Question about 1996 Lincoln Town Car

1 Answer

I notice a slow drip of water on the garage floor. I can't down low but the car doesn't run hot. It looks as if its coming from under where the pump (water)is located. It doesn't seem to be the pump. What could this be is there a hose there or something?

May be seal of water pump or any hose joint is leaking. Fill water in car and then check carefully at the end of the day for the quantity of lost water. My advise is to go to a garage and let them check your car. They won't charge you anything just to tell you about leakage. Get 2 -3 opinions from different garages and compare their qoutes or just DIY.

Pool of clear water on floor of garage overnite

ok , can I assume you run green, yellow, orange ,pink antifreeze
in the radiator, not pure water, and check AF every fall for 50% consenstrations? yes.
then that water is normal Airconditioning condensate water that all cars drop to the ground. pure water it is.
THE A/C runs when you ask for COLD or Defrost.(front)
and works just like a cold beer glass in a humid tavern. it drips.

low coolant level due to the leak is a problem. The water pump or the radiator or a hose to the radiator could be the problem.

Have the car filled up with coolant and pressure test it to 15 or so psi to see where the drip is exactly coming from at a garage.

Water drip inside car when its rains on a crown victoria ford ,on the floor board . had my ac fix two years ago cause hot air was blowing in cause the ac air was not coming in to good . something about...

Most likely the windshield is starting to leak -
Second choice is - there is a drain hose - it may be clocked up - please pull up the floor man - and look for a rubber hose that goes down through the floor board.
If that hose is clogged it will only be wet when you run the AC and you will notice not much water coming from under the car from the drain hose which exits under where the passengers feet are.

Best of it - hope this helps

Leaks coolant were could it come from

If you don't know where it is coming from, you have to find that out. Check the location of the spot on the floor, if you don't have a floor, put down a piece of cardboard, locate the drip, then look under the hood for what it is that is leaking. It could be the overflow on the expansion tank, could be your AC condensate line dripping, could be one of those tiny coolant lines that return to the back of the engine, could be the water pump, could be a hole in a hose. I don't know why the pressure check didn't show anything, might be something else. Check it out.

Ford Fiesta 2003 1.3 If I run the aircon water leaks onto the floor of the drivers side (by the pedals, alot of water.

In the dashboard,set down low is a driptray.It collects water that comes off the aircon.It has a hose (sometimes 2) that drains the water out of the car via the firewall so it drips onto the road.This is blocked or the tray has a buildup of gunk.The hose is about 1/2 inch thick.If you lay on the floor where it leaks with a torch you should find it.Or look in the engine bay,just to the left or right of centre(which side leaks?)and backtrace it into the car.You may find the inside hose has fallen off allowing the water to drip inside.Hope this helps you

a bolt most likely vibrated loose and is letting transmission fluid leak out. try finding it and tighten it back up. or your dipstick housing is loose and the pressure is allowing fluid to leak out.

Sizzling Hot Sounds

Since you are not overheating, thermostat is likely not the problem. Chances are you have some seepage at either an intake or head gasket that is dripping onto a hot pipe when you stop. Leak may be so small at this point that coolant loss is barely noticable. but if you look carefully at all head/block parting lines and check all obvious connections that could leak, you will find the problem. Any white smoke from exhaust?
