Question about Toyota Avalon

1 Answer

My 1997 toyota avalonwas struck in the rear on the highway. a pool of water was noted under the car when we pulled over but could not figure out where it was coming from. upon restarting the car it became steaming I then opened the hood and noticed a crack (1/4- 1/2 inch wide by 3 inches long) on the water outlet below where the radiator hose attaches. the insurance comany states that this was not caused by the accident and must have been previously cracked. i maintain that the car could not have been driven even a short distance with the crack! can you comment?

When in a rear accident everyting shifts forword and the momentum could have caused it you would have known if it was like that before the accident because it would have been steaming and overheating.

You probably driving a mobile swimming pool !

Under the rear seat and the trunk fills with rain water. This corrodes the ECU connections to the on-board control modules.

Common problem with British cars....with the weather in the UK, you'd have thought we could produce water tight cars by now !

Most of the problems come when its raining and if its not being driven and water still comes in then its the bonnet rubber and if when its being driven then its due to the rear wheel throughing up water under wheelarch and somewhere theres a crack in the weld or somewhere and it will find its way in..

Water coming in and pooling in the drivers side floorboard


Does it have a sunroof? if it does, check drain hose; poor a cup of water into the area around the drain holes & check for drainage under the car onto the ground. Has it recently had a glass replacement? Get another person to spray the outside of the car methodically from bottom to top slowly while you check for leaks inside the car. Or, turn air on w/all glasses closed, spray soapy water onto suspect areas, leaks will create more bubbles.
