As far as the water, it is probably the drain tube coming off the Evaporater housing that is clogged and backing up into the car. If you can get under the right side by the friewall you will see a black rubber hose. Most of the time you can just get something and clean it out a bit and you will see a bunch of water come draining out on the ground. When you see all the water drain then you know you have cleared the drain tube. As far as the defrost, it is strange but some cars defrost work better with cold and some work better with warm. I think it has alot to do with outside temp ad to what will clear the window faster. i know if it is hot outside....you almost always need cold air to clear it and cold then hot will work.
Hope this helps

I have a 1992 Honda Accord and whenever it rains, water leak through the speaker on the passenger side door and make a big puddle on the floor. Also the water leaks into a hole in the floor by the ECU


Not comming from the speaker! Make sure that the rubber door trim aound the door is intact and not damaged. Additionally, check the rubber seal on the outside of the window where it retracts into the door. These are the only 2 ways that water can enter through the passenger door.

Air does not blow from my 2000 Grand Prix's air conditioner at all. The air went out temporarily one day and came back, but the next day it would not work at all. I have looked at the blower motor,...


If you look on the firewall on the passenger side there should be a drain hose for the A/C under the evaporator, these can get clogged over time and cause water to puddle on the floorboard. Just take a straightened out clothes hanger and push it up into the drain hose breaking up any blockage in there.


To replace the blower motor, take out carpet under glove box. look under glove box. there should be three screws to take out and then just pull out the old blower motor.

check windsheild and fresh air intake area at rear of front hood for leak/ seal prolems. Also door weatherstipping , rust should be a problem yet but that depends on your physical location

Transmission oil leak, clear fluid on passenger side , when ever car stops


Probably Air conditioning condensation (normal) or rain water build up in wiper motor area due to leaves or other debris clogging the drain tubes. If its leaking in car the drain tube into the engine compartment is plugged up. Just needs unplugged with compressed air or a piece of wire.

Water leaks into the vehicle on the front,


It could be a plain old fashioned leak around the windscreen - difficult to find but try sitting in the car while somebody plays a water hose over the windscreen.

It could also be a blocked drain in the ventilation system - fresh air is normally drawn in to a car via vents at the bottom of the windscreen. These vents normally lead to a "box" like structure where any water that enters the vents drops to the bottom and then drains away via a short hose that runs to somewhere underneath the car.
If the drain outlet or hose gets blocked (by leaves for example), it can cause the box to fill with water to the point where it can leak out in to the passenger area.

Hope this helps you find the problem.

Mazda Tribute. Water leak under driver's feet. Had similar leak on passenger's side and it was the air-conditioning. Could this be the same?


Generally, water on the passenger side is the A/C drain tube.
Driver side generally means widshield or sun roof seal leak.
Did you wash the Mazda or did it rain prior to puddling?
Before disassembling the windshield seal, test ... with a water hose (Remove floormat and place a towel on newspapers on the driver's side floor).
There is a "smoke" test" that can more accurately find the leak. See if you local AutoZone will rent one (maybe free) to you.

Water on passenger floor...


Two things: If there is a stickiness or sweet smell to the water, your heater core may be leaking.
If this is just a summer thing, your a/c evaporator drain tube my be blocked/clogged or leaking inside the vehicle.

Water leak on fwd and back passenger side after every rain storm


pull your carpet up near the leak area and look for muddy body seams. it is possible one of the factory body seams are leaking- possibly in the cowl(under wipers) area, especially if it leaks when the car is sitting. there will be dirt/mud around the seams that are leaking. also you can check door seals by running the car on HIGH DEFROST with all doors and windows closed. spray around with a 50/50 soapy water solution. obviously bubbles will form around your leak.

Clear Oil leak on Mitsi Mirage 1989


could the clear oil actually be water?. if it is leaking out in the area around or behind the passenger side front wheel on hot days, it is probably water from your A/C, system. it has an overflow or drainage pipe, as the process of cooling the air dehumidifies it and produces water. just a guess though
