SOURCE: Focus - rusted rocker panels

this is a very costly repair. I would get estimates for repair before the area gets to bad. After repair have the car undercoated and the panels sealed on the inside.

Most likely the sunroof is leaking. You can permenently seal it or replace the seal. The last roof seal I replaced costs $175.00 for the part.

My 98 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP is leaving parallel (front-to-back where the tires are) yellow-orangish stains in my driveway. I can't find any leaks.


Sure sounds like rusty rocker panels.When it rains water at the windshield drains into the rockers and out along the bottom of the rocker panels.If they are showing rust on the outside they are rusted on the inside.

What would make a rocker arm a little loose


rain water will not get into the oil unless you had the rocker cover off and working on the engine outside in the rain.
water in the oil is coolant getting into the oil either from a head gasket problem or corrosion holes behind the water pump impeller. If there are loose rockers when running then there may be a blockage in the hydraulic followers for those rockers or there is wear in the rocker bushes and on the rocker shaft.

What causes wet passenger side floor in 2000 chrysler 300m?


Water.
You may have a rusted floor kicking up water, or a door seal may be leaking. check for both. In my 96 convertible it comes from the rocker panel filling up with water after a rain and it spills into the rear floorboards. It could be similar, although I don't see how a rocker can fill up like that in a hardtop. Check it out anyway, and run a coat hanger through the weep holes between the rocker and the floorboard where they are welded together They form a ridge on an angle like this: \\ on the lip and forms a small tube. This tube gets clogged with stuff and has to be routed out with that coat hanger from time to time. Eventually it will rust out and the problem will go away!!

these sensors are a new thing just a few years out. they are still working out all the bugs, also you can try having the sensor replaced, if its glued to the window to much glue can affect preformance.

Where are ports for water located my sebring is taking in water somewhere i hear it sloshing around in rear of vehicle after rain..?


drain holes are located in the pinch weld under rocker panel. water u hear sloshing most likely trapped in 1/4 panels beside back seat.if u look under car at the pinch weld under rocker panel u will see an opening in the pinch welds approx 12 -24 inches in front of rear tires. use screwdriver to push through opening and clear any blockage that may be there.

When it rains water in in the rear sloshing


The 1997 Sebring convertible has rocker panels (the metal that goes from front to back wheel well and directly under the doors) that have five drain channels each.  The sloshing noise occurs when the drain holes plug up and a rocker panel fills up with water.  Often, the water will then leak into the right rear footwell, soaking the carpet.  A quick fix is to locate the drain holes and run a flat (unused) twistem-tie (they come with your trash bags) through each hole several times.  Commonly, doing so will result in a deluge of water, along with spider web parts, leaf parts, and whatever else washed into the rocker panel fromo the rear window.

To find the drain holes, just 1) lie under the car with a flashlight, or 2) sit alongside the car with one of those mirrors that come on a telescoping stick.  Since I don't like to lie in dirty water, I use the mirror to guide my twistem-tie (or ice pick or spring wire or whatever) into each hole.  NOTE:  the drain holes are flat and run at a 30 degree angle from back to front on the right side and from front to back on the left side.
