Sounds like your heater core is leaking or a hose is not tight on the tube.

How to stop water from coming in the passenger floor board


That depends upon the cause of the water. There are a few possibilities, depending upon the vehicle. See this list and use what applies as a way to narrow down the source.

1. Rust hole in floorboard. Only way to fix is to repair hole.
2. Leaking door seal on passenger side. Locate and repair leaking seal.
3. Leaking sun/moon roof. Some vehicles that have these run their drain lines down the passenger side door pillar and down thru the floor pan. Sometimes the hose shrinks with age or breaks and allow water to get on to the floor. Remove the passenger side kick panel and inspect and repair as needed.
4. Leaking heater core. Feel and smell the water. If it smells like antifreeze or has an oily feel, it may be coolant leaking from the heater core. Of course there should be a loss of coolant associated with this problem. Here the only solution is to bypass or replace the heater core.
5. Leaking windshield seal. Most car windshields today are glued into place. These glue joints can break loose and allow water to leak. Also, rust can form around the windshield seal and cause rust holes that can leak. Lastly, extremely high-powered car stereo systems that pump mega-bass can cause overpressure inside the vehicle that can cause the seal of the glass to separate.

What is causing water to leak down onto the passenger side floorboard of my 2004 Mazda 6 wagon when I have AC on?


Feel the water and smell it. If it smells sweet and fells oily, is is coolant. If is isn't oily and has no real smell, it is water. There is a tray under the evaporator and heater cores that catches water/coolant and drains it via a tube thru the firewall to the outside of the car. This tube is probably clogged and needs purged. If you have coolant on the floor, you'll need to replace the heater core. If it is water, purging the hose will solve the problem as the water is just condensation from the AC coils

1995 saturn! new water pump, and coolant. Changed alternator, and battery, changed oil, oil filter. noticed oily substance in overflow container. did a radiator flush, still has red, rusty color somet


Coolant is oil based. The oily mess in the overflow could be very old coolant. Or it could be engine oil from a leaking head gasket.
The rusty stuff on the floor inside the car could be from a leaking heater core.

My passenger side floor is saturated with water when it rains. When I make right turn I hear what seems like water sloshing.


Hello,
If you can smell a little bit of a sweet smell from the water on the passenger side floor, or if it has an oily film to it, you may have a leaking heater core.

They usually leak on the passenger side floor, and that might explain why you hear water sloshing around.

If you can run the engine for about 5 minutes and then turn your heater on. Look under the dash in the area where the dash meets the floor board and see if you can see anything leaking.

I hope this helps you.

Leaking anifreeze and gets hot but not from radiator causes windshield to fog up smoke coming from passenger side and seems to be leaking from the middle of the truck


Do you have any coolant on the passenger side floor board? Coolant causing the radiator to fog up is a symptom of a leaking heater core.

Water on floor board on passenger side of 1991 Buick Century


Engine coolant will feel oily and the windshield will fog up and the car will stink. If it is just water it could be coming from the passenger door weatherstrip at top. The ac drain tube , if stopped up will also leak water in the floorboard.
