What a pain this is. Had the same problems. I fixed the trunk by removing the rear plastic insert in the center of the trunk (where the license plate mounts) and sealing it. I also looked at the trunk gasket to see if there were any issues. It seems to leak right near the center near the trunk latch and then run down into the tire well.
The water on the floor I think is water following the door gasket to the bottom and then rolling over into the car. This doesn't happen too often on mine so I haven't done anything to fix it yet.

Water leaking from plugs on bottom of gas tank


That makes no sense whatsoever. If water were coming out of the fuel tank, so would fuel and the car would not be driveable in that condition. What you are thinking is the fuel tank may well be the bottom of the trunk. The spare tire wells in most trunks have drain holes in case water gets into the trunk. This is more common than you think. The gasket that seals the trunk lid often gets loose over time and allows water intrusion. The water finds its way to the spare tire well and drains out.

I have a 2001 Olds Aurora and the trunk keeps filling up with water. Can't find a leak. Any suggestions?


Try this trick, add vasoline to your weather strip to your trunk. What happens is when the weather strips start to get old, they can no longer conform to the truck and gaps form letting water to get in. Good luck and keep me posted.

I get standing water on rear floorboards whenever I am driving in the rain


there is a leake in one of your rear tailights, check in your trunk as well below the spare tire and you will most likely find another pool of water, clean up both your floor board and the trunk area and then all i have done was sealed the tailight on the passanger side and it fixed my problem.

How do you change the brakelight on a 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora


pop the trunk and you should see two screws along the rear taillight assembly. remove the screws and the taillight assembly should pop out. you can then twist the bulb and pop it out along with the harness, put the new bulb in and reverse.

If it's your 3rd brake light, the bolts holding it in against the rear window will be found inside your trunk along the top side of your trunk (get in and look up)

Water in spare tire compartment of trunk after heavy rain.


U need to carefully check the seams of the sheetmetal for any sign of water or dirt from the road, there is no common leak on these cars, in fact they seldom leak anywhere, the water is most likely splash up from the road, unless u left something out like it was sitting when this water accumulated. Let me know that info.
