You are correct. The water that you are seeing is the condensate that is drained out on the street when the A/C is on. Look at the passenger side of the car, under the dash, close to the center. You will see a black rubber tube coming out of a box, and it will poke thru the firewall, towards the front on the passenger side. Remove it, expect to see water drain out on your floor. Clean it by running water thru it with a garden hose or something like that. Reinsert it and poke it back thru the firewall. This is very common for the drains to plug up.

SOURCE: brake fluid leaking alot and now noticed fluid from rear tires

if your car has rear drum then the wheel cylinders could be leaking and in need of replacement. If it has rear disc brakes then it could be leaking fluid where the brake hose goes into the caliper or the brake hose my be worn or have a hole in it. Or it could be a a brake line. You should have it checked because you don't want air getting into the braking system.

SOURCE: Rear differential leaking on 2003 Toyota Matrix AWD

No, not expensive.....no, not a lot of work.

Just make sure you have enough differential fluid to replentish what you drain out. All you need is a seal replacement if it is leaking from the casing....it is in the rear of your car, underneath....in between the tires....looks like a round, metal case. Look to see if it is leaking from around the edges.

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

You need to have a cooling system pressure test done.
A service technician will apply pressure to the cooling system and may add a dye to the coolant to help identify the leaking area. Hopefully it is not a head gasket or crack in the engine internally.If you have a 3.1 or 3.4 engine it is most likely the intake manifold gasket that is leaking.

My 85 honda accord is blowing white smoke out of the exhaust pipe in the rear and it appears to have something dripping onto the heat shield under the car, what do you think could be the problem?


check the brake system for any leaks. check the master cylinder for leaking out the rear of it. if you take the master cylinder nuts of that hold it to the power brake booster and slide the master off the booster and look at the rear of the master to check for a fluid leak or dampness. if you see this replace the master cylinder. also sometimes the power booster will suck the fluid were its drawn into the engine and burnt and the smoke will look white. another thing that causes white smoke is a bad head gasket as the coolant is sucked into the combustion chamber and burnt, it can also leak externally and cause the dripping you see.

1996 toyota tercel is leaking radiator fluid


Get a paper towel and try to absorb the liquid. See if you can match the color to any fluids of the car. If its clear and has no smell its water which would be coming from condensation, a very typical non-issue.

Which fluid do I top up with in the reservoir next to the converter under the bonnet? Toyota prius 2005.


Is a old school habit to top up fluids, if is low is , then there is a leak, or somebody serviced wrong, the reservoir that you are mentioned is call inverter reservoir, it uses long life toyota coolant, if the water pump leaks it is the one that will get low.

for the record, the only fluid that you refill is the windshield washer fluid.

My 04 grand prix is leaking coolant. It was first


I had the same problem.The leak was from the block heater.I did not notice any leaks on the ground,but was always low on anti freeze.The block heater came apart on the highway and blew all the fluid out of the car,luckly i shut the car off and had it towed to the shop.They replaced the block heater with a rubber frost plug to get me back on the road.Have your block heater checked,they maybe your problem has well.

No power, smells like gas all the time


this could be numerous things but i will give you no or low cost....chech for leaks in the gas line first,or even a leaky tank/ fuel filter and catalitic converter next...climb under and cbang the convertwer with a hammer to lossen up carbon deposits. i would then replace fuel filter and also AIR FILTER...check that for sure.

Radio fuse keeps blowing - check tire pressure and low coolant lights come on - wipers will not go down when turned off


look for any leaks at the firewall and underneath the carpeting in your car. Mine did this a while ago and stopped when it was dry out. The check tire pressure is resettable by a little button under the right side of your dash next to - but under the instrument panel. Low coolant could be a leaking head gasket or intake manifold gasket(common), or a clogged radiator try having it flushed and look for any excessive coolant consumption or fluctuating coolant temps.

2002 Alero check Engine light Codes P0132, P0137


Code P0132 is O2 sensor voltage high bank1 sensor 1, P0137 is O2 sensor voltage low bank 1 sensor 2, P1189 indicates a fuel control problem bank 1. It could be either the O2 sensors or a convertor. Could also be intake manifold gaskets. GM had a lot of problems with the lower intake gaskets leaking on the 3.1 and 3.4 engines that was linked to their Dexcool coolant. In fact they just lost a class action lawsuit about it. check with the dealer and see if the intake problem has been taken care of. Hope this helps.

Coolant leaking from underneath car near oil pan.


THIS IS STRANGE, BECAUSE THE NEXT PAN BEHIND THE OIL PAN IS THE TRANSMISSION PAN. UNLESS MECURY HAS DEVELOPED SOME STRANGE SYSTEM THERE SHOULD BE NO WATER OR COOLANT ANYWHERE IN THAT LOCATION? IF THE PLASTIC PLUG IS LEAKING IT CAN BE FIXED BY REMOVING IT AND WRAPPING THE THREAD WITH TEFLON TAPE AND RE-INSERTING IT AND TIGHTEN IT. IT THE PAN ITSELF IS LEAKING, THERE ARE ONLY TWO THINGS HERE. ONE, YOU CAN RE-TIGHTEN THE BOLTS TO SEE IF THEY ARE LOOSE AND SEE IT THIS STOPS THE LEAKING. OR, IF THE LEAKING DOESN'T STOP, YOU NEED TO REPLACE THE PAN GASKET WITH A NEW ONE AND REFILL THE TRANSMISSION WITH NEW OIL. YOU MIGHT AS WELL CHANGE THE FILTER WHEN YOU HAVE THE PAN OFF, BECAUSE IT IS PROBABLY OVERDUE. I THINK YOU WILL FIND THIS LEAK IS A STICKY RED FLUID CALLED ATF OR AUTOMATIC TRANS. FLUID. THAT WILL NEED TO BE REPLACED. NEW FILTER, NEW GASKET RETORQUE THE BOLTS, IMPORTANT, DON'T WANT THAT THING FALLING OFF, NEW FLUID, YOUR BABY SHOULD PURR AND NOT WIZ ON THE FLOOR ANYMORE. NOT SURE HOW TO DO ALL THIS? BEAT FEET TO THE NEAREST PARTS STORE AND BUY OR ORDER THE CHILTON OR HAYNES MANUAL FOR 93GRAND MARQUIS AND YOU WILL HAVE PICTURES AND STORIES YOU WON'T BELIEVE! CAN'T GO WRONG! GOOD LUCK!
