A couple items could be broken

  • heater coil
  • hose to heating coil
Not too expensive but a real pain to replace.

Thermostat, put a new one in and have heat, go 15 miles up the road and it cools off. shut car off for 10 min. and it is hot again but windows are fogging up..

Does the engine reach normal operating temp? Do you live in an extremely cold region? Are the heater hoses hot? Also, there could be a problem with temp door, under the dash.

Why is the floorboard on passenger side wet? It's a 2003 gmc Yukon . We've had the AC tube blown and drained. Wat else could it be?

It is a good chance it is anti freeze from a leaking heater core. See if it smells like coolant. If so you can pull the coolant lines off the heater core in the engine bay and put them together to bypass it until it is fixed

Water leak after rain, rear floorboards soaked? HELP!

a couple things to look at if it has a sunroof the sun roof would have drain hoses that run down in each corner next you need to look at the cowl this is the section in front of the windshield that has a drain on it as well if you find nothing there the next step would be to remove the seats and carpet and sit in the car while running water over it either way you should remove the carpet and make sure it is dry all the way threw or mold will start to grow and you will never get ride of it not good for your heath other key spots to look at is if the windshield was ever replaced it could be a poor seal

2002 Galant, floorboard on driver side completely soaked

try having an assistant 'water'' your car with a garden hose while you're in it.especially check seals at windshield & could take a few minutes of ''watering'' before a leak shows up.

My engine keeps blowing out the anti freeze through the fill tank overflow. I have a 2004 Super Duty 6.0 turbo.

start you truck. let the temp gage get to where it will start blowing the antifreeze out. than turn your heater on full blast. if the temp goes down and the water doesn't come out than you need to change you thermostate.
