If you mean that your constantly loosing water in your radiator then you have a leak. Leaks in the cooling system are under the hood or inside the car... when inside the car there is only one place that it can be which is the heater core located under the dash on the passengers side. the water will show up on the floor infront of the seat. Heater core replacement is a simple but painfull job because of its location. While getting your heater core at the local parts ask and they will confirm! lots of luck. If you find this helpful pleasee leave a good rating Thanks, Jack

I have a 2001 Lincoln Town Car . When it rains, there is water in the passenger


The vent under the hood on passenger side , more than likley the seal is leaking letting the water go inside. I have had to fix my mother's 1999 and my 2001 lincoln. It is not very hard to fix. You will have to remove the screws on the passenger panel under the hood to get to the vent. Pry the vent loose and re seal. You can take the hose and spray water on the W/S when it is dry to make sure it is coming in at that location.

2005 v50 When it rains my car fills with water. It has happened on the driver and passenger side and under the seats. I saw water dripping from the glove box area.


Check all the seals around your windows and doors. Leaks could seep in through there drips at a time and fill the seats. also check the seals around your front windsheild.

Poorly electrics on volvo s40 after valet - what do I do


Check your fuses, if all are operational make sure they a seated properly. We have this type of problem, but live on a dirt road and the vibrations sometimes unseat the fuses. An easy way to check is to see if these problems go away if; when the car is running you give the fuse panel, under the glove box, a solid whack with your open hand. This is a temporary fix we utilize three of four times a year.

How to reset the srs light on volvo 850


Here's a quick check list for most common cost of SRS / Air bag problem.

Dirty contacts on driver and passenger seat belt buckles

Dirty contacts on seat belt connectors (under seats)

Dirty contacts on driver and passenger sides weight sensors (under seat)

Seat covers

Weight on passenger seat
(Example: grocery package trigger SRS / Air Bag light on the way home.)

I recommend you to pass an vacuum over the contacts and use CRC electronic parts cleaner to rule out connectivity problem.

I DO NOT recommend disconnecting the negative battery connector to clean the code(s).

Without the code(s) the dealer will takes "BILLABLE" time to reproduce the problem.

Big puddle of water keeps accumalting on floor behind passenger seat - Volvo S 40 - what is it and is it covered by warranty


You don't say how old your car is so I can't comment on warranty, but is sounsd like either the acsess 'gromet' for the rear suspension has popped out, thats an easy fix, just buy a new one and pop it it, or the floor 'gromet' is loose. Can I make a stupid suggestion, get someone to sit tn the rear passenger seat and take it trough a car wash to see if there is any water coming in! It sounds like a quick fix though. Best wishes Dave
