    Thnaks Matthew. I dont think it's the exhaust pipe, the pipe is plastic and probably 1/2 inch diameter.

SOURCE: there is water in the

When your car is left sitting for extended periods of time, oil will leak into the combustion chamber past the valve guides and this causes blue smoke mainly when you start the car. Black smoke is caused by overfuelling and this can be caused by a sticky choke or cold start solenoid. The water is likely a separate problem and could come from the air intake or even the windshield seal - you should dry out the footwell and then apply a strong water jet in these areas and see if the water penetrates.

2000 mazda protege water leak under passenger side. A/C not used. Can't see any water in engine compartment or on firewall. Floor carpet is dry. Just drips from big bolts on frame under pass. side.


Possible the hot water line to the heater that has leaked from the water jacket or the connection at the heater pipe. You must be able to use a good observation lamp to look into this section so that the joint from where the leaks appears is located. Possible that the gland or the connector can be tightened to stop the leak.

We have a 2005 civic and water is leaking onto the passenger side floor when making left turn and at other times. We hear water sloshing around in the dash. We are looking for the hose that drains water...


Could be the drain tube is partially clogged. It is usually located on the fire-wall or down towards the floor pan under the car. It is usually close to where the A/C lines go thru the fire-wall. About 1/2 inch diameter sticking straight out but may have a 90 degree elbow pointing down.
Also, it's been extra hot and humid all over and moisture could be freezing inside the unit when on MAX A/C, then suddenly melting when switched to normal. This opens the outside air door and allows warm/hot air into the unit instead of recirculating the cold air inside the car. The drain may not be able to handle a large, sudden quantity of water.
Perform a "driveway" test. Open the hood, start engine and run the A/C on normal with the windows or doors open. Locate the drain tube by looking for water dripping. Once located twist 2 or 3 pipe cleaners together and verify the tube is clean. Then close the doors/windows and switch to MAX A/C. Check for water dripping. If it stops dripping, water is freezing inside and now you know why!

How to stop the ac from leaking at the rear right of the engine.The car is a 2008 impala.


If you are referring to water dripping under the car as long as it is only when A/c is on and the water feels cold..this is normal. The drain tube is located on the bottom of the evaporator case and most cars will drip wated from that tube. Sometimes if that tube gets clogged up, you will actually have water leaking into the car on the passenger side floor.

2003 suburban passenger side carpet gets wet when it rains


Just fixed the same issue on our 2004 Suburban. Turned out it was just that the drain for the rear A/C was clogged with dirt (located right behind right rear tire -- above the exhaust pipe). All it took was a paperclip, straightened out, poking gently in this narrow rubber ****... and the water came gushing out (floor was wet at the time). If you do it when the floor is dry, you would have to turn on the rear A/C for a while and make sure the condensate drips out of the drain.

2002 suburban has leak in driver side rear floor. Cannot see where water would be coming from?


We had same--water on driver side rear floor (soaked!). Driver side front floor seemed dry until feeling UNDER rug, was slightly damp. We found the location of TWO leaks causing this.

Leak #1 was through the parking brake line/cable seal; Recaulked with silicone. Removed plastic trim on floor between floor and door to reveal metal channel filled with water.

Leak #2 was where the door meets the car, near the hinge. It was the accordian-looking tube housing the wiring for the door. The big, rubber, circular plug connecting it to the main part of the car had come loose and water ran down through that, into the SAME metal channel filled with water from leak #1; will seal with silicone.

Note: We found that the channel filled extensively near the front door, BUT the carpet edge from the floor near the rear seat was dipping into it, wicking it up to the rear floor. Also, upon acceleration, the water in the channel gushed toward the back, thus soaking the rear carpet.

These leaks were found by removing all plastic trim (covering edges of carpet by doors), then one of us pouring water into specific areas of the exterior of the vehicle, and the other one watching closely with a flashlight for any signs of dripping.

Water leak on the passenger rug


You may have a buildup of A/C condensate water in the A/C cooler box. Start the car up, and run the A/C; you should start to see water dripping out from under the car onto the street. If not, the A/C condensate tube may be blocked or dislodged from the A/C box. The water then leaks out of the box onto your floor. The drain is on the pass side, under the dash, close to the center console. The pipe goes thru the body. This is a very common issue.
