It is possible for a leak to develop even in a relatively new car. The antenna may not have been properly sealed during manufacture.

SOURCE: I have a oil leak ever since i bought this car.

NO if you have been using oil and loosing oil from all the seals and rocker cover and sump gasket then its caused by a thing called BACK PRESSURE,and that is caused by the piston rings worn, or broken top compression rings and a lip in the bore causing the ring gap to be about
6thou per inch causing the back pressure which in turn blowes oil out of all seals and gaskets ..
So take out the breather pipe from the rocker cover and let it blow into a paper towel for 2 minutes and if oil fumes come out the rings are worn.
Plus get a compression test on all cylinders and see if there down to 100 PSI or less.
The new head bolts should be replaced as they could be streached
threads, but not your problem this time
Let me know how you get on ASAP Ron

SOURCE: Sun roof is leaking into

are you sure it is the sunroof leaking ? if you are sure the the sunroof is in proper alignment and the seals are good then remove the trim around the windshield and check the seal at the top of the windshield to see if that is the leak.

most body shops have a leak finder, this is probley one of the coolest things i have seen in awhile it is a radio transmitter that they put inside the car and then they have a radio receiver that they move around the outside of the car to find the leak, call around to your local body shops to see if any of them have the system. good luck

let me know if there is any thing else i can do for you.

There is water leaking inside above my passenger side door when it rains pretty hard?


is the water leak allowing the water to wick up into the headliner or is the headliner getting wet without water coming past the weather stripping around the door?

If it is wicking then fix the weather stripping.
If the water is getting headliner wet with out passing the weather stripping then you have a leaking sun roof.

You can the door seal by sitting in the car while you have some spray water (garden hose) gentle at the frontal and upper door seal.
If not leak there inspect seal of sun roof and real seal with correct type of sealant.

Water entering 03 mercedes e500


I have had many water leak problems with my 2005 e320. My first experience with this, after a decent amount of rain, water would begin leaking in from the headliner. Originally when bringing it into the dealer, they said that leaves and debris wash down into the body of the car and block the drain holes which are located under the wheel well covers.

Every year, I have taken off the front wheels, removed the wheel well covers and run a hose on the windshield while using something like a coat hanger to ream the debris from the drain holes. This seemed to work somewhat until this last year when there was no debris in the holes, yet I was still having water leaking from the headliner.



I brought the the car to a knowledgable Mercedes tech and he found a repair notice bulletin in the Mercedes database stating they have found that the gasket sealing the roof has been found to have not been appropriately compressed when the car was manufactured. I took it in to a dealership and shared the bulletin and asked them to verify if this was the problem I had. They said it was and the fix required them to completely removed the headliner and replace the gasket to the tune of $2000.

This being a mini factors defect, I think Mercedes should cover the repair, but have not yet addressed it to the manufacturer.



Shortly after this event, I began receiving an error on the heads up display that was found to be created by a leak from the antenna and third brake light bar located in the trunk. I fixed these myself with $3 of silicon instead of paying the $730 the dealer wanted.

Leaking water


Before spending $800 for a might fix it, I would either tape it shut or seal it shut with silicone sealent. Tape might damage the paint, so be aware of this. Personally I would seal it with silicone, it can always be removes although it is a pain in the rear end. After sealing wait for the next rain and look for leaks. You could pull the headliner out and then run a water hose over the roof and look for a leak as well. A body shop will probably be cheaper to repair it than the dealer. Dealers generally charge around $100/hr for labor. Body shops charge around $65.hr.

I have a water leak in the back of the Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.1 ltd 2000, wet carpet with water going in to the spare wheel compartment


Hi Wayne,

I checked for Technical Service Bulletins (TSBs) for your vehicle to see if there are any "known" problems with water leaks. The only bulletin I found was about the sunroof (if equipped) leaking into the passenger compartment.

Since there are no known problems for leaks in the rear, you will just have to do some diagnosis. Water leaks can be very evasive. They can originate in one place and accumulate water in another place. Here are some tips:

First, check the seals around your rear door and window. If there are any cuts or damage to the seals, this is most likely your problem.

You may need to remove the inner trim pieces from both the door and from the vehicle sides. Then run a hose over the top of the vehicle and over the rear door to see if you can see any water running on the inside. Be sure and look for water coming down from the roof area. Sometimes the mouldings and sealing material along the roof seams will leak. If this is the case, it will run down the inside wall and end up in the spare tire well. If you cannot find it this way, it may be necessary to remove the seats and ALL the inside trim so the headliner can be removed. I have seen roof leaks that are originating near the front that follow the roof reinforcement channel all the way to the rear. There are holes in the roof reinforcement chanel where you can look inside with a mirror and a flashlight (the headliner must be removed for this).

