Question about 2002 Oldsmobile Alero

1 Answer

Water dripping from 1 inch diameter hose on passenger side at back : nothing hooked to it hangs downward. Should there be something attached? There is a smaller hose beside it that runs to rad. I think. There doesn't seem to be anyother loose ends to hook up to it.

With A/C operating, why is there water on the driver side floor?

Alan, look for a dislodged or plugged drain hose. A/C makes water normally, through condensation. This water normally drips on to the street. Look for a black hose, about 1/2 inch in diameter. Often gets kicked out of place by a passenger, unknowingly.

My camaro is over heating and the coolant is leaking onto pasanger floor inside car, i need to bypass the heater core but i dont know what two hoes to connect or what the heater core looks like or where it...

Two hoses will run into your passenger side firewall area under the hood. Probably within inches of eachother. They will have hose clamps or clips of some sort. They will be about an inch and a half in diameter. Pull them off and prestone or water should come out of both. Hook them together.
Heater core looks like a very small radiator. With an inlet and outlet. Made of brass or something similar. Sits in your heater duct after the blower moter.

Floor board on passenger side wet after running a/c unit 2005 ford taurus

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, its 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!

Water pooling in passenger floor board of 2002 Toyota Prius after running A/C. To the amount of an inch a day, I've been soaking it up but I can't get it all. It just keeps coming and I really...

there is a drain hose at the bottom of the plenium for the heater/AC airbox, it is attached to a nipple and the hose runs along the firewall, passenger side (inside the engine compartment)-it is plugged up and is backing up into the plenium, hence your water problem. If you cannot do it any decent repair shop can fix it in less than 15 minutes by putting the car on a lift, finding the hose (it hangs down and really is the only one in that location) and pushing a thin, long object into the hose to clear it out so it will drain. You can do it yourself if you can jack the car up on the passenger side, then place a jackstand under the subframe to hold the car up (do not go under the car with just a jack holding the car up!)-look up where the passenger's feet would be if they could extend through the passenger compartment into the engine compartment (need a flashlight)-have a hanger cut, straight, to push through the hose-fixed...

There is water on passenger side front and rear

There is a rubber drain hose that should be attached to the bottom of the cooling/ blower unit on the passenger side of the car underneath the dash. This hose drains the condensation from the cooling unit. the hose may have gotten disconnected or it may be clogged up. I have had cases where a dirt dobber built a nest up inside the hose and clogged it up. Check this hose it may be the cause of the water puddling up in your car.

Condensation from airconditioning not draining properly

You are correct in assuming that the drain is not working. generally the drain can be found on the engine side of the firewall on the passenger side, located about even with the bottom of the heater box inside the car.. It usually looks like a black hose stub usually bent to a 90 degree angle downward, protruding a couple of inches from the firewall and not connected to anything. Work the hose with your fingers to make sure the end is open and usually it will begin to drain. You can also stick something into it but don't go overboard with this or you can damage something inside the unit. If really plugged, I have gone as far as using an adapter made from a short hose, attached to a shop-vac to pull debris from there. If all else fails, you will need to remove and clean the heater assembly...this is a difficult and time consuming job, but 99% of the time unnecessary.

Water leaking passenger side firewall

This sure sounds like the AC condensate drain is plugged, if it is allot of condensation water builds up in the heater/AC case and leaks in on the passenger side, the drain is located on the pass side under the hood down low on the firewall, it is most cases it is a rubber nipple about 1/2 inch in diameter sticking out of the firewall with a little flapper valve in it, stick your finger in it or a stick and see if water drains out.
