Heater hose/valve leaking under the dash and running down under carpet?
Needs finding quickly to avoid cooking your motor.
Check your coolant level immediately, and top it up with the heater turned on to avoid an air pocket in the heater circuit. Leave the radiator cap off and the windscreen demister and internal fan running.
Keep the motor running until the air at the windscreen gets hot and the water starts moving in the top of the radiator.
The water may drop at this point and need some more to be full.

2001 Mitsubishi Galant leaks water into passenger side floor when Air conditioner is on. Whats wrong with the car?


The A/C evaporator drain tube is most likely blocked. If you have a V6, you're in for a real treat trying to reach the thing to clear it. The tube is on the firewall behind the driver's side rear motor mount, and slightly to the left as you're facing the firewall. It is a 1/2" diameter metal tube projecting about 1/2" from the firewall, and is covered by the firewall sound and heat blocking material which has to be folded back to reach the tube. A pair of what I believe are brake lines are one finger's-width in front of it, making it VERY difficult to get to the tube. (Brilliant design, Mitsubishi!) If you are very dexterous, you can slip a small piece of wire or a cable tie under the brake lines and into the tube from the front to try and clear it. Good Luck!

Water accumulates only on the front and rear driver side floor boards and "only" after it rains. I was told it might be a plugged drain. How can you tell if its a plugged rain drain and not a poorly sealed...


take a star screw driver and punch a pair of holes in your floor on drivers side make sure once you go through push the screw driver towards the front of the car and creat angled pockets
these will be your new drains being so small they will bnot tako on water or they will take on a min of water and they will drain the floors


it''s the easiest way to fix the problem go right through the carpet it's just thet easy use a good pointy screw driver or a center punch but dont make the hole larger then 1/4 inch
a mechanic will carge you 250 to fix original drains and will likely do the same as i said a couple of wacks near the lower center on the floor boards
so get in place feet on floor slide them back against the seat with it all the way back now place pointy object between feet and wach it with a hammer
once through push pointy objest forward to create new drain

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
