Drain clogged under ac core, The drain is on the firewall behind ac evaporator cylinder. Use a long wire tie to unclog it.

PS, water, not antifreeze. Meaning it doesn't mean to be replaced.

You have a leak from your heater matrix. you could try some radweld or similar but usually you have to replace the matrix. Not an easy job. Best of luck.Derek.

Test heater core


Robert,
Using a cooling system pressure test tool to pressurize the entire cooling system, a heater core will leak into the HVAC [heater, ventilation and air conditioning] box [located under the dash board]. Once coolant leaks into this box, it will either drop onto the carpeting on the passenger side front floor OR drip out the condensate tube [where the A/C condensate water leaks out under the truck] The condensate tube is a rubber pipe located on the lower end of the passenger side firewall.
Leakage into the passenger carpet [most common place for it to leak] will appear as a wet carpet.
If heater core replacement is required, do yourself a favor. Buy and install a new A/C evaporator [located in the HVAC box with the heater core] at the same time. This is a big job to do. No sense replacing the heater core now, only to have the A/C evaporator fail next summer, forcing you to repeat all that labor [8 hours for a pro mechanic who knows what he is doing].

Water in acumilating on passenger side floor. only when a/c is on.


Bad heater core leaking fluid. You can either replace the heater core or you can just connect the hoses on the fire wall that go to the heater core until you are able to get it fixed to keep water from leaking into the vehicle

Water leaks onto the passenger floorboard during heavy rain


Floor plug or plugs have fallen out most likely.There Should be some plastic plugs under the floor board outside. Look to visualy check to insure they are still in one piece.

A busted heater core will flood the passenger side floorboard when the heat is turned on.

Replacing heater fan please advise access to fan motor


the heater blower motor is located under the dash on the passengers side,there's a single plug with two wires that you have to disconnect then there is three bolts to remove and then remove the blower motor, sometimes there a plastic (or carpeted)cover you have to remove first under the dash to gain access to the blower motor .

Blower on the heater/AC not working on 1998 Escort, checked fuse under dash?


Ok, first off, check the fuses under the dash. If they're all good, does the blower work only on high speed? If yes, then you have a bad blower motor resistor, which is located under the hood, near the blower motor itself. If the motor doesnt work at all at any fan speed, make sure the wiring harness that plugs into the motor under the hood is clean and tightly installed. If it still doesnt operate, sometimes tapping on the blower motor housing will kick it on, but if that doesnt work, you may have to replace the blower motor. They are available aftermarket, and arent usually too expensive.
