Check your a/c valve right under the glove box. it should look like a circular black plastic thing. On my 97 GC the seal rotted away and everytime i put the a/c on the condensation would leak back through that black circle thing and down behind the carpet because the seal wasn't there anymore. I used wind shield adhesive its like a black tar can get it in any automotive store.... seal it with that and u should be good. but make sure that is what is causing the water leak. you may have to drill a small hold through the circular part to stick a hanger in there to unclug leaves possibly. and then plug with simple cone plug. Let me know if this works! i have been through hell and back with my jeep so i hope this helps!

When I give my car the gas or stop I hear a swooshing of water coming from under the dashboard


Uh oh, sounds to me like your heater core is leaking, and I also am willing to bet that if you feel your floor boards, they will be soaked with water. Most are difficult to change, but you need a new heater core installed. Keep an eye on your coolent lvl, you car might start overheating. heare is what one looks like:8007f164-d248-480b-9fe7-6465ba789138.gifand it is located under, behind your dash on passenger side. You may have to revove most of the dash to get to it. If you want to try this job yourself, google : 2001 jeep grand cherokee heater core replacement.

How do i remove a heater core on a 2001 grand cherokee


The heater core on your 2001 Jeep Cherokee is responsible for providing heat in the cab of your vehicle. Overtime or due to driving conditions, the heater core can become plugged with dust or corrosion and stop working. If it is not working properly, the heater in your Jeep will not warm the interior and could cause the windows to fog over. To avoid this, if you start seeing signs that the core is not working properly, you can remove it yourself in about 2 or 3 hours and save yourself the expense of having someone else do it.

just follow these steps:
  • 1

    Detach the negative and positive battery cables from the battery of your 2001 Jeep Cherokee with an open end wrench and crescent wrench.

  • 2

    Remove the cap from off the radiator and also from the top of the coolant overflow tank on the passenger side of the Jeep. Locate the drain valve at the base of the radiator and place a drain pan on the ground, below the drain valve.

  • 3

    Open the drain valve on the radiator with an open end wrench and allow the coolant to drain into the pan completely. When it is finished, close the drain valve and remove the drain pan.

  • 4

    Unfasten the dash pad on the top of the dashboard by using a screwdriver to undo the screws holding it in place. Check the defroster vent and remove any screws holding the vent screen in place.

  • 5

    Remove the trim panel underneath the passenger side of the dashboard with a screwdriver and set it aside. Locate the plastic box that is sitting underneath the dashboard on the passenger side.

  • 6

    Undo all the screws that are holding the plastic box in place with a screwdriver and set the box off to the side. Locate the heater core that was sitting inside the plastic box.

  • 7

    Unscrew all the screws that are holding the heater core to the firewall with clamps underneath the dashboard. Remove the clamps from the heater core.

  • 8

    Lay a piece of plastic sheeting on the passenger side floorboard to cover the carpet from any coolant remaining in the heater core. Pull the heater core away from the firewall until you see the hoses attached to the inlet and outlet pipes on the unit.

  • 9

    Remove the water hoses from the pipes on the heater core by unscrewing the hose clamps with a screwdriver and sliding the hoses off the pipes.

  • 10

    Take the old heater core out of the Jeep Cherokee and dispose of the unit. Recycle the drained coolant by taking the drain pan with the fluid to your local recycling center or automotive supply.

    When i turn on the heat, I smell antifreeze right away then it goes away


    Your heater core is leaking. The heater core on your 2001 Jeep Cherokee is responsible for providing heat in the cab of your Jeep. Overtime, he heater core can become plugged with dust or corrosion and stop working causing it to leak. The heater core is linked with the antifreeze that runs in the radiator in turn draws heat from the engine and than uses that heat to warm up the car. Most heater cores are located under the dash on the passenger side. Here is a link for how locate and remove the heater core. http://www.ehow.com/how_5332477_remove-jeep-cherokee-heater-core.html

    I have no heat in the winter and it sounds like i got water in my dashboard.


    Most likely a bad heater core. It's behind/under the dash. There should be two hoses that go into the firewall under the hood. These carry and return warm coolant to the heater core. The blower motor blows across the heater core and pushes the warm air into your car. Try feeling the carpet under the dash on the passenger side. See if it's damp. Many times if the core starts leaking, your carpet will be damp over there. I've also seen them completely plugged up with dust/dirt/debris/insects, so the air wouldn't flow through it from the fan.

    I have a 96 jeep grand cherokee straight 6 with 102000 miles i just found what appears to be water leaking inside the cabin under the passanger side seat and rear left side.


    The drain for the water coming from the ac is clogged. Clean it up. It's easier to do that from underneath the car - the drain is located on the firewall.

    Heater core 2002 jeep grand cher.


    I purchased a Blen Door repair kit. for my 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee after having only cold air blow out of the passenger side for over a year. I found it on EBay. It requires you remove the glove box, cut open the heater box and replace the blend door. I really didn't want to cut that open, however, with the tape that comes with it, I have had no problems with it leaking any air. The dual control no longer works, the temperature is now completely controlled by the drivers side, but to save $1200, I was willing to do this. I have taken the entire thing out before to replace the heater core, didn't want to do it again.
