I have an 2006 hummer h3 with a 3.5 in it and it smells like gas but there are no leaks and no codes

Inspect all of your fuel lines for a possible leak. Take notice of the spot where you park to see if there are any wet spots. If there are it will give you an idea of the area to inspect

1995 Chev Tahoe 4 door. Water in rear cargo area near the rear doors. It leaks if I pour water over the rear of the roof near the top of the rear doors. All weather stripping on doors is in tact....

Check and make sure seals are even not warped. Check for rust around the are where it's leaking. If you have a compressor with a blow gun blow along the area where the water is leaking in. If you feel air coming through the area check and make sure the weather stripping is sealing properly. Doors could be out of alignment as well causing the leak. Or door seals could be rotting out.

Water leaks into rear left cargo area in 2006 Jeep Liberty during heavy rain. Think it's coming from roof rack but no water comes in when I aim a hose at it.

Could be the rear wheel is splashing up the water onto the cargo area, only when you drive. It might be a hole in the floor of the cargo area letting in the water.

I have a 1993 GMC suburban and the carpet in the rear cargo area gets wet when it rains. i was sitting in the rear when it was rainning 1 day and did not see any rain come in around the windows or seals...

Believe it or not, check the rear wheel wells for rust damage or holes. As the tires spin the water is thrown up into the well and penetrates the rear cargo panel. If not try to check the saturation starting at the rear door and follow it until it gets less. The odds are the water is coming in through the wheel well.

2003 suburban passenger side carpet gets wet when it rains

Just fixed the same issue on our 2004 Suburban. Turned out it was just that the drain for the rear A/C was clogged with dirt (located right behind right rear tire -- above the exhaust pipe). All it took was a paperclip, straightened out, poking gently in this narrow rubber ****... and the water came gushing out (floor was wet at the time). If you do it when the floor is dry, you would have to turn on the rear A/C for a while and make sure the condensate drips out of the drain.

I have water leaking from the rear of my truck and it keeps the carpet wet and also builds in the compartment under the rear seat. I tried to find it but i can't. Where can I check and what can I do?

mcdevito75 here, It could be a number of ways water is getting in, first is there any water in the front carpet that can be flowing to the back, if the fron is also wet you have to check the A/C evaporator drain, under the dask by the glove box a rubber hose connected the the evaporator leading oustside the truck, make sure this rubber hose is attached, if only water in the rear, check the cargo bed of your truck for leakes, also inspect the rubber around the door frame of your truck.

How do you hook up trailer lights on my 1999 gmc 4x4 Suburban

If your only going with a flat 4 connector, you will have a connection behind rear bumper area that you can buy an adapter to put between the connectors & flat 4 will connect from there, otherwise you can splice into your light harness in back of cargo area, behind panel in the corner. That's all provided your only going with a flat 4. If you need more info, just let me know.

Have your ac evaporator deain cleaned out or checked. Without this working the ac water will collect there.
