Water leaking under my2001 gmc jimmy

Could be a hose, could be a soft plug, could be a water pump, could be an intake gasket. Need a little more information, couldn't the people who found the leak tell what was leaking? You will probably have to get under it and look around and see where the water is coming from. Please rate my answer so I am rewarded points for it.

I lhave a leak in the passenger floorboard of my 2001 nissan frontier. it drips when the ac is on and only then. I was told that the drip pan is cracked and has to be replace. This is costly and the dash...

Before going ahead and replacing your drip pan, double-check to see that the external drain hose isn't clogged, which would cause condensate to back up, overflow the drip pan, and leak into the passenger compartment. Often, these drains fill with "gunk" (mold, mud, sludge) that slows or completely stops water flow. You should be able to find the drain opening if you look under your Nissan--it probably looks like a little rubber tube that extends out 1/4 to 1/2" from the underside. Sometimes, in rear wheel drive cars, the drain hose is routed into the hump for the transmission / drive shaft--in those cases, it can be a little trickier to spot. You can also cheat and just run your A/C for a while, then look under the car for a spot that's dripping water.

You can use a variety of tools to check to see whether the drain is clogged--I used a wooden chop stick once because I was worried about tearing the hose--but a lot of these hoses have some twists and turns that make it impossible for a straight tool to probe all the way to the drip pan. I've had the best luck using bursts of high pressure water (garden hose pressure is just fine) up into the hose and letting it drain out. Often, a few bursts of that will blow out a surprising amount of gunk and increase drainage flow.

It's possible that whoever investigated your problem has already checked the drainage tubes (though I bet they only looked at the last few inches that were easily visible from the outside; clogs often form right at the drain inlet in the pan itself). If you really do have a cracked drip pan, I can't think of a way of patching the pan without taking off part of the dash to get at it it. At that point, there's little cost savings in repairing the existing pan over simply replacing it, since it's more the labor, not the cost of the part, that makes this an expensive job. Plus, if your repair doesn't hold, you'll need to remove the dash again to finally replace the pan.

Where is the fuel filter located on my 2000 camry

  1. 1 Disconnect the fuel-relay fuse, which is a 15-amp fuse located behind the glove compartment inside the front dashboard.
  2. 2 Turn your engine on until it stops on its own due to lack of fuel. The disconnected relay fuse ensures that the fuel system will stall out, thereby allowing the pressure in the fuel lines to dissipate.
  3. 3 Raise the back end of your Camry using a car jack. Jack stands can be placed on each side of the car as an extra safety measure.
  4. 4 Place the drip pan beneath the fuel system under your car. A 2002 Toyota Camry's fuel system is located under the driver's side of the car and can be found by following the fuel lines to their central location.
  5. 5 Unharness the fuel filter from the system bracket by squeezing the small tabs that connect it to the fuel lines. If the tabs are difficult to pinch, use the needle-nose pliers for a firmer grasp.
  6. 6 Lower the fuel filter to the ground gently, allowing any excess fuel drainage to fall into the drip pan.
  7. 7 Install the new fuel filter by placing it onto the bracket where the old fuel filter was just resting. When the filter is properly inserted, you will hear the snapping sound of the tabs locking into place.
  8. 8 Remove the drip pan, pliers and old filter from beneath your Camry. Your shop rags can be used to clean up any fuel that may have spilled outside of the drip pan.
  9. 9 Bring your car back down to ground level after removing the jack stands. Exercise caution regarding any animals or children that could be in the vicinity of the car during this step.
  10. 10 Plug the fuel-relay fuse back into the outlet in the glove compartment.
  11. 11 Crank your engine several times until it starts. The motor is unlikely to start on your first couple tries, because the fuel is working its way through the system again. Allow a few seconds between each attempt, and your fuel change is successful once the car is running on the fourth or fifth try.

A/c water leaking onto floor on passenger side, carpet soaked, drain tube under car is drippin some

In that case either the drain tube is partially clogged or the drip pan has a leak. Clean the hose with a long tie-zip from underneath the car and look for the origin of the leak under the dash - if you can see it you can plug it.

Cracked drip pan on a 1996 3.8 Rivera Buick.

Hi! My name is Tom and I can help you.

By drip pan I am going to assume you mean oil pan. First you need to get your car on blocks or up in the air enough to reach the oil pan.

Remove the drain plug and drain the oil.(discard the oil). You will see a number of bolts securing the pan. Using the proper box wrench remove all the bolts.

You will see a gasket. This must be replaced. You can purchase the proper pan gasket by asking for a pan gasket at an auto parts store. While you are there ask for the proper sealant for the gasket.

Clean the pan and any oil on the surface where the gasket will touch. Place gasket sealer around the pan and seal the gasket to the pan cover. Replace the pan. Put the bolts back and fill with oil. Start the car and get it to operational temperature and check for leaks. You are now Good to go.

This is a fairly involved yet simple fix.

Water in drivers floor after a/c use

condensation builds on the evaporator coils and fins. they drip into a pan and drain through a hole in the pan, and down a tube to the outside. that's why you see water dripping on the under side of your car on the passenger side. the tube or hole is most likely clogged

Leaking water at firewall

After you shut a car off , the ice on the a/c condenser melts off , drips into a pan , and drains out on the road. If the drain in the pan plugs , it could drip into the car. Just a thought.
