Question about 2001 Cadillac Sts

My 2000 STS takes on a lot of water into the trunk

It's not coming from underneath because it won't be driven during some rainfalls. I've poured water over the rubber mouldings to see if they leek through. Maybe I'm not pouring enough water.

    I also have a 2000 STS and have lots of water in the trunk and no its not from pressure washing the car, I have also had a leak in the front drivers side floor board and it was coming from a factory seal that the factory acts like they didn't do.. such as put enough sealant on the joint under the windshield there are a lot of sts out there with this problem.. GM wont help so take it to a dealer who might give a heck and have them look for weld problems in the frame under the windshield ?? I am waiting for the weather to break to check my out again another leak and smell of mildew... crappppp

Water In My Trunk

Hi Gregory:
2 issues:
1) water getting in
2)Water not getting out.

1) Water is not supposed to get in so you need to track down the leak. Check rubber around trunk lid, rear window seal.
2) Trunk is not intended to contain water, even on a temporary basis, so drain holes are not normally installed.

Fix the leak and you won't need to have drain holes.

2004 chevy blazer drove through lots of water on the freeway but now it won;t start?

It IS possible that you went thru a bunch a water that may have slipped underneath the back hood seal, which could of gotten inside the distributor cap located right under the seal. Symptoms of this: will turn over, but not start. An old trick is to take the cap off and spray WD40 under the cap on the contacts and the rotor. The WD in WD40 stands for Water Displacement, so completely safe for this use, used it many times myself. In my case it was on purpose offroading in mud/water. :) Careful while taking the cap off, the tabs that the screws go into are plastic! Will break easily if not careful when re-installing.

Losing water

the best way to find out is to put water in it with food coloring in it so when you look from underneath, you wont come out with antifreeze all over you. It also depends on how often you have to add water, freeze plugs will pour water and water pumps "weap tears" and takes longer but either case you are risking head gasket damage because those vehicles have aluminum heads and it doesnt take much heat to warp a head/valve and/or blow head gasket.

A 1996 Buick Century Costom with a wet floor (a puddle of water)in the back seat. I have mystery water in my passenger back seat. I have poured water on the car to dupicate rain and find the leak. The door...

You forgot to add WIND to your experiment! Poured water is not driven water and sometiomes the pressure and VACUUM of the moving vehicle is the problem. As you drive a vacuum is created around any area not directly exposed to the airflow. This can "pull-up" seals that are tight when you are still, and also there is a possiblity that the water came from underneath your car!!

Water coming through tailgate on 2005 Honda Odyssey

Definitely problem with gaskets if there is no hole in the body of the car. You mentioned your rear lock then check the gasket around the lock.

1997 Toyota Camry LE. During wet weather, water

Most of the problems come when its raining and if its not being driven and water still comes in then its the bonnet rubber and if when its being driven then its due to the rear wheel throughing up water under wheelarch and somewhere theres a crack in the weld or somewhere and it will find its way in..
So if not using it clean it out and when rain stops look inside no rain no leak Have a goodday

Lexus ES300 trunk leaks when it rains

This may sound odd but if you can put a small person in the trunk with a flashlight while you pour water in the areas suspected, they can trace the leaking area, believe it or not I used to use this method while I was a Ford mechanic. Otherwise, maybe you can apply clear or black silicone to the area or remove the screw or bolt and coat it with silicone and replace it.
