When first driving forward there is a sound of rushing water heard from passenger front firewall area. is there an area that water can be trapped.

Yes there is. When your a/c runs it creates condensation which collects under the evaporator in a small collector, and then drains onto the ground. This is the puddle of water you will see under a parked car if the a/c has been running. If the drains are blocked the water will not drain away and you will hear water sloshing about. If it gets too full, the water will overflow and you will get water onto the front mats and you might get wet feet. You will need to find the drains under the car and clear what ever is blocking them. It is usually road grime and dirt. It might also be the drains at the front of the windscreen are blocked, although this usually wont end up in the car.

Mercury marine

Could be blocked drain pipes for the sun roof; try blowing the out using compressed air or check the fire wall and the bottom of your wind shield for traces of water.

Why is there water on passanger floor after a heavy rain?

Check for leafs that are blocking drain holes on both ends . Air inlet cowl in front of wind shield. This blockage would cause water to back up and enter the Hvac air inlet.

Suzuki vitara ecu problems caused by water leaking under dash

Yes. It could cause the water to seep into the passenger compartment thru seams in the sheetmetal or the heater box instead of draining onto the ground.

Can't find evaporator drain tube. 1999 cadi deville

UNDER THE CAR, passenger side under the heater case you should see a rubber tube sticking out, If the rubber is gone then you will see only the plastic tube that sticks out Sometimes if the rubber is missing when going on the road wind will force the condensation back into the car and cause water to collect on the passenger side floor. the drain can also stop up clean out carefully with a small wire

Remove the wind shield wiper surround and there you will see deep wells which should drain out of rubber valves.The valves are blocked causing water to fill in the wells.Push a wire through the rubbers to unblock them.

Water on floor board

The drain tubes are a definate possibility, but, usually you will see a water mark on the headliner. The panels are fairly easy to remove, if it has assist handles you will need to remove the rubber or plastic plugs that cover the screws, then remove the screw and gently pull out and upward on the panel, it has metal clips that snap into the sheet metal but it also will have a plastic hook to locate the bottom of the panel, you don't want to break this. This will allow you to check the drain tubes. Also don't rule out the windsheild itself. Especailly if it has ever been replaced. Sometimes there is an air bubble in the sealer/adhesive tube they use to secure the windsheild, if not caught and filled in it will cause a water and or air leak (this happens from the factory too).

Ford Taurus 1996-wind screen water squirter not working

You will need a test light/probe to check wether you have power to the windscreen washer bottle motor.If you have power at the motor and it doesnt pump you will need to replace it.Because the wipers are still working its unlikely to be a power supply issue.Can you hear the motor trying to pump when you activate it?If you can hear motor humming then you may have blocked nozzles.Usualy a small sewing needle poked down the squirter nozzles will clear them.Also make sure your water squirter hoses are not blocked and havnt fallen off.

Leaking sunroof

Had same problem with 91 Prelude, after rain, water would leak from moonroof, especially when stopping, having a wet neck on the way to work is not fun! Solution was to remove the small screens and restrictor caps on the drain hoses. The hoses can be acessed through the trunk behind the quarter panel cover on either side, just have a can ready for the skanky water to drain once the plugs are removed. When all clear, the drains should drain out right behind the mud flaps in the rear on each side. There are fron drains as well, these run behind the driver and passanger kick panels and drain around the mud flaps in the front.
