Locate AC drain line

ac drain pipes are on the passenger side front floor area (just about where your feet go) under car when cars heater core gets a hole in it lots of times antifreeze will leak inside car on floor try to get a small sample of fluid thats leaking out with a tissue or something (white In color) see what color fluid is ,see if fluid is slippery like oil or not (rub it between fingers)
Antifreeze= orange or green in color
Transmission oil = red or brown
motor oil = brown to black
washer fluid = Blue or drk orange
ac condesate= clear water (cold)

What causes liquid to drain onto floor of cab

Sounds like ur heater core is leaking. On most cars its located up under where your feet are on the floor. If you are overheating it is because you are loosing coolant, which would explain why your floorboards are wet. It is a huge pain to get to the heater core and usually entails ripping apart the dash to get to it. I would take it to a professional unless its an old truck and you can actually see the heater core.

The brake pedal pulses when stepping on the brake with no steering wheel shake on a 98 Ford F150, rear ABS only. The ABS differential sensor has already been replaced. What could be causing this?

have you checked the rear brake rotors/drums for being warped ??
normally vibrations while braking are.. through the steering wh = front
thruogh brake pedal/seat = rear

good luck

The air drain is clogged and is pilling up in the passenger side floor bored were is the drain out at

the tube is run through the fire wall and it runs into the center of the frame try drilling a small 1/4" hole through the front side inside cab to clean it out. compressed air is good but maybe with wire.

A/c heater & massive drain/leakage on DRIVER floor only. I have had fresh fluid put in twice but every drop drains into the floor. The ac fluid usually will not drain if I do not run the unit, but...

The condensation line can be cleared from under the passenger side of the car just behind the front tire, it can be done with a vacuum cleaner, But this doesn't sound like an ac issue, it sounds like the heater core is leaking.If you check your radiator fluid and it's getting low or that is the fluid in which you are talking about then this is the heater core and not ac related. The ac doesn't use liquid that is changable but rather a gas called refrigerant.

Carpet wet by driver seat under floor mat

Is it water or brake fluid. Water could be a windscreen leak or leaves have got through the outside grille of the vent, blocking the drain, so when it rains the piping is full of water. As you go around corners the water leaks into the cab.

If it is brake fluid, you have a leak in the master cylinder which allows fluid to leak down the push rod, onto the pedal and into your carpet. If you are not having to top up your brake fluid it is not likely to be the problem.

Water is accumulating in right front floor when AC is running. I cannot find a drain for the AC. Where is it?

Check outside, under the truck, passenger side, behind the front wheel a bit, there is a drain tube hanging down, if it's plugged up, the condensation leaks back into the cab. Use a wire to go in the tube and dislodge any accumulated goop.

Wet floor on passenger side in front and the extended part

The ac box is filling up with condensation.The drain ,is under the firewall,under the ac lines going inside the vehicle.Take a small diameter wire,and run it in the drain,back,and forth,until it clears,it will run out like a water fall,so look out.If this doesn`t work,then use compressed air to blow in the drain.
