Question about 1997 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

1997 Camry with sunroof-pretty sure it's not heater core as liquid is not antifreeze. Leak only happens when raining...car was parked, engine was off, sunroof was closed during a storm today, opened passenger door and saw the water stream between dash and frame. I'm wondering if sunroof drain is clogged but can't I find them? or is there some type of drain from the front windshield that could be clogged?

2007 Camry Water Leak


How is the coolant level ?

It sounds like a severe heater core leak,that why I ask if your coolant level is always low?

You have rubber plugs under the cars body that could allow water to enter but if you have standing water that cant be it.

Does it only happen when it rains ?

Does the trunk area get wet ?

Have an antifreeze leak coming from either the heater coil or back of the motor not really sure.


I'm pretty sure if it were the heater core, you would have antifreeze soaking your carpet, and the inside of your car would smell of antifreeze. Your inside windows would also fog up when you turn on the heater.

Leaking on front driver carpet but no visual sign of leaking around door or windows. Carpet is drenched and so is cushion underneath carpet.


1. Have you been using your heater and is the smell sticky sweet? If so you're heater core might be leaking.

2. Have you been using you're A/C? If so you may have a clogged or disconnected condensation drain.

Water leaks on passenger floor in my 97 honda civic


I have a 1997 Toyota Camry. Water was collecting on the front PASSENGER floor after a rain. I opened my sunroof and found the front drainage holes (about 1/8" diameter) in the corners of the track sunroof track. They looked clear. I poured a bottle of water in track and watched the result. Sure enough, water started dripping from the right ride of the glove box on to the floor. I started tearing out the interior panels to trace the leak. What I found is that if I poured the bottle of water REALLY slow into the sunroof hole = no leaks. But if I pour it too fast the small 1/8" hole cannot keep up and the track overflows! THAT is where the leak comes from in my car! If water overflows the track, then it makes its way down the column trim, around the glove box and on to the floor.

So I need to help the 1/8" sunroof hole drain faster. I took some 18AWG TFFN electrical wire and jammed it into the hole to help clean it out. I then removed the black plastic mud flap behind my front tire and blew out all of the leaves and rotted debris that where behind that flap. It was packed with junk! I poured more into the 1/8" hole and it seemed to drain quicker.

I hope this information helps others.

I have a 2005 toyota camry.Leaking antifreeze on drivers left hand side. Mechanics took apart dash did presure tests etc. and can't find leak? Any suggestions?


The only antifreeze that goes into your car is two hoses (one in, one out of firewall, behind engine) that connect to what looks like a mini radiator. This is called the heater core. Usually this leaks to the passenger side, however it simply has to be your heater core leaking. Tell them to connect those two hoses together instead of running them into fire wall, and if the problem stops, which it will, to replace the heater core. How big is the leak by the way?

There is a water leak somewhere in my 98 toyota camry that leaks into my passenger side floor. There is no sun roof and no visible leaks from the windows or doors. Any thoughts? A/C leak maybe? I hope...


sounds like it may be a heater core check your radiator fluid to see if its full and see if the water inside is water or antifreeze if it is antifreeze its a heater core.

Water leak on fwd passenger side after every rain storm


If your car has a sunroof, there are drains from the front corners of the sunroof, and they drain down the sides of the windshield pillars, and then empty out on the ground.

What I would do is open the surnroof, and pour water into the front corners, and then oobserve where the water drains out. If you have a difference in water drainage between the left and the right sides, I would think that you may have loose sunroof drain. They commonly come loose at the sunroof corners. This will allow the water to pass down the windshield pillar, and onto the floor.

Also, I would check the condensate drain tube for blockage. Pull back the carpet, under the glove box, and fins a black hose that pokes thru the firewall. Pull it out, and see if it is blocked internally. If this tube is clogged, water will build up in the heater box, as the black tube is the drain for the heater box.

One of the two above solutions will cure your problem. I see both quite often.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance.
