Water under pasenger side carpet not from heater core

Find the drain for the A/C located under the hood, firewall, nearest the bottom of the firewall. It will be a black tube and if plugged, the condensation from use of the A/C (which also turns on when the defrost is used to evaporate moisture) will back up into the blower box and drain onto the floor. Long term effects include; rotted floor board, mildew, shorted blower motor and loss of effective defrosting, heating and cooling. Use a coat hanger or other long thin item to clear the drain and allow the water to drain. The system will be much more efficient. Let me know if you need anything else.

How can i determine if the water pump is working? i replaced the radiator and the thermostat. The car continues to over heat. any ideas? Also how can i bleed the air out of the system? could the water...

If you squeeze the upper radiator hose and it feels like the coolant is running thru it, your pump is working. The system should bleed itself within a few minutes if you keep the radiator and reservoir full. If it continues to bubble, you have a blown head gasket. :-(

Let us know if you need more help.

I have a 2006 Toyota Highlander. I just got it back from the dealership to get timing belt, water pump, and steering column replaced. When I checked under the hood I heard and saw bubbles in the coolant...

They may have used a chemical flush when they drained the system during it's service. It is normal to have some bubbles sometimes. Are you having overheating issues, heater not working, anything of this nature? Turn the heater on during normal operating temperature and drive around the block. Now, since it is hot outside, one trip should be sufficient. Don't kill yourself, lol. Look under the hood and see if this may have cured it. To have some bubbles is not catastrophic. As long as you are not having any issues, carry on. Please let me know if you are having any issues.

MY 99 NAVIGATOR WONT DEFROST THE WINDSHIELD MORE THAN TWO INCHES UP. also stinks when i turn on the defroster

sounds like the defroster water drain plug is pluged, its under the car, once cleaned out it will release the sticky water and the defroster depends on the air con to remove moisture from the caben and defrost the windshied. Once you find the little rubber drain and clean with finger or compressed air you should be ok

When the ac is running it makes a bubbling gargling sound. when the car takes off from a stop you can hear water rushing and rolling about the engine compartment.

Sounds like you might have a plugged drain hose from your condensor overflow reservoir. All of the water that drips off the condensor while you run your AC has to go somewhere. It's located under the passenger floor board and if it's not draining properly you can get a lot of water sitting in there.

Sounds like water gergling under hood

your AC condensation drain is plugged, go under the truck on the passengers side and near the bottom of the engine firewall you will find a tube, clear it out with a coat hangar.

I have a 2006 Mitsubishi Endeavor

There are drain holes, maybe tubes that you can check. Some are in the doors too. Check under the hood and where the wipers are for leaves, etc.