Another likely place for a leak is along the sides of the roof where the roof racks attach (if your Jeep is equipped with them).

If you find a leak in one of the seams, it is best to repair it with some (water-based) tub and tile caulk or (oil or water-based) plumber's dope. It is not recommended that you use silicone based RTV sealer because this contains acids that can cause the sheet metal to corrode and you will end-up with a worse problem in the long run.

I hope this helps you to get it figured out.

My 2005 Pacifica has started leaking when it rains hard from the area right above where the airbag button is. The water leaks down to the floor by brake and accelerator pedals.


It sounds like a leak in the sun roof seals. Better fix it right away. I had the same in my Acura and let it go. Soon I had mold and headliner damage all over the ceiling.

Sun roof leaking water


How to Repair a Leaking Car Sunroof Repairing a leaky sunroof usually leads to discovering that the sunroof is not the culprit of the leak. Instead dirt and debris may be the likely culprits since they obstruct the drainage tubes or the drain channel that are part of the sunroof's water management system. Once these are obstructed, the water backs up and heads for the nearest escape, which may be to the interior of your car. The following instructions are to help you repair a leaking car sun roof.
  1. 1)Use a non-abrasive cleaner with a soft cloth to clean the glass panel and the seal on the outside of the car.2)Open the sunroof after opening the vent shade. Allow the sunroof to open to the vent position but do not let it slide backwards.Wipe and clean the trough that is around the opening of the sunroof. 3)Use a wet cloth to remove any debris that may be preventing a tight seal between the trough and the sunroof's seal.Inspect the seal. 4)Look for any cracks in the seal. If you find any, you will need to replace the seal. Contact the car manufacturer or a repair shop to replace the seal.Check the drainage tubes.5) You can use a small cable or even a coat hanger to gently probe around for a few inches to see if there are any clogs or standing water in the tubes.6)Use a thin cable or coat hanger wire again to try to clear the drainage tubes if they are clogged. Make sure whatever you use does not have a sharp end and apply only a little pressure.7)Verify that any of the standing water in the drainage tubes went down by poking a dry thin cable or wire down an inch or and pulling the wire back out.8)Check that the clogs are completely gone in the drainage tubes by pouring a small amount of water into the tubes.

    How to Check a Sunroof for Leaks There's nothing nicer than a sunroof in your car, especially on a spring or summer day. Open the sunroof and enjoy the fresh breeze. But check a sunroof carefully for leaks before you buy a used car. It's just good business. 1)Open the sunroof to check for leaks when you are shopping for a used vehicle. First of all, make sure the sunroof opens smoothly and closes securely. A good, snug fit with no cracks or lop-sided setting is a good indication that it won't leak.2)Look carefully around the inside edges of the roof of the car where the sunroof opens. Check a sunroof for leaks by making sure there are no signs of rust or corroded metal around the opening edges. Of course, examine this area while the sunroof is open so that you see all areas on the sunroof opening's edges.3)Check the ceiling inside the vehicle when you check a sunroof for leaks. Look for signs of water stains around the inside ceiling lining of the car at the sunroof's site. Ceiling fabric at the site of the sunroof or around the area of the sunroof that looks spotted or has slight color variations may indicate a sunroof leak.4)See if the car's headliner (the ceiling fabric) is sagging. A leaking sunroof may cause water to run inside the headliner. Water buildup causes the headliner to sag over time.5)Examine the floor of the vehicle carefully when you check a sunroof for leaks. Damp carpet or a mildew smell may indicate a leaking sunroof. Also, look for water stains on seats where water may drip down from the sunroof. This will help.

I have this leak in my car and i just dnt know


There is a drain tube from the sunroof that may be loose or broken, and leaking into the vehicle.

You will have to remove the headliner to access the tube and check it.

The rear window may have a bad seal as well - allowing water to seep in.

In either case - the headliner must be removed to pinpoint the leak.

Wet Headliner


You likely have a water leak around the 3rd brake light mounted on the top rear of the cab. I had this same issue on my 96 Ranger Supercab and found that the foam seal had gone bad and was allowing water to leak into the back of the headliner around the light fixture. It ended up soaking the headliner from one side to the other as the headliner acts as a 'wick'. You can repair this issue by either replacing the sealant around the 3rd brake light or replacing the brake light. There are two screws which secure the 3rd brake light assembly to the back of the cab. Remove these and it will pop right out. I upgraded mine to an LED light when I replaced it. That solved two issues at once as I'll never need to change a bulb there again. If you want to be cheaper you can not replace the light and just seal it with rubber silicone sealer.
