You will find a drain hose located on the fire wall 9 times out of 10 build up of debris not hard to unclog at all.

2005 chevy equinox window fogs up and a strong smell of antifreeze but my floor is not wet

It sounds like the heater core is leaking. You may not see a wet carpet. There is a drain tube that allows condensation to be directed outside the vehicle. You may notice that the coolant is draining onto the ground instead. Check the heater core first then the two heater hoses. A coolant pressure tester will help you find the source. Let me know how you make out, Good luck.

Driver side floor getting wet.,changed windshield,checked around door for leask ,the only other thing i can think it may be is the a/c drain,but most leask on pass.side.i am lost ,need help

could be your heater core. does it seem to steam out the vents? any funny smells? check your coolant level to see if it is low. OR (and I dont recommend) you could do the taste test of the fluid. if its sweet its coolant.

My truck passger side floor is wet

Can you tell if the wetness is coolant/antifreeze or just water? If it is antifreeze/coolant then it is most likely caused by the heater core which is on the passensenter side of the vehicle. If it is fresh water, it is most likely caused by your drain (under the windshield) being clogged up and allowing the water from the drain to get into the fresh air intake and drain onto your floor boards.

Leaking on front driver carpet but no visual sign of leaking around door or windows. Carpet is drenched and so is cushion underneath carpet.

1. Have you been using your heater and is the smell sticky sweet? If so you're heater core might be leaking.

2. Have you been using you're A/C? If so you may have a clogged or disconnected condensation drain.

Why does passenger side floorboard get wet in 03 buick century?

check the hvac system drain on the firewall. condensation has to drain from the hvac box and when the drain plugs up, it leaks inside of the coach. I bet your from a warm weather climate and still using your a.c. i'm from green bay wi. and have not heard this complaint since august. if your from a cold weather place, see if the moisture smells like antifreeze. if so, suspect a faulty heater core.

Heater core

If anti-freeze is actually coming out of the drain tube then yes, you could very well have a bad heater core. You may also be able to smell antifreeze while inside the vehicle if it is leaking. [Its a kind of sickly sweet smell] If just clear water is dripping out then this is most likely from normal condensation that is collecting and dripping off of the air conditioning evaporator core as the air conditioner runs. This condensation collects in the heater, a/c housing then drips out of the same little drain. Water from normal condensation will evaporate off of cement or pavement pretty quickly but antifreeze takes quite a while to evaporate away and feels slimy to the touch. It doesn't take much of an antifreeze leak before the cooling system gets low on so make sure you don't run low on coolant which can cause the engine to overheat.

Floors in the front are wet and the car is starting to smell

Three possibilities--the windshield is leaking water, the heater core is leaking antifreeze (should smell like antifreeze), or the air conditioner evaporator (near the heater core) has a plugged drain tube and the water condensed out of the warm air is running back into the cab. Hope this helps!

2004 Chevrolet Tahoe-front passenger side floor is wet

Check the heater core unit located underneath the dashboard on the passenger side of the vehicle. Even though your car's antifreeze is red, it may appear to be clear when there is only a small amount present. Was the liquid in the vehicle sticky and have any smell to it?

Passenger side getting wet

Are you losing any coolant?
The heater core maybe leaking. If so, somehow close off the heater hose lines going to the firewall.

If that is not the case, try blowing some air up into the drain line to unclog the drain. There still might something preventing it from draining properly.
