Sounds like a plugged evaporator drain. Pretty common on these cars as many did not have cabin filters.

Ideally you should pull the evaporator box and clean it out, but for a quick fix you can shoot compressed air into the drain tube to clear the blockage.

The drain tube is in the engine bay, on the firewall just above the steering rack, nearer the drivers side. You will need to pull up on the firewall mat/fabric to see it.

My heater blows cold air only, its worked all this time up until now. 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse, it also leaks water under the driver seat when I use the a/c. please help


It sounds like the heater matrix leaking,usually the dashboard has to come out to get to it.keep an eye on your engine water level too as its the same water and coolent that runs the a/c.if its leaking into the car then you risk over heating the engine.

Driver Side Leaking


I had a problem like this before. Carpet was soaked after the winter. There is a few spots to check out here. Your window seals could be dried out and allowing water to creep past them. You may have a rubber grommet missing from your fire wall or under the vehicle. Mine was a rubber plug right under the feet area of the floor board and was missing. If your car is relatively new, I would make sure your car door and window seals completely when it is closed. Check it out next time at the car wash. If everything is dry, hose it down real good so it will cause the leak to appear. Follow the leak to the source or where it begins to get wet first. That will reveal your problem.

Water leaks on the driver side floor board


the evaporator coil drain hose is clogged. Look under the car on the passenger side,directly under the firewall and you will see a black hose stub. stick something like a chop stick or pencil in it and clean it out.

My air conditioner work good but the water is liking inside my car not out side what do i do to fix this.


The heater / AC core is leaking on the passenger side floor board right? It's a pretty complicated fix, you have to take a major section out of the dash to get to it behind the glove box. But it's doable. Hope it helps.

A/C drainage issue


Hi Jay!

The problem is condensation on the evaporator coil not being caught and drained to the outside. There is a catch-pan under the evaporator coil where condensate should collect, and from that catch pan there is a drain hose leading to underneath the floor pan where it should then drain to the ground.

If that hose has become disconnected, clogged, cracked or pulled from it's exit hole, that water will collect on your floor and cause the problem you have described.

I'd be disappointed in a mechanic who could not solve such a simple and common problem... and I'd be looking for a new one!!!

Hope this sheds some light on the issue and helps you get it resolved. Do not hesitate to ask if you have further questions or to post comments, let us know how it goes, and please be so kind as to rate my advice....

Thanks and good luck!
