So you're saying you replaced the heater core because water was puddling on the driver's side, but water is still puddling on the driver's side? I'm assuming you're in the US and the driver's side is on the left and the heater core is on the right side.
Do you get much rain where you live? Is the vehicle parked outside? Do you notice the puddling more often after a rain? If this is the case, your water intrusion may be because of a leaking seal around the windshield or door. Check by getting the floor reasonably dry, and then have someone sit inside while another floods your car with a garden hose - specifically the windshield and driver's door. Have the inside observer try to catch a stream of water along the edge of the windshield, along the door jam, or along the door sill.

6 cyl 3.1 automatic. runs smooth except random "misses" .


The miss is more than likely due to old plugs, wires, cap, and rotor. A complete tune-up would probably solve your problem. It's also possible that you could have water in the gas tank as well, because of it sitting so long, or the fuel could be bad. There is some fuel treatment that will not only help the water in the tank but also cleans the fuel injectors as well; I'm not sure of the name, but you can check at any local auto parts store for a bottle of it... As far as the puddle on the passenger side floor goes, that is a pretty good indicator of a heater core with a hole in it. You'll need a new heater core, but before you go replacing it, because they can be quite costly to replace; Have a mechanic look over the entire cooling system, which includes the heater system, because you probibly need new hoses as well and a heater control valve, due to the car sitting for a while, the hoses tend to dry-up and crack, especially if there was no anti-freeze in it- just straight water, that usually will freeze up and rust the heater control valve and rust up the block as well.

Water on floor board on passenger side of 1991 Buick Century


Engine coolant will feel oily and the windshield will fog up and the car will stink. If it is just water it could be coming from the passenger door weatherstrip at top. The ac drain tube , if stopped up will also leak water in the floorboard.

Water on Drivers side Saturn SC2


Is it antifreeeze from heater core or heater core hose leak?  Is the leak pure water, or maybe something else?
Put it in the garage again overnight with an old white towel in the drivers foot well, best if you can find a way to stretch it from drivers seat forwar to firewall and keep it off of floor mat.  Check it before you go to bed,  then in the morning if no leak found yet.  see if the color/location of the spot helps you identify the source.  I think the heater core is under the dash center.  Anti freeze is green/yellow or orange.
good luck
