I have a water leak. I have isolated it to a small black rubber tube, aboutn an inch long, protruding under the vehicle, pointing at the ground, just to the left of the forward U-joint. The fluid is clear, colorless, odorless and tasteless, with the consistency of water. Tube projects out of a sheet metal housing of some sort. What is this tube, and why would water be coming out of there? All other fluids are at appropriate levels.
Please reply to email,
Thanks so much.

2008 kia sportage water is dripping from the blower motor, what do i do?

It's the water from you A/C condenser ,the drain tube runs under the car and at times they do get plugged up or bugs get in there. any ways if you look under the vehicle at the fire wall you should see a small rubber tube hanging down not connected to anything ,if you can get a small flexable wire and put in up in the hose about 6 inches or so you may feel the obstruction and or water will come out , you can all so use compressed air to move blockage. good luck hope this helps you .

Central vent block

The vents are clogged.
you will need to check both drain tubes to make sure they are clear.the Evaporator drain tubes the condenser does not have drain tubes. They exit the vehicle underneath the vehicle along side the transmission. They are a black rubber tube, you will need to get under the vehicle to access them.If you have no water coming out of those drains that is your problem.On top of the transmission tunnel inside the vehicle. If you look along the transmission tunnel inside the vehicle you will see the carpeted section that can be removed which is held in place by a screw. Remove this carpet on both side and you should be able to see the evaporator drains.Because the tubes are not draining the water the housing will fill up with water until it finds a point were it can leak out from.Underneath you will not see the clogging you do not need to replace them for clogging. The best way is to check the drain tubes were they connect to the housing. Yes it can be a common problem if your cabin filter has not been changed at the times that are required or if you live in an area were there are a lot of trees.

There is dealer service bulletin on such problem:
If this leakage happens when it is not raining ... and ... it does not smell like engine coolant (a sweet maple-like smell) ... AND .... you are running the air conditioning, this may be condensation drain-off from the A/C evaporator. This condensation is supposed to drain through the bottom of the heater/AC box and then through the floor (at the top of the transmission tunnel hump), to the ground. This is the puddle of water that you see under a car when the air conditioning is running.
If the drains in your heater/AC box are clogged (or the tubes connecting the drains to the chassis floor), the condensation will gather and then leak out onto the floor. The cure is to clear the drain tubes. If all of the above points fit your scenario, of course, this is under warranty. I would suggest that you ask what the dealer has already done (in detail) and note that you still have the leakage and the the drains are likely still clogged (again, if the above parameters fit your case).

When driving my 1999 Buick Lesabre in rain water will appear in the floor well on passenger side in the back. The water comes from under the carpet as much as an inch. The 4 surrounding sides of the floor...

Hey Gary!

I have noticed this condition in a few cars and have found the solution to be one of the following in each incidence ;
Cause :The drain plug in the floor board was dislodged / missing.
(assume that someone had spilled or inundated the rear compartment floor pan at one point and dislodged the plugs to relieve the excess?).
Correction : reseal the plug holes (bung holes).
Inspection proposal ;
Lay on the ground and inspect the underside of the suspect area of the vehicle. Note the 2.5 inch diameter simetrical holes with black rubber plugs protruding them.
Note condition and presence of plugs.

The front right inner fender (plastic liner that isolates the splash from tread water exhaust) is compromised , allowing the water to flow from the tire to the interior rear floor pan via the hollow thresh hold under the doors (assuming they have not rotteed out yet) to the point in the upper structural pillar between the front and rear compartments.

Solution ; GREATSTUFF the area and paint with a matching paint color.

My 1997 540I fills the floor with water whenever we run the AC its four inches deep on the rear passenger side

AC drain plugged. It looks like a rubber tube, and is typically found protruding from the firewall under the hood, close to the floorboard area. Run a small screwdriver through it to pull out any leaves and dirt.

Where is this a/c drain hose located? I think the drain on my a/c is clogged. I get water on the passenger side floor when the a/c is run for a while.

You have to jack the vehicle up and look under the vehicle around the mid to passengers side you will see a small rubber tube.It is not that big and will stick out about an inch or 2 from the body.Do not use anything to long when cleaning it out or you can poke a hole in the evaporator.Also make sure and use jack stands when the vehicle is off the ground and that it is on level ground.Good luck.

Water on passenger floor /water leak

So little information to work with...

You say WATER ???.... OK Then Water it is..

Evaporator has a drain tube that carries away the excess water that forms when the ac is operative After several years it's not uncommon for this drain tube to get plugged up

Look under the vehicle for a drain tube, A Black Rubber tube and clean it out with Caned air Using all the proper safety equipment.

Hope this tip helps.

Wet floor passanger side

Air conditioning drain stopped up with debris (leaves,pine straw,sticks). Small tube sticking out from firewall with rubber elbow pointing down behind engine, passenger side. If elbow missing air will cause water to back up into vehicle. Another possibility, if your coolant is low heater core leaking.
