Check underneath where the steering wheel shaft comes out on the engine side of the firewall; look hard, it's black and so is the firewall padding. it's a little tiny elbow. It's easier to clean it from below the car, at least that way you can see what you're doing.

My 99 lincoln runs ok but water spraying on windshield n radiator keeps draining im thinking bad hose what else should i check?

You hit the nail on the head. This sounds like a bad heater hose. If so then it may also be wise to replace all the hoses and belts on the vehicle so you only have to drain it down once. Also check the passenger side floor to see if it is wet. If so your heater core could be leaking as well.

97 K1500 passenger side floorboard gets soaking wet with really hot water. No sign of leaks in hoses or radiator and air conditioning drain is draining. Help??

Check the heater core it has a leak in it. Is the radiator losing antifreeze or a small amount at a time. Then it would be the heater core if no other leaks are showing.

Under the passenger side front seat and back floorboard is mysteriously wet. Any ideas how it got that way?

Yeah, there is a condensate drain that will get plugged up with stuff ( a leaf was in mine) Its frickin hard to get to though. but check to see if the water feels COLD. In my case, the location was right of center ( passenger side) see a plastic housing with a tube going through fire wall or disappearing into the carpet? the bottom of that tray collects condensate from the a/c coils and drains it to outside. If the water is HOT, and you smell radiator fluid, then you might have a heater core leak. Maybe this will help you nail it down.

Heating AC problem

It sounds like the heater core is leaking engine coolant into the passengers side compartment. White mist could be steam from the hot coolant? The Heater fan could be damaged, or it is a short. Fill your radiator and take it to the shop or replace the heater core.

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

Water leaking into the passenger side floor board from the ac

Normally when that happens it means your heater core has gone bad and needs replaced. I'm not really sure if it can be patched or not. Before anything though try running a radiator sealant through it first, If that don't work, Replace it.

Overheating and leakage...

That tube is the A/C drain port. Your problem is the heater core is leaking and draining from the A/Cdrain port. I hope this helps.
Thank You,

Floorboard on passenger side is soaked, why?

The heater core is located on the passenger side of the passenger compartment under the dash. There is a possibility that this is leaking. When the heater core leaks there is generally a sweet smell and the windows will fog up inside of the car. The A/C's evaporator core is also located in the same housing unit. It could also be an AC problem.
