This water is most probably condensation dripping from the airconditioner. This condensation is formed by the warm air coming in contact with the cold A/C. No need to worry about it. Run the vehicle without the A/C and see if the "leak" stops. If it was engine coolant it would have been green or brown in color(assuming your coolant contains antifreeze)

SOURCE: water leaking from under car from passenager side.

This could be your evaporator drain pipe. Is it just open at the end? If you have A/C, the evaporator will get condensation when the compressor runs and will release water. The hose is to let the water out of the car. The compressor may run when you turn on A/C or could also run with the mode selector in windshield mode. If this isn't it or you have more questions, please get back to us.

Py 1997 plynouth voyager is leaking antifreeze could it be freeze plugs and where are they


They are called CORE plugs as when they are made they take out all the sand out of the holes and fit in plugs.But if your leaking water out and cannot find it then yes its a core plug... as all summer you use coolant min 20%,Winter coming on 20% Antifreeze. and soon as winter is finished you should flush out the engine and radiator as Antifreeze causes the block to go rusty as its cast iron and the core plugs must be BRASS not steel because antifreeze eats away the plugs
But the plugs are fitted 1Rear of engine behind the flywheel 3 either side of engine block and some times 3 or 4 in the heads under the rocker gear..
Let me know how you get on .. Ron

Seat Alhambra 1996 1.9L water leak drivers footwell


the water can travel along surfaces or beams in the car so you cannot tell where it is actually leaking. in my ford windstar water leaked in right over the fuse box. it ran along a cross beam from the passenger side. if it has those plastic strips they use to go in between small gaps in the metal... like along the roof where the roof is and the metal of the sides joins it is likely they are leaking. best to take a garden hose and have someone inside the car with a flashlight on the floor looking for leaks

The air conditioning only comes out the defroster vents no matter what I set the controls on in a 1997 Buick LeSabre.


Broken vacuum line most likely. Try removing the dash assembly trim and locating a small thin black tube from the rear of the control knob itself, and then trace it throught the firewall looking for melting or breaks.

Antifreeze wont stay in car leaking for bottom


You need to look closely at the hose connections, freeze plugs, and the water pump. Water pumps are designed so that when the shaft bearing wears out, they leak from a small hole under the pulley shaft. Sometimes they will only leak while the engine is running. Freeze plugs can rust through causing a leak usually from the side of the engine. Hoses can leak from anywhere. You'll probably have to get under the engine to narrow down the possibilities. You may also want to rent a tool to pressurize the cooling system. That might help you to see where the leak is coming from. If you've never changed a water pump or a freeze plug before, you might be better off taking it to a professional. If it's just a hose, you could probably do that yourself. I hope this was helpful. Thanks.
