TallCo, I have the same problem with my Ford E150 van on the Driver side but it is not what you said. Your problem is the same as mine and the reason why you are having that problem is because there is a whole in the roof of your van some place and those are hard to find because you got to take all the carpeting and on the roof out of the van to find the whole that is in the roof and then get it fixed.

SOURCE: water from ac leaking inside on floor, drain tube open

Pull the fan and blower out of the enclosure and make sure the drain is really open, i will bet it isn't and has leaves blocking it on the inside.

Can water be forced up past pistons in a 5.7 350 mercruiser.

you would not get sufficient water past the rings to cause what you describe
there has be a fault in the assembly as the water is getting in past the water manifold into the intake to suck water in on top of the pistons do you have an operational back flow valve in the exhaust to stop water being sucked back into the engine past the open exhaust valves on shut down
are you running an oil cooler in the system that could be a reason for water in the sump oil if it is leaking

I have a Saab 9-5 2001 sluggish take off when warm and fine take off when cold

I had the sane problem with my 2000 Saab Aero 2.3t at 135,000 mi. I took the black plastic cowl off from around the oil fill cap and intake to inspect vacuum lines and found a small line on the intake ( just beneath the clamp on the large rubber boot covering the intake facing me ) had come off. I replaced the line ( vacuum hose ) on the exposed fitting there on the front and test drove the car for 45 minutes with stops about every 15 min to park and shut off the motor. The problem was/is gone. I followed the line to the firewall area and a small vacuum canister that feeds the vacuum module on the air bypass tube next the radiator on the driver side. Don't know the technical terms for the parts but the problem surely has to do with that circuit which also has an electrical connection on the firewall intersecting canister. Hope this helps someone. I was lost.

Ford escort wagon 1997 code p1443 displayed. what does this indicate & where is the cannister? thank you.

P1443 - EVAP Control System / Vacuum System Purge Control Solenoid Or Purge Control Valve Fault. A fuel tank pressure change greater than minus (-) 7 inches of water in 30 seconds occurred with a purge (fuel vapor) flow at less than 0.02 pounds per minute.

Possible Causes:
  • Blocked fuel vapor hose between the EVAP canister purge valve and the FTP sensor.
  • Blocked fuel vapor hose between the EVAP canister purge valve and the engine intake manifold.
  • Blocked vacuum hose between the EVAP canister purge valve solenoid and the engine intake manifold.
  • EVAP canister purge valve stuck closed (mechanically).

  • Possible Solution:
    Check for blockages between the fuel tank, the EVAP canister purge valve, and the engine intake manifold. Check for obstructions in the EVAP canister purge valve diaphragm and ports.

    The canister is on the passengers side near the firewall if I recall correctly.

    Over heating


    Thanks for using FixYa. Please check that the thermostat, water pump, radiator fan and the radiator cap are fine. If you are losing coolant due to internal or external issues please check the oil level. You’ll also need to check the intake manifold gasket and dried coolant spray on the hood or on the passenger side of the radiator. Also look for a rusted flat surfaced pulley of the water pump or moisture on the inside of the pulley. Bleed off the air from the cooling system. There is a bleeder above the #2 spark plug connected to a solid black horizontally running tube above the front valve cover and connects to the block. If the temperature drops at highway speed, it's probably not the thermostat. When you change the coolant in the Malibu open the air bleeder screw at the time of refilling the radiator. The screw is at the top front of the engine on the small hose which runs from the thermostat housing to the coolant reservoir. Don't try just running the engine with the screw open because it doesn't work. You must drain and refill the radiator.

    Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

    Air condition leaks into driver side and rear floor board

    The evaporator box drain is stopped up.Under hood,under the firewall,right below the ac lines,you will find the drain.Take a small wire,like balin wire and move it in and out of the drain hole to relieve the water,it will pour out pretty good.If this doesn`t work,try compressed air pressure.I hope this helps.

    Water in oil

    Hello, it seems that you have intake gaskets leaking. I'll bet you have the vortec 350. This is a common problem with the vortec, Gm uses plastic intake gaskets and they blow out over time usually to the externally but yours is internally.It is a pretty easy fix for the average mechanic to do. Thank you

    Everytime it rains really hard rain gets in the car. There is a 2 or 3 inches in the passenger side floor board.

    I have the same problem with my 91' 318. Water is coming in from the outside air intake at the base of the front windshield, under the black vent covers. If the basin fills up, water enters the vent system throught the outside air intake. Solution: there is a drain line at the fire wall, easily accessible between the firewall and engine block. It drains water from the basin. It becomes clogged with dirt, and prevents water from draining. However, after further inspection of mine I noticed that during periods of HEAVY rain, even a clean drain line is inadequate to drain that volume of water and the same happens. See attached link. Good Luck

    2005 Civic Hybrid -- A/C problem?

    what you have is a drain line plugged. there is a drain that goes to a canister inside the engine room that has a blockage. it can be caused by a spider web or something that entered the hose. it backs up the drain and causes water to run inside on the floor. its a real quick fix at the honda dealer if you cant find the location yourself

    most vacuum leaks are in hoses that are disconnected or have holes in them you can also take a bottle of water and spray it along the side of the intake and base of the carborater if the motor bogs or you here it **** the water in you have found you leak but it can be a leak under the intake and that is a bigger problem to find
