My 2000 ford crown Victoria. Have water on the rear passenger side floor. What could be the problem


Hey Grady..
There are few things that could cause the water intrusion... Is the carpet in the front floorboard wet?.. ..Has it rained recently? This will rule out window seals leaking? Have you opened the trunk and checked to see if water is in the trunk? OK..IF it has not rained, no water in the trunk, AND the front floorboards are wet, then the heater core is leaking...

Grady.. sounds like its either the window seals or the door seals.. check for damaged door seals, cracked window seals..

HI, HAVE A 96 CROWN VIC. THE BREAKS STARTED TO GET A BIT SOFT, NOT MANY MILES AGO.


Yes, in a 1996, almost everything is likely to need an overhaul, not just the master cylinder. The pumping thing points to having sprung a leak in the brake system which has let in a load of air.

I'd bet you have one or more of these gremlins

- worn brake cylinder rubbers (all of them)
- corroded brake cylinder walls
- water in the brake fluid
- air in the brake lines
- old and cracked brake flexible hoses (probable source of the air leak)

So check out all that, lest you have a horrible crash, which we don't want.

You either have a leak from the pump area or one of your hoses is leaking. Start your motor and watch for where it is leaking from.

Got a 96 crown vic that runs but smoking white smoke from under the hood and it runs hot ....the resevoir is full so there is no leak there and i replaced the thermostat but it didnt work


you ether have a coolant leak or one of these are the problem thermastat,fan clutch,water pump,radiator, try this start car when it reachs normal temp open hood and pinch the top radiator hose if it is hot water is flowing thermastat is good now open radiator with a towel slowly while it is runing see if the water is moving if it is you water pump and radiator are good, now at some point in this time you should have heard the fan get loud if not your fan clutch is not work it mounts to the front of your water pump and is normal to go out because they lose about 250rpm a year which does not give them much of a life, dont forget to check your heater hoses they could be leaking

Water in the back seat!


I have a 96 crown vic and had the same problem. There's a drain for the firewall that causes the leak. Water flows down the windshield to the drain and out the bottom to the car. Ford put the drain on the inside of the firewall and if a gasket fails the water will come in the car. The drain is on the front passenger side of the car. The best way to get at it is to jack up the car and remove the front passenger tire. If you pull back the plastic wheel well, you will see the drain on the firewall of the car. Its actually a very easy fix, just use some GE silicon around the gasket area. My back floor would flood out when it rained. I pulled the carpet out and the passenger seat, but you'll never find the leak from the inside of the car or under the dash, it's just to tight. I guarantee this will fix the problem.
