Question about 2002 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

Hi: I have a 2002 Ford Taurus that seems to have a blocked condensate drain tube. Even after driving the car with the a/c on high I do not notice any water pooling under the car and I'm getting a smell coming from the a/c ducts. I need to know the location of the a/c drain tube so I can check it for obstructions. Thanks Andrew

Why is water leaking into passenger side of 2002 Ford Taurus


It's likely due to a clogged drain hose that drains condensation from from your A/C.

Here's a video that might help.

My 2002 Ford Taurus passenger floor (front) is soaking wet. I have read that it could be a plugged hose. I am a female and have no experience...where do I find the hose to work on this? Can't affo


Sounds like the AC condenser drain is plugged. Do you notice a puddle under the right front while idling with the AC running? If not, the drain is plugged should be an easy and cheap fix at any local garage.

I'm guessing you have a minor anti-freeze leak.The condensation on the air conditioner piping is normal,as your AC works a lot,every time you select defosteror some other positions on your heater.
Check for a teeny leak coming from a hose on top of the engine. don-ohio

Personally, I would pour water in, it is a lot cheaper and if there is no leaks then you could drain it out and put coolant in.

BUT before you start it check your oil dipstick and make sure that you don't have coolant on your oil dipstick.

The heater core would be the suspect in this case as the only sources of water in that area are the heater core and AC evaporator. May only be leaking under high heat and presure, the new thermostat may have helped this for a while but if the pressure is too great and there is a hole then the water will find it. Could also be a hose dripping inside the firewall for the heater core.

02 taurus condensation pools in right floor, just need to know how to fix. Its not the rain.


Look under the car, under the right floor board toward the front for a small rubber tube, this is the a/c condensate drain tube, it coould be on the right side firewall under hood close to the bottom. Dirt wasps love to build nests inside these tubes, they become plugged and the condensate runs inside on your floor board on the right side, to clear it, grab ahold of it and squeeze it along the length and gently twist it back and forth, then operate the a/c and see that water is coming out of it. Hope this helps, let me know.

The AC evaporator/core condensation drain tube is located on the passenger side of the fire-wall towards the bottom of the fire-wall, (it resembles a heater hose that is coming off from the fire-wall and it connects to nothing, and it is just to drain the AC condensation) and it is easily viewed from under the vehicle. Use long pipe cleaners folded in half to clean out the AC drain, and be very careful that the AC evaporator/core, or the heater core is not damaged from using any hard or sharp objects to clean out the AC drain.

I believe the orifice tube on this model requires the a/c pipe to be cut to install a new tube. You need to discharge the system, replace the tube, then evacuate miosture with a vacuum pump, then recharge with R134A refirgerant. Not a job for a non technical person.

The oriifce is in the line just before the evaporator that is in your car a/c heater case. It is where the liquid refrigerant turns into a vapor as it comes out of the orifice and then it absorbs heat from the air going into you car, thus blowing cold air. Moisutre in the warm air condenses and as he iar gets cold and it drains out of your evaporator and out the drain & onto the ground
