SOURCE: I have a 1998 Saturn.

you need to find that leak, is the leak visible? if its not from radiator or the reservoir, the only other place I could think you can lose water is the head gasket. It happens to high miles and hard driver. 100k miles would likely be a head gasket. Leaking head gasket will also cause the engine temperature to rise and run super hot. antifreeze will leak through the head gasket down to your oil pan mixing oil and water. Check your oil by pulling the dip stick and see if you have oil mix with water; it will have a slimy looking colors, oil is light color and it should never be black. if it black than change your oil and inspect it afterward when the car has been running for while. when engine really hot cause the heat to effect the starter not to engage or start or engine is too hot to run. repairing head gasket could run anywere from 500-800 bucks.

Check the oil and brake fluid level and see what's low. Also helpful to look under there and see exactly where the leak is coming from. If the brake feels low or spongy I suggest you do not drive the car as if it runs out of fluid you will have severely limited braking ability and can do more damage to the brake system. (often more expensive than towing). If you are in a warm climate and are using the air conditioner, it may just be water (condensation from evaporator)..get some on your hand and feel and smell it. Not difficult to differentiate an oil from water!!

SOURCE: CLEAR FLUID LEAKING INSIDE CAR

The a/c evaporator has a drain tube that allows moisture to drain out of the car. The tube will stick down on the lower, passenger side of the engine just in front of the fire wall. You can usually only see it from below the car. Sometimes these drain tubes can get clogged with leaves or other debris from the road which doesn't allow it to drain so it backs up and leaks water onto the passenger side floor. Try to locate this drain tube and clear it out. Compressed air works pretty good for this.

Good Luck!

Your line runs from the reservoir in the fender well, up through the hose around the strut plate on top, through the bezel to the wipers. If you have no leaks, Replace the washer motor. If you fill it and it leaks, fix the leaks. To access the reservoir. Remove the tire and inner fender well on the passenger side.

Rear window washer fluid fails to pump. Wiper operates okay.


Okay is the washer in the same canister as the windshield? If so? Check for leaks . On most Dodge and Jeeps there is a rubber line coming from the engine compartment to the back window. I would check that for leaks. also check for blocked sprayer on the wiper. If it still doesn't work? Get another pump from the Junkyard.

Water leak on passenger side on 99 chevy s 10 not anterfreeze, leaks when not being driven


there is only one thing that leaks water there, that is the AC condensation drain, water forms as part of the AC cooling the evaporator core, this water must be drained away or it will flood onto passenger area, so there is a drain on the passenger side at bottom of firewall, will leak allot of water depending on how humid the air is.
