Coolant on the floor in the passenger compartment means that their is either a leak in the heater core or its connections/hoses.

Why does my Buick Rendevous, 2005, leak water into both front floorboards?

Is it leaking water or Anti Freeze?
If it's Anti Freeze you can pull down the rug or floor mat to check, you should also smell the Anti Freeze. This means your heater core is leaking & has to be replaced, if it's not leaking bad you can try a sealer called Aluma seal (my spelling could be wrong),looks about the size of a roll of dimes, most auto stores have it.
If it's water, my guess is the AC condensation hose is blocked. Does it leak only when the AC is on? this hose runs outside, usually on the
passenger side behind the front wheel, when the AC is on & condensation builds up, you will see water coming out on the ground, this is normal, but if that hose is pinched or blocked the water could end up running onto your floor. Hope this helps.

I had my air on in my car then I noticed the passenger floor was all wet. I understand that indicates the heater core but im hoping to get a diagram of the setup of behind the carpet cover to help with...

that depends what liquid was on the floor if you had the air on and there was a lot of condensation ( water ) and the drain is clogged it will leak on the inside of the floor if its antifreeze its the heater core there should be a small rubber hose under the car from the middle to right side of the firewall pointing downward squeeze it they usually get clogged with mud and leaves sometimes and when you squeeze it it lets go so be prepared for a mudslide hope this helps

the core is bad if you find water on the inside the bolts to take out the coolet / heater core is found on the fire wall under the hood you have to remve all the hoses when you do be sure to use coller coded tape that you can buy a an autoparts store . its best to replce this because of all the chems that cause wear and tear they do not leak if they are good

I hear water gurgling inside front passenger side by the floor,I im also experience that i dont have good heat.only when im driving i get ok heat.Please help what can i do to fix it.

The heater core could be leaking. Have you checked for leaks on the floor area or it is low on coolant. If no leaks, then could have an air lock. Then you will have to bleed the system from the heater hose on the engine side.

It takes me forever to stop when im on the brakes...and now i cant even pump them...whats wrong or could be wrong

If the pedal is going to the floor while you are trying to stop and not pumping back up, you could have a few conditions that would cause this.... master cylinder may be faulty, rear wheel cylinders could be blown out and leaking, front caliper(s) could be leaking. Or a brake hose could be leaking.... check at the back of the master cylinder where it bolts to the brake booster, look for signs of brake fluid where they meet, that is usually a good indication that the master cylinder is leaking past the seals and could be causing your problem. Hope this helps.

My air conditionier on my 2002 crown victoria is blowingout the w

Check the hoses underneath the cup holder area under the dash and make sure theres no obvious hoses disconnected. If they are ok, more than likely your selection switch is bad. You take off the plastic trim from around it starting from the passenger side of the car and remove the (4) 7mm bolts, carefully disconnect the colorful hoses and the wiring and replace the whole thing. I hope this helps

1998 grand cherokee drivers floor keeps getting soaked

first, when I read your post I remembered that if the ac drain hose (small hose stub on the engine side of the firewall, usually on the passenger side) gets plugged this can happen. If that doesnt fix it, get a friend to spray with a hose and start looking for where the water is entering the cabin. Leaks are a real pain to find, even for shops, so don't get discouraged if it takes a while to beat this!
