Question about 2001 Pontiac Grand Am SE

3 Answers

Ar leaks water under the carpet on the passenger side. Mechanic said the windshield leaks. Replaced windshield. No sign of water leaking there. Windshield guy thought the car was missing and inside air filter which is under the hood under a panel that must be removed just under the wipers. Is there such a thing as an inside air filter on the 2001 Grand Am?

Some cars have cabin air filters for the cliamte control system. It would not cause a leak. Look for a grommet loose or a seam leaking. Lift up the carpet and follow the stain to its source.

I don't think your car has a cabin air filter. To double check you can call the local parts store and see if they have a listing for one. Have you been running the A/C lately? The drain tube could be clogged causing the water to run inside, instead of through the firewall and onto the ground.

Some have it as an option but the most likely cause is the evaprorater drain is plugged and backing up into car.when you run the air do you see a puddle uder your car and if so is it steady or do you see one at all??? just drips when it is hot out isnt enough.

Water drips onto carpet on passengers side front foot area. Can be seen dripping from plastic air ducting above foot area. how to figure out how its getting in. Have replaced windshield.


You can only have 2 issues dripping water onto the passenger floor board. First being a clogged drip line for the ac evaporator. The other is a leaking heater core. Figuring out which one is the issue is fairly easy.

If your vehicle has anti freeze in it when you turn the defrosters on it will smell sweet. If it does you have a leaking heater core. If it does not then the drip line is clogged.

To clear the drip line get under the vehicle and snake the drip line on the firewall. It usually is a 90 degree rubber or plastic piece on the passenger side about a third of the way up the firewall. A leaking heater core means it has to be replaced and not really a job for someone that is not exsperienced.

Where are the chassis drain plugs on a 2003 Pontiac bonneville? My car leaks in the trunk and onto the floor on the front passenger floor


Your trunk leak most likely is rubber seal that runs the perimeter of trunk when trunk lid is open. Leak on pass floor can be a combination of things. Heater core or if car has sunroof, there is drains that run down windshield posts. Carpet will be wet and sticky if heater core is leaking (not to mention coolant level low) If it's sunroof drain, car has to be put on a lift and drains blown out with compressed air.

I smell antifreze thru the air vents but theres no leaks o n the water pump


That is normally a sign that the heater core is leaking. You will probably also find a wet spot under the carpet on the passenger's side. It needs to be replaced. Hope this helps.

Rain water leak


Did you have the windshield replaced recently? This is typically caused by faulty installation of a windshield. Sometimes it can be fixed by adding windshield sealant (polyurethene, not silicone) where the windshield is adhered to the subframe - most likely along the bottom edge.

Water Leak UNDER the Vehicle.


It is definately your AC water outlet. The hose must have shifted sort of.

Carpet on passenger side gets wet


The drain from the a/c under the dash is plugged up and needs to be cleared. If you check from under the vehicle, u should be able to find the end of the drain tube on the passenger side, behind or near the front wheel. Carefully run a wire up the tube to dislodge the obstruction (goop build up). You can also use compressed air.

Floor on passenger side gets wet when running air conditioner


I have a 2006 Fusion with the same issue and I fixed it for less than $2. There is a drain tube that goes from the passenger floor board out through the firewall to allow water to drain under the vehicle. However, water can travel along the underside and seep back into the vehicle. I went to a hardware store and bought a few inches of 5/8" tubing. I simply slipped this onto the drain and the water now flows down the tube and safely away from the interior of the car. Been dry ever since.
