If you touch this fluid and it has a slippery feeling, it is engine coolant leaking from the heater core.

Sticky fluid on passenger floor

That sweet smell is usually, radiator coolant. Most likely you have a leak on the hose or the heater core is damaged and leaking.

The front passenger side of the floor is always 2005 DOdge Carava

Is it wet with water or coolant? If it is coolant you have a damaged heater core. If it is water it could be from a windshield with a bad seal, a leak in the floor or possibly an air conditioning system with a plugged drain tube. There is nothing else that would bring water in from the vehicle. If your are a cold climate and snow gets in on someone's boots it will melt and wait till dry weather to clear.

1997 Honda Passport coolant leaking into passenger floorboard

that may very well be the heater core. it would be dead center at floor under dash. on the firewall

Floor wet

The heater core would be the only cause of the souce of water drippng when you add to the cooling system. Check your heater core to heater hose connections first. Do the simple stuff before embarking on a "fantastic voyage". You may just have a slightly cracked hose as well.

Heater core?

ok most cars you wont see a physical drip because the box is sealed to the firewall it will run out the drain hole the same as the ac if bad enough they will leak down the insulation right to the floor board running pure water will cause rust but rarly causes the heater core to blow what you arre looking for is the problem that started it all why she was adding water to begin with you didnt mention the type of car and motor so i really cant get into diagnostic procedures you can bypass the heater core on most cars if it is using that much water you propably have a blown head gasket that will make the heater core blow let me know the type of car and I will help you diagnose it further
