Whats wrong when the passenger side floorboard is wet under the carpet, and the moisture is coming from underneth?


Most likely cause is a leaking heater core. Have your cooling system pressure tested and look for leak.

You need to replace the heater core as it is leaking coolant.

1999 Intrigue Cylinder Head Gasket leak


hi Cionie i will have a stab in the dark here, as you say you are not loosing any water and the oil is ok..ie not looking creamy coloured which would point to a head gasket leak for sure, so this sounds like the water pump to me, it seems what is happening is the water is not getting pumped around the engine fast enough to be cooled, has this been checked? as it actually may not be leaking from the pump but the internal fins might be u/s hence not pumping the water fast enough, that really is the only thing that i can think of that has been missed on here.....hope this helps good luck

Small hole in bottom of radiator drips


There are products out there like stop leak that MIGHT stop the radiator leak. However... the only real repair is either to have it soldered (if the end caps are not plastic) or replace the radiator all together.

Adding a product like "Stop Leak" most often starts to introduce other problems to your vehicle like a future water pump seal failure or clogs in the smaller water passages in the engine block, heads and manifolds and the thermostat heater bypass hole. Anyone that has ever done any major engine repairs will know immediately if stop leak was used in a cooling system.

The best fix is to replace the radiator.

Many radiators today can not be repaired

Stop leak is in most any auto parts store. Just be advised of what you can expect down the road.

specifically

1. warmer than usual engine operating temps
2. water pump seal failure
3. heatrer core clog (no heat)
4. passenger heat control temp valve clog (no heat)
The choice is yours. Personally I would not do the "Stop Leak" treatment attempt. Sometimes it works other times it does not.

1999 gmc suburban has water loss


Good chance that it will be a bad heater core if your floor boards are getting wet, but has the inside of your windshield been fogging up. Most of the time when a heater core goes bad, the inside of the windshield fogs up. If the leak is not that bad, you can add 2 to three table spoon of common kitchen black pepper. The Black pepper will work it's way to the leak and plug it up till your can have it repaired properly and the black pepper will clean up easily when the cooling system get's flushed. Good luck and this should by you some time so you can work on it in the summer. Don't use any radiator stop leak, they just make a mess to your cooling systems water ways.

Water on passenger floorboard when AC is on


You have a bad "heater core". It will leak inside, and outside once the enclosure fills. You need to replace it, or bypass it before your engine overheats and causes a lot more damage. If you're driving the vehicle daily, make sure you check and fill your coolant before you drive it.

Fluid leaking onto the front passenger side floorboards.


2004 TB 60,000 miles. i was just told that the leaking fluid in my passenger side floorboard was do to a clogged up A/c hose. An A/C works by drying/ removing the moisture from the air inside the vehicle and cooling it. The accumulated fluid is usually evacuated under the vehicle which is what you see when people are stopped at a red light and there is dripping under their car. when a hose is blocked there is a vent that from some reason flows directly into the passenger side floor board. If you can not manually knock loose the block your probably going to have to take it to a mechanic.

Leak onto floorboard


there are basicaly only 2 things that can leak onto your floor boards the first is your cooling system. If its your cooling system the only part of your cooling system that comes inside your car is the heater core. The 2nd thing that does happen but is unlikely, is if you have a sun roof. There is a drain and a tube that goes down to the doors. if its clogged instead of going down to the doors, it will over flow and spill under the head liner and flow to the floor. But because your widows are getting wet also I would bet its your heater core.

In most cases Heater cores are pretty easy to replace. they are usually located behind the glove box, but can get more difficult depending on the make and modle. I would purchase a Chilton. You can get one at the part store. Dont get a Haines, they are often difficult to read and are not as easy to use. Also Honda's are notorious for A/C mold, but you can buy a kit that you put down the vents that kills it. You should be running the vent with just air not A/C to dry out the vents every once and a while that will help keep the mold down also. Hoda's and Toyota's vents are so well sealed that they are natural borne mold growers. The dealers also have some kind of mold removal thing they can do but as far as I know its the same as what you would buy at the part store. you may have to do it more than once, mold is not always easy to get rid of.
