Question about 1998 Chrysler Sebring

2 Answers

When it rains, the water leaks into the bottom of the car and can hear it every time I drive. It does not show signs of leaking through the top though. It seems to stay in a drain under the car; how do I drain it?

This is a common problem with Sebring convertibles. There are drain plugs under the rocker-panels (underneath the car door frame). These drain plugs get clogged with dirt. Have them cleaned and your problem will be solved.

The Jeep made a humming, stuttering noise (once every 20 seconds for a duration of 3-4 seconds). Found steam coming from underneath the hood and a fairly large water leak below the car. Any ideas?

yes, per operators guide the fuel light does come on, when fuel is low, (early) so lets skip that.
next is leaks.
the car can leak condensate from the A/C system all the time.
running it, or parked for up to 1hr after. (depends on gravity)
that water is CLEAR pure water. (totally normal even in defrost)

if the water is green or matches same color as the engine coolant tank, then that is bad, that is coolant leaks and will cause engine overheat and damage. to engine.

now we get to stream... that is very very bad. (tops list)
never drive a car that makes STEAM. (unless a Stanley steamer)
noises related to the above is the engine crying for help just before
its self-destructing..., (lasting damage )
why not get the car serviced, and not ask the blind and deaf to help.????
we can not see all , touch all and hear it.
and that matters. in the world of diagnosis,

short answer, why not get car serviced.....
the operators guide, has that like on 10 pages.

Rear Rain Water leak

It can leak into the van from the top of the door and run down the gasket. Or into the inner panel behind the trim. It could also come in thru a side window or door and flow back to the lowest point.
My guess would be the tail light as you suspect.
You may have to try using clear sealer between the light and the metal. The studs may have lost their sealer where they come into the inner panel.

Water in both back floorboards after rain 96 bonneville

Water on the floor board in the back seat is usually caused by a leaking rear window, or leaking back will need to remove the inner rear door panels to confirm the exact leak...(as long as it is warm enough:) after removing the door can ask a friend to water from a garden hose over the outside, and continue until you see the location of where the water is coming from...if the rubber seals on the top or bottom of the doors are bad...this certainly allows the rain (water) to come inside...Nice Car and worth fixing...:)

'03 Accord-water leak at rear driver side floor board

I had a similar leak on a 1995 Accord. I traced the issue to the plastic liner behind the door panel. The seal was broken at the bottom and water would leak from that to the rubber weatherstrip at the bottom of the door that seals at the plastic threshold molding. You can't really see it good until the door panel is removed. The water would drip until it puddled up enough to run over the threshold molding and under the driver's seat. This caused the floorboard behind the driver's seat to be soaked after a rain. I have resealed the plastic lining but of course it hasn't rained since. I'm confident this will solve my problem and hopefully provide you a new place to look for yours.

Water keeps filling up under passenger seat in rear of car

My 2001 passat did the same thing. my leak was coming from the door panel. Open your door and use a water hose to simulate rain water running against your window. Water should run into door and drain out of several drain holes at the very bottom of your door. Check for water leaking from the bottom of your plastic door panel. The water runs down into the door and leaks through your inner door panel seal causing water to leak inside from the bottom of your door panel and run into the floorboard instead of draining out the water hole in the bottom of your door.

1996 Chryslser Sebring Convertible leaks on left side from rain

Water goes between the front and rear window and is supposed to go through a trough and drain out of the bottom of the car. often the drains along the bottom (4 very small slits) get clogged and water will back up into the floorboards. just drive a flat head screwdriver in these slits and it will let the water out! (watch out about 2 gallons came out of mine!)
