Plugged A/C condensor drain

No water drips from the A/C condensor when the vehicle is shut off after a hot day. When I restart, then I get blast of hot, moist, musty air, which tells me there is a plug somewhere in the drain tube. PROBLEM>>> I can't find the drain tube or drain hole to unplug it! Help!

Look on the firewall and under the truck near the firewall -- there's a hose there which let's excess condensation drain out... once you find it, use compressed air to clear it.

Water in the passenger side is getting wet


Its always helpful to post a year make model and engine size....

Sounds like the problem may be a plugged EVAP drain. When you run your air conditioning the EVAP core will pull moisture out of the air as it cools it. That moisture will drip to the bottom of the housing and flow out a drain that typically goes through the firewall. If you have ever watched a parked car running with the A/C on on a hot humid day you will see the dripping of water. This is normal.

I would bet that this is not happening on your vehicle?

Air conditioner causing water inside front and rear of vehicle


on your airconditioning unit on the fire wall under the hood...you have a drain hose to let water out ..if that is plugged it will run inside the vehicle...but what causes this usually is low freon...134A..its the gas inside the lines....when ac is running..if its low it will freeze up in the AC condensors in the dash...turn white which is frost..if it gets frosty then it will melt thus causing water which in turn runs into the inside of the vehicle..that is if the drain tube hose is pluged...suggestions >> get under car and look for a tube..rubber...insert a wire or something up there to see if dirt comes out...do this without car running...someplace on right side glove compartment area under car has to be a tube..tube goes up and down vertically probably two feet long but you will only see the tip of the hose,,maybe a couple inches,,,only way to find it is get under and behind right front wheel and look upward .find it and make sure it isn't kinked or anything as such,,plugged...then try again...the cause is low freon 134A...stop and think,,,on a hot day when AC is running,,,you drive a bit and then park...you come back out and there is water behind the right front wheel ,,,if that is happening..you have an open tube...but if water still inside during the puddling outside....then a loose or cracked housing which contains the unit...shouldn't be too hard to fix

I hear water swooshing from inside my car


If the swooshing sound is up in the dash area..and you have not lost any coolant.. chances are you have a plugged AC/Defroster system drain hose.

On a hot humid summer day when folks are running the AC you may have noticed puddles of water under your car and others. This is the excess moisture being pulled out of the passenger compartment. It collects and drips out of the drain under the car.

You probably don't have that puddle forming anymore.. the drain is clogged. Next time you have it in for an oil change at a decent shop.. have them locate that hose..give it a blast of air.. to unclog it.. and drain that water..

If the sound is coming from somewhere else.. best to locate it and drain it.. or clean the drain holes..doors etc..

Best of luck!

Need to know why water is leaking from under dashboard on passenger side of car


could be that when the air is on the condensor is freezing up and melting and causing a drip. make sure you have it on recirculate. outside air in high humidity will freeze up condensor. Also does it smell like anifreeze if so heator core is getting ready to go out

Is it normal for a car to drip water on the ground after running the air conditioner?


Yes, The air conditioner evaporator core inside the vehicle is very cold when the a/c is operating and moisture will condense on the outside of it, especially on a humid day. This moisture then trickles down the sides of the core and collects in the plastic housing beneath the core where it then escapes through the evaporator housing drain tube and drips on the ground beneath the passenger side of the chassis. The more humidity in the air the more moisture you will see dripping onto the ground. If the little drip hose should ever get plugged up this water then will overflow the housing and drip on the passenger side carpet so if you ever have that problem you'll know what the cause is.

How do I clear the AC condensate drain on my 2008 CX-9?


The first place I would look is on the firewall from under the hood. Toward the passenger side, (I think) you should see a rubber nozzle coming out of the firewall. This is the condensor drain, and chances are of course, it's clogged up. You should be able to easily remove it. Upon doing so, the condensor should drain the collected water. Then, you'll have a good oportunity to clean the nozzle and put it back in.

I hope this helps you with your problem! :)

When the ac is running it makes a bubbling gargling sound. when the car takes off from a stop you can hear water rushing and rolling about the engine compartment.


Sounds like you might have a plugged drain hose from your condensor overflow reservoir. All of the water that drips off the condensor while you run your AC has to go somewhere. It's located under the passenger floor board and if it's not draining properly you can get a lot of water sitting in there.

Air conditioning


Run the A/C, and look under the vehicle for water to be seen dripping out on the road. If no water is dripping, you have a blocked A/C condensate drain tube. This drains the water that the A/C removes from the air in the pass compartment (humidity), and drains it outside of the vehicle. Look under the dasjh, pass side, towards the center. The tube runs thru the body. It must be clean or water will back up and eventually leak inside your vehicle.
