Water in trunk of toyota avalon

Either your rear windows leaks or the boot seal is cracked, torn or not glued properly on the car body flange. Check these first, or try and sit in the boot with a strong torch and have someone to hose the rear part of the car. Usually you'll find the leak and fix it.

Why is there water on passanger floor after a heavy rain?

Check for leafs that are blocking drain holes on both ends . Air inlet cowl in front of wind shield. This blockage would cause water to back up and enter the Hvac air inlet.

Noise under driver side when I go over a bump

it sounds like the windage tray underneath the engine is loose and needs to be buttoned back up. i recommend looking into it because in the case of a heavy rain, water could enter the engine bay easier and knock off the serpentine belt. and a disrepaired windage tray affects highway gas mileage.

Rain water leaking in drivers side vauxhall meriva

if this is a new shape meriva the problem is the wiper scuttle seal leaking water .it drips into the engine bay,onto the heater pipes and tracs into the cabin.Pour water onto the screen and look into the engine bay,just behind the engine and you will see it drip onto the heater pipes where they enter the bulkhead.It then tracs into the cabin and soaks the carpet.The problem is a foam seal on the scuttle panel when it should be a rubber one.One fix is to ensure that the seal where the heater pipes enter via the engine bay is dry and spray it and the pipes with underseal.Vauxhall are aware but dont have a solution?

Why is my 98 nissan frontier stalling in the rain?

Check if your engine bay is wet as this could interfer with the ignition side of things.There should be a cover in the wheel bay near the wishbone/suspension.
Water can get in this way too.

White smoke means you're vaporizing water. It could be a culmination of things.

1. You've got coolant leaking through your headgasket
2. You've managed to get water in your exhaust through condensation or rain.

When you say it doesn't start what to you mean? It just churns and churns or it doesn't crank.

If it's not cranking at all you may have hydrolocked the engine or simple have a dead battery. Parking down slope can causes water to run into the engine bay. Usually your rubber liners will channel water away from critical components but you do have your major electrical and ECU located in the top left portion of your engine bay. This sits right next tot he windshield and having heavy rains with your car parked down slope will channel alot of water into this area.

Was your passenger footwell damp? The ECU has a firewall gromet that runs to the passenger footwell. Water may drain through this point if it manages to make it's way into the cavity of the ecu bay.

all in all, let the car dry out, give it a go again. Keep your senses at peak, listen for odd sounds, try to get a whiff of that white smoke, check for coolant odor and be prepared to stop if something isn't right. Don't risk a major problem just because you don't want to give up trying to identify a smaller one. It just gets more expensive.

Hope this help.

Water pooling under passenger floor mat. is there a drain which might be clogged?

water from rainfall or water appearing on a dry day? if it's not rain it could be a cloged a/c evaporator drain. this might be hard to find. look for a clear hose (sometimes with a flap on the end) on the other side of dash (in the engine bay passanger side).

Everytime it rains really hard rain gets in the car. There is a 2 or 3 inches in the passenger side floor board.

I have the same problem with my 91' 318. Water is coming in from the outside air intake at the base of the front windshield, under the black vent covers. If the basin fills up, water enters the vent system throught the outside air intake. Solution: there is a drain line at the fire wall, easily accessible between the firewall and engine block. It drains water from the basin. It becomes clogged with dirt, and prevents water from draining. However, after further inspection of mine I noticed that during periods of HEAVY rain, even a clean drain line is inadequate to drain that volume of water and the same happens. See attached link. Good Luck
