Either the heater core has sprung a leak, or the hose and its discharge is shooting inside the passenger compartment.my bet is on the heater core.you can by-pass the heater core.
remove both hose's that go to heater core and connect hoses with a piece of tubing, or make a loop with on hose to connect both water outlets .

Water leaking from the back( of the motor)-the fire wall


probably from a rusted welsh plug in the back of the block or from the head. If it is near the fire wall then be prepared to pull the motor as there is no room there to do the job.

Steam coming through heat/cooling vents


You have one of 4 problems, #1 the drain at the bottom of the plenum is clogged (this usually drains out under the car near the fire wall on passenger side if vehicle and is useful primarily during AC use to drain condensed water) #2 your heater core is leaking and requires replacement. #3, the outside air intake venting is not draining properly and allowing rain water and condensation to enter through the intake and into the plenum. #4 in rare cases coolant is leaking past the heater hose clamps at the heater core and allowing coolant to enter the plenum.

Engine concern


Smoke (blue or black) or steam (white)? White smoke is really steam that is caused by water leaking onto hot surface. Could be leaking from hose running to heater coil under dash, or something else. Check radiator water level to make sure water level is ok. Blue smoke is oil burning. This could be dangerous, caused by similar scenario of oil leaking on a hot surface (from a gasket leak, etc), or exhaust fumes. Black smoke means something is actually burning and could indicate fire. Black or blue some could fill vehicle cabin with toxic fumes, even if you don't smell anything bad.

Water leaking on passenger floor


Check, if it's coolant, going to be a leaking heater core, if it's water, a/c drain clog up, go under hood, passenger side fire wall, look for little hose coming out of fire wall, stick a pen in there to unclog.

Coolant still leaking from my 1996 Isuzu Rodeo.


There is a plastic heater pipe junction behind the inlet manifold against the fire wall that could be brittle and leaking.
