I have 2003 Ford Taurus sedan & have water leaking into the passenger floor board. What could be causing the problem & fix for it?

Does it leak when you drive in rain, or does it leak all the time?

If the former, can be seals and grommets anywhere in the engine compartment, bad door seal, bad windshield seal, sun roof leak, or holes in the floor pan under the carpet.

If the latter, it is the heating system from the heater core or the pipes to it.

I have a Ford Taurus 2001. For about 5-6 years, it leaks when it rains on the passenger side. It only leaks sometimes. Sometimes it is a lot of water, sometimes a little, and sometimes it is none at...

I would guess that your windshield is leaking. Older cars usually have had the windshield replaced. Sometimes they don't get the new one totally sealed in. You can take it to a glass shop and have it re-sealed or you can get some windshield sealer at a car parts store and do it yourself. Pretty easy to do. Just don't get it on the windshield or the paint.

Water leaking inside 2001 ford focus passenger side floor

The ford focus and Taurus models from this period are notorious for water leakage. Unfortunately it can be from two possible causes. Lets start with easiest first. The water dam (black plastic) where the windshied meets the hood (on outside) sometimes pulls away from glass allowing water to run into the crack and then into the dash and into primarily passenger side. The fix for this is listed in a TSB by Ford and the dealer can install, for a price ofcourse, a replacement damn that helps. For my sons Taurus to diagnose if this was the true problem we put a piece of clear packing tape over the place where the dam meets the windshield making sure it was sealed to glass tightly and then waited for next rain and it was dry so that fixed it. SECOND possible cause is a bad heater core. If the wetness smells sweet like radiator fluid or sugary sweet then this is probably a coroded heater core that leaks radiator fluid into the passenger compartment. It is located in center of dash closest to passenger side. Unfortunately if this is the case it needs to be replaced and a radiator shop will charge anywhere between 250 to 500 to do the job with part included. If it is the HEATER core you should check your coolant level regularly because it operates on pressure and with a leakign heater core you can lose pressure and possible have engine overheating. Good luck

2001, rain water comes onto the passenger side floor. I removed the cabin air cover and reinstalled, siliconing the edge to the windshield. It still leaks. Whats wrong?

Are you sure it's rain water and not coolant? Coolant would have a distinct smell.

Does the car have a sunroof? The drainage tubes on sunroofs can get stopped up and allow water to enter the car.

My 2005 taurus has started getting a pool of water on the passenger side floorboard after a heavy rain, any ideas on how to fix, didn't see any leaks from windshield.

Look for moisture on the glass of the windshield, as well as the passenger side door, if thebottom seal isnt making contact on the door glass water will run in threw the door

2000 Ford Taurus: With heavy rain, water leaks into cabin filter holder, down air vent, and onto passenger side floor. This just started happening this spring. Are there drain holes somewhere I should...

if you can remove the plastic "cowl" section(s) at the base of the windshield and clear out any debris.sticks,dirt,acorns,mud,etc. THEN run a garden hose where the rain normally would run down and "flush"the drainage paths at each end by each fender. see if that fixes the problem. theres also a possibility that the windshield seal could be bad.
