There is only 1 water drain, officially, and that is the petcock valve on the bottom of the radiator (of course, removing the bottom hose can also let coolant out). Your question seems vague, but if you are concerned with your coolant getting stuck somewhere and not circulating properly, then your thermostat is your answer. You should not, under any conditions, be losing coolant. If you are, then it's either leaking onto the ground or being burned through the engine. Never, Never work on your cooling system unless the car engine is positively cold or else you could be burned by the coolant! What exactly is happening to cause you to ask if there is a water drain that gets plugged?

I have a 2000 jeep grand cherokee Laredo 4.0 liter, I hear a the sloshing sound of water when I turn corners or go up hill and accelerate at the same time. I have replaced the thermostat, both heater

First, open each door and give it a shake back and forth and see if you hear water sloshing. If so, check the bottom of your door. The drain holes may be plugged and not allowing water out. I have that same problem and after a big rain I check for sloshing.

H3 Hummer leaking water into cab.

My 06 H3 was leaking when it rained. It turned out to be the sunroof. There are two drain tubes in thefront of the sunroof that run the water down the corners to the groundand two drain tubes that drain water out the back corners. The waterwould seep around the glass, which is expected, but both of the tubeson the front of mine were plugged, and the water would overflow behindthe dash and fill my floorboards. If my H3 was leaning to the leftduring a storm then the drivers side would be full of water. If leaningright, then the passenger side. I had to open sunroof and blowcompressed air into the drain holes to clear them, but be careful, toomuch pressure will separate tubes from sunroof and then you will have toremove the inside paneling around sunroof to get to tubes andreconnect. You may only have one side plugged. you can test it byopening sunroof and pour a little water in the small catch pan in thefront of the sunroof and see if it drains as expected (to the groundunder the firewall2_bing.gifon left AND right side). You can see the holes in each corner of catchpan to drain the water. Plug one with your finger, then the other tofind the plugged side. Good luck!! Hope this helps!!

I am getting water into the passenger side floorboard of my 1999 toyota celica convertible

there is a drain for the heater air box to drain moisture onto the ground. it should drain water when your using your air conditioning as well. its located outside on the passenger side on the lower firewall under the hood. they do get plugged from time to time. you will need to check and make sure its not plugged and can usually only see it from under the car. also make sure your air intake screen by the wipers is not plugged with debris.

Have a 2005 ford focus and water is leaking onto the passenger floor board badly. not when its raining onnly with ac on. the drain is not plugged, tried wire and blow gun to clear drain. so much...

If the drain is not plugged, how is water getting on the floor??? crack in housing?? no tricks, find out where exactly water is getting to floor. If water is on floor, but not coming out of the drain, it may be cracked or a seal is not in place.

Flushing antifreeze on a 2006 kia sorento

This procedure makes a bit of a mess and requires catch pans but it is the best way to flush a coolant system without cutting any hoses or adding a flush kit.

If your radiator does not have a drain plug is to remove the LARGE lower radiator hose and drain the anit-freeze. (Even if it does have a drain plug the steps below are the best way) You then plug the lower radiator hose connection on the radiator and have a 2nd person add water to the radiator with a hose. They will need to place a rag over the fill port for the radiator and flush the block until you get clear water from the lower drain hose. Once you get clear water drain off the fresh water by unblocking the lower radiator fitting and flush the radiator. Once you get cleanwater from the radiator connection, reconnect your lower radiator hose. (Tighten the clamp!) Then add your anti-freeze. Remember there will still be a some water in the block so do not be afraid to keep your anit-freeze / water ratio a tad higher because the left over water in the block will dilute it slightly.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Water coming out of rear seat vents

The problem is that the drains of the motor compartments are plugged up => the water gets into the airco ducts, which have drains in the passengers compartment and are also plugged up... If you leave the air on circulating, the water problem is not there as no water comes in, better is to unclog the drains, there is a description on how to do that, if you need it mail me at rfaass at yahoo dot com and I'll send you a pdf.

My 1986 lebaron convertable leaks and there is water in the car rocker panels and sloshing behind passenger seat. How where are the drains

the drains should be under the carpeting,if you lift up the carpeting and look around you should see them.the are either a metal plug or plastic plug and if you remove them the water will drain out the should also vacumn the carpets with a wet vac to get as much water out of them or they will smell and get moldy.

it should have a drain plug on the inner bottom that twist out. If not the bottom rad. hose will be fine to remove. I drain the water, and then run water through it with the hose still off. Replace the plug or hose and put in a cooling system cleaner (prestone) and fill with water. Start the car and let run for until it reaches a normal running temp, keep running for 5 min. urn engine off, let it cool and drain water. I then flush it again with water to remove any rust or gunk left in. I do this until I see good clear water running out. Reinstall your plug or hose and fill with (anti-freeze) be sure to get the right anti-freeze, some take a different color. If you use 50/50, it will take 3-4 to fill or 1 straight anti-freeze with mixture of water until full. Good luck
