If it is antifreeze and water mix (you can tell by the smell) ten it is a bad heater core. If it is plain water, The drain for your air conditioner is likely clogged. There is a rubber hose that runs ou of the bottom of the firewall in the engine compartment. Try to push a long pipe cleaner into this tube. Most likely you will get some water coming out immediately i it is clogged. Let me know if this helps :)

Driver side back seat floorboard soaking wet just replace radiator and thermostat and it's overheating what could be the problem on a 2001 Ford Mustang

Is the floor also wet under the dash? This could be a lot of things why your car is running hot. Could be a head gasket, cracked cylinder head or block, stopped or restricted radiator, water pump impeller faulty with broken vanes, stopped up heater core, cracked water jacket and or a leaking intake manifold gasket. So as I stated could be a slew of causes. You'll have to actually diagnose the cause by checking from the easiest cause to the hardest.

Leaking Fluid

Hi Sarah, I'm glad to help!

Sarah, you can rule out the A/C because the A/C wasn't running when the problem occurred. You can also rule out any fluids from the engine are transmission for they only leak on the ground not inside the vehicle. What you have is a water leak coming in from the rain. Here's a good way to find out where its coming from. Take your home garden hose and run water from the top of the vehicle down the windshield and watch under the dash board to see if you can see where it is coming from. NOTE: You may have to move the hose in different areas until the water comes into the vehicle. Once you find where the leak is then have the glass company repair the leak. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Sarah.

Water leaks onto the passenger floorboard during heavy rain

Floor plug or plugs have fallen out most likely.There Should be some plastic plugs under the floor board outside. Look to visualy check to insure they are still in one piece.

A busted heater core will flood the passenger side floorboard when the heat is turned on.

My 1993 ford Ranger was in an accident, and now will not start..what could be the problem?

The inertia switch has disabled the fuel pump. You will need to find the reset button. On most fords it is in the passenger side foot well kickpanel, or just under the dash where the carpet and the dash meet. I will try to find the exact location for you.

Looking where i can find which fuse controls the power windows on a 1995 ford ranger

Look in the fuse box - this is usually located under the dash on the driver side, just to the left and right above floorboard or left of steering column under dash - they have also been located in the glove compartment - there should also be a relay for this under the dash (black box near battery) - on the inside of both the fuse panel and the relay box, there will be a diagram of which you can use to locate the fuse and relay.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Water in floorboard

Either the sealant that was used in putting your windshield in has began to fail, or there may be a larger opening under the vents, or on the firewall in the engine compartment. Look under the vent slats/holes under the windshield wipers. Look in the bulkhead that separates the engine from the dashboard(With the hood up). Those are the only ways water is getting in. Seal it with an expanding style sealer
