If it's in the passenger footwell then it's a broken heater matrix.

Water dripping onto passenger side floor from the inside passenger assist handle.


Does your car have a sun (or moon) roof? A leak in a sunroof will sometimes follow the roof over to the door post and down to the floor were the water will accumulate. This can be hard to find sometimes but having one person spraying water on the roof while a second one checks the inside of the vehicle you may be able to pinpoint the leak.
Hope this helps.

Coolant leaking on passenger floor


Sounds like the heater core is leaking. The heater core is located inside the vehicle, usually contained within a plastic box, when the heater core leaks enough, the plastic box will fill up with coolant and eventually leak out, usually onto the passenger side floor. Hope this helps.

Do I need to add coolant


You can add some plain water, or go ahead and mix with coolant. The level should be half way between full and add when the engine is cold.

The heater core had air in it and so did the upper hose. I think when they add coolant to our MINI's the system they use pumps air in. They need to bleed it out. Had mine fixed yesterday.

01 durango leakiing coolant nea trans and inside of vehicle


Leaking inside sounds like the heater core. If the core is broke right where the heater hoses connect, it might be losing coolant down both sides of firewall, inside and outside. Otherwise, look for a leak at the intake manifold. That might run down back of engine near the transmission, as you indicated.
Good luck.

Hi, there is a gurgling sound coming from my BH5 2 litre N/A Legacy. Yesterday it started overheating, it has yet to reach past 3/4 on the temp gauge but that's only because I stopped driving it


Sounds that you are low on coolant so low that the coolant sensor is no longer immersed in it If the coolant sensor is prevented from working, due to low levels of coolant, then the engine radiator cooling fan will not be started and overheating will result. The gurgling you hear is due to air in the system. When the engine is cold remove the coolant reservoir cap. Set the interior heater to max temperature. Top up the reservoir to the maximum limit with water/antifreeze mix (2:1 is usual). Start the the engine. Be prepared to add more coolant mix as air is cleared from the system. When the top hose from the engine to the radiator gets warm give it plenty of squeezing to help shift any air pockets. The fan should also start at about this time. Make sure that the interior heater is blowing hot air. When the gurgling has stopped and no more coolant needs to be added to stay at the max level then replace the reservoir cap and secure it firmly. Allow the engine to reach running temperature. Check all hoses, junctions, gaskets water pump seal etc for any signs of leaks as it would be good to detect any cause for the previous loss of coolant.

I had refilled coolant yesterday. Today, coolant is empty and engine gets very smokey.


Always check your hoses for leaks. Check also if your radiator has water while engine is shut off. Add water to your radiator and add the coolant in the reservoir if its empty. Start it and observe your engine while running and check the hoses if anything is leaking. Check underneath of the car if something is dripping. Observe your temp gauge if it rises. If you don't find anything leaking, you could check your radiator only after you let the engine cool down. If the water is drained inside the radiator, then the radiator could be busted. If you have a perfectly fine radiator and the hoses do not leak, then it could be the water pump that's defective. If you are unsure about the problem then have it checked in your local dealership or your friendly neighborhood mechanic.

MY 1998 KEEPS LEAKING COOLANT ON PASSENGER SIDE. MECHANIC CHANGED HOSE YESTERDAY STILL HAS LEAK NOT SURE WHAT IT CAN BE. I AM TAKING IT BACK TO THE MECHANIC SATURDAY. WHAT ELSE SHOULD HE CHECK?


If it's leaking on the passenger side floor it's the heater core.

If it's leaking on the ground he can re-tighten the hose and check the heater hoses.
