My 1990 Eunos leaks in at the top of the door seals too, when I drive and brake it pours in through the join in the seals and over flows past the steel strip, I've adjusted the weather strips and smeared some Vaseline on the join between the rubber seals, I'm hoping this does the trick.

Well you could try silicone around the seal area but you may end calling someone to take out and install new window seal

Mazda 2008 mx5: I am getting engine fumes coming into the cabin via the cabin air intake.


There are a couple of things to consider...

First the cabin air intake is generally in a tray that once the engine compartment hood or bonnet is closed should be almost completely isolated from the engine compartment due to the rubber sealing strip and other rubber components. Perhaps some of these are missing or in poor condition. If heater intake water drains are fitted they should be self closing...

In good condition normal smells or fumes should not get past those seals.

The other consideration is where are the fumes coming from? Unless the engine has an exhaust or oil leak or a breather problem the amount of fumes generated to leak into the cabin, even if the sealing isn't in good order, should be minimal.

Car leak


Is into the car, or from the the car? Into car maybe leaking sun roof or seal around windows or boot lid, and doors. From the engine, it could be the seal in the water pump which would mean you need to get it replaced as soon as possible, check water levels this is a good indicator. The other possibility is it could be a core plug popped or corroded, if it was in a hard frost with no anti freeze. Or a leaky radiator or hoses, check each hose and hose clips, but always remember to top up water before you anywhere, and take water with you until you get it fixed.

Have to keep adding water to overflow tank...Code read PO117 for mazda miata MX5


You have a leak in the radiator, water pump, a hose, the heater or a head gasket. Check these and see if there is any water coming out of the exhaust or in the sump.
Take off the radiator cap, fill it right up to the neck, start the engine and warm it up. See if there are any bubbles in the top of the radiator, keep it topped up so there is no room in the top tank.
If there are continuous bubbles then there is a leak in the head gasket.

The steering box on my 93 astrovan is leaking


your going to need a steering unit replacement. Go to orielly.com auto parts and look up to see if there is seal. But I doubt it. We never replace seals in steering gears.

The carpet under the drivers seat on my 2007 mx5 is getting wet please can anyone help...thanks steve...


Check your door seals VERY carefully next time your car gets wet - you'll probably find that the forward seal is leaking very slightly - the water tends to run down the pillar and onto the carpet. There often are no drips to provide you with a hint as to where the leak is; try running your finger along it to find moisture. Also there is a little 'well' in the upper corner of the seal that tends to trap water when you get in and out of the car - this often gets squeezed into the car but is rarely enough to cause too much of a problem.
Once you've found the problem area, you just have to get the seal replaced!
Good luck, Sherwin

93 explorer dripping oil over night from bottom of car


clean the srea and watch, tracing back to the source. The oil can leak from the front seal, rear main seal,Pan gaske, or come from the top of engine. Chances are greater it's coming from the front because of fan draft. good luck
