep does not have a hose. It goes into the frame. If you lay on your back by the passenger side door you will see an oval hole. Stink a coat hanger through that hole and water will gush out. Also in the passenger side floor board towards the firewall there is a black plastic part, the bottom portion is round. Drill a hole in the dead center of the round part and water will flow out. Stick a long piece of stiff wire in it, blow it out with air and do the same from the bottom of the frame as mentioned earlier. It will flow out nice at first but will probably clog up again. I cut a piece of coat hanger and left it in the bottom portion, put electric tape over the hole in the dash and when I see it is not flowing - check frequently I shake the wire from underneath and it flows again. After owning a jeep for 6 months I have concluded that jeep engineers are stupid careless people.

How to replace water pump


1. Drain coolant from engine.
2. Remove water pump drain plug. It is located on the front of the block just above the A/C compressor and about 2 o'clock of the crankshaft pulley.
3. Place a floor jack under engine (be sure to use a piece of wood in between jack and oil pan). Remove the right side engine mounting, mounting bracket and nuts.
4. Remove the drive belts and idler pulley bracket.
5. Remove the two black covers on the front of the engine. The one towards the radiator will have the water pump behind it and the one towards the thermo barrier will have the timing chain tenioner behind it.
6. Push in the tensioner sleeve, apply a stopper pin so it does not return ( a paper clip will work ).
7. Remove the tensioner (2 - 10mm bolts )
8. Remove the 3 water pump bolts.
9. Turn the crankshaft pulley approximately 20 degrees backwards to put slack in the chain to give clearance for the water pump.
10. Install the two M8 bolts into the threaded holes in the water pump (the upper hole and the lower hole)
11. Tighten the M8 bolts by turning half turn alternately until the water pump becomes loose. Lift up water pump and remove it. Make sure you move the timing chain away from the pump to remove it. Do not worry about engine timing. It will not effect it at all. The water pump is not part of timing the engine, nor will the chain losse contact with the crankshaft gear.
12. Make sure to use two new "O" rings on the water pump.
13. Install water pump and tighten bolts (63.4 - 85.1 inch pounds)
14. Return the crankshaft pulley to its original position by turning it 20 degrees forward.
15. Install timing chain tensioner, then remove the stopper pin ( paper clip)
16. Place sealer on the black covers and reinstall.
17. Reinstall engine mounting.
18. Reinstall drive belts.
19. Fill with new coolant.
20. Start engine and check for leaks. (Engine will be noise at first until the tensioner fills with engine oil. This is normal.)

Water leak


maybe theres a pin hole from rust in your fire wall. On my 1993 gran prix it had a pin hole and right by the pin hole in the fir wall there was a little lip in the metal and it would hold water for sometime.
