If you changed it, as you said, then you are familiar with the box and the heater core so you should be able to diagnose what is leaking and from where. If you just had someone else do this, then you should be asking that person the question. If it is water, your condensation drain is plugged. If it is antifreeze then you have a leaky new core or a bad hose connection. If you put a used core in to replace a used core, this is what happens.

Windshield fogging up in a 2004 dodge dakota have already replaced heater core


You need to get a new heater core, and not the cheapest one out there. Dodge heater cores are an exact-fit and the cheaper ones are not as well made either. If you are having to bend slightly or force into the heater box, it won't work.

HOW TO CHANGE HEATER CORE IN 2000 BUICK CENTURU


Instructions
  1. Removing the Heater Core
    • Lift the hood and prop it open. Makes sure the engine is cold. Disconnect the negative battery cable with a socket wrench or box wrench. Avoid using open-end wrenches on the battery terminals, as they tend to strip the bolt heads.
    • 2Place a drain pan under the radiator. Open the radiator cap. Open the radiator drain on the bottom of the radiator and the two coolant drains near the oil pan. You can reuse the coolant unless it appears cloudy and contaminated. Close all three drain openings once all the coolant has drained from the system.
    • 3
    • Disconnect the inlet and outlet hoses of the heater core inside the engine compartment using a socket wrench. Be prepared to catch or wipe up any coolant that drips from these hoses. Drain the coolant from inside the heater core.
    • 4Unscrew and remove the lower instrument panel sound insulator from below the dashboard on the passenger side. Use a socket or screwdriver to loosen and remove the screws on the heater flooricon1.png outlet. Remove the clips and take out the duct.
    • 5Loosen and remove the screws holding the heater core cover in place. Remove the cover.
    • 6Remove the retaining bolts holding the heater core in place. Remove the heater core.
    Installing the Heater Core
    • 7Position the replacement heater core and secure the retaining bolts. Put the cover back on the heater core and reattach the screws and clips.
    • 8Reinstall the floor outlet duct with its screws and clips, followed by the lower instrument panel sound insulator.
    • 9Reconnect the inlet and outlet hoses to the heater core In the engine compartment.
    Refilling the Cooling System
    • 10Tighten all of the drains. Fill the radiator up to the base of the radiator neck with antifreeze, reusing the old coolant if it's cleanicon1.png. Fill the coolant overflow tank up to the "FILL" mark.
    • 11Reconnect the negative cable on the battery and start the engine, making sure you leave the radiator cap off. With the engine idling, look into the radiator and notice that the coolant level has dropped. Add coolant until the level is back up to the base of the radiator neck. Add coolant to the "FILL" mark on the overflow tank. Put the radiator cap on, making sure the arrow on it points to the overflow tank.
    • 12Squeeze the large return hose leading to the top of the radiator with the engine still running. The hose should begin to feel hot, indicating that the thermostat has opened and is functioning properly.
    • 13Check for leaks in the cooling system.

Rainwater on floor


it may not be rain water ..if its in the right front floor board ..check for leaks in and around the heater core or the hoses that supply the the heater core with water [coolant] ..also keep a close eye on the amount of water [coolant] that is in your radiator..if its coming up low each time you have checked it ..its almost a sure bet that is where your water [coolant ] is being lost..or going [into your floor board] so your thinking it rainwater..

2007 Pontiac Torrent floor board is soaking wet. A pressure test was done on it and they couldn't find anything wrong. Any suggestions??


passenger side floor? There is a small tube that directs the condensation from the AC to the ground.If this tube has gotten plugged or moved the water would end up on the floor. Should be able to see this tube sticking out of the bottom of the heater /ac module.

Water leak passenger side in dodge caravan 2005 carpet soaked


look at the firewall on the engine side and you will see a small stub hose coming out on passenger side about even with the bottom of the heater box inside. that hose drains condensation from the ac...clear it out and you will have a dry floor. (unless heater core is leaking but you didn't mention any overheat or coolant loss so likely that's not a problem)
