Question about 1999 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

I can hear water sloshing whenever I break suddenly. Sounds like it's coming from inside the right side dash or door? We recently had 7 in of rain within a two day period & my '05 Camry sat in the rain. My car when closed up for the night smells of meldow & I found the back floor mats wet but cannot find where the water is.

The water probably went down between the window and the door. On the bottom of the door is a drain hole, with all that rain it looks like the water in the door washed some dirt or something over the hole and stopped it up but not before it went inside the car and onto the carpet. Just unplug the hole with a small stick or something and watch for the water drain out. Open the doors and let your car dry out. Should be O.K.

I hear water sloshing around in the dash area of my 2007 grand prix. i assume the water comes off the windshield but do not know where the drain is to unclog


You shouldn't hear water sloshing around anywhere. Usually when water comes of the windscreen, it runs to the sides of the scuttle grill and then exits via the guards (fenders) and out on to the road.
The drains are on the left and right sides of most cars but usually you need to remove the inner guards to get to them. Once you find them, you'll need to probe them and remove the junk out of them.

My passenger side floor is saturated with water when it rains. When I make right turn I hear what seems like water sloshing.


Hello,
If you can smell a little bit of a sweet smell from the water on the passenger side floor, or if it has an oily film to it, you may have a leaking heater core.

They usually leak on the passenger side floor, and that might explain why you hear water sloshing around.

If you can run the engine for about 5 minutes and then turn your heater on. Look under the dash in the area where the dash meets the floor board and see if you can see anything leaking.

I hope this helps you.

I have a 2003 Volvo S60 that ends up with a wet carpet in front of the passenger seat whenever it rains (Seattle). Also, when I am driving and turning left or right at corners, I can hear water sloshing...


The drain for your A/C may be clogged causing the water to accumulate. You should be able to locate the drain from under the vehicle on the pasenger side, perhaps there is an accumulation of debri such as leaves for example. Also, sunroof drain may also be blocked. I can say I have seen this problem before, and its a good place to start. Good luck
