Question about 2000 Mitsubishi Galant

1 Answer

Water coming into car from a/c

I have a 2000 mitsubishi galant, we've been having water coming into the car on the driver's side, and going all the way to the back seat area. We first thought it was coming in when it rain, but quickly realized it wasn't. I believe there should be a drain hose for the a/c, but I can't find it. If anyone can help, it would be greatly appreciated.

There is a small plastic pipe coming out of the firewall right behind the power steering rack knuckle but unfournatly usally if the drain is stopped up it leaks in passenger side the driver side is caused by the water draing then beeing blown under the drain pipe and it comes back into the drivers floor board there is 2 fixes finding a rubber elbo works most of the the time but you may need to replace the gasket for the drain tube where it sets against the firewall wich involves pulling the dash out so keep your fingers crossed that the elbow works

Look under your hood, not under the dash. It'll be against the firewall. Short tube pointing down.

I have a 2000 Mitsubishi Galant. Car has been nothing but problems, that is beside the point though. I have water under my drivers seat and in the back seat drivers side. I do not see water running down...

Lets start with the water inside the car. Usually, if the heater core is leaking, you have coolant on the passenger side not the driver side. And the liquid is oily or greasy, not clear. There is a good chance one of the door gaskets is leaking rain water into the car.
When you check the fluids you should always check the radiator in addition to the overflow tank. You could have an external leak, or the engine could be burning coolant which would cause the radiator to be low. Never take the radiator cap off when the engine is hot.

Water leak on mitsubishi galant 1999

the probable cause is the drain for the ac coil is stopped up for an a/c leak inside.
if it smells like anti-freeze, the heater coil is leaking and may need to be replaced.

My car is leaking water inside when I turn the AC on. I have a 2001 Mitsubishi Galant ES

I had a problem with water also, so I took it to the dealer. It was a clogged drain on the passenger side. I think the one that ran from the windshield wiper area. It took about five minutes fo fix and my dealer did it for free. Not sure if your issue is the same.
