Try mounting some sort of drip surface to allow condensation that forms to run down and away instead of into cab kind of like a funnel type idea because water comes off the alluminum condenser tank....

There is a drain hose that is probably plugged. Under the hood, but close to infront of the passengers feet. It's low and a little hard to find, but a good chance it has mud or dirt in it.

What is that musty smell cming form my air conditioning and heat in my 2008 Ford escape


Either a coolant leak or water getting into the cabin.

Pull the carpet back & make sure they are not soaked,
before you diagnose thing further

Sun roofs leak onto the carpet also

Much water under front carpet of 2002 Toyota Sienna. seems to coming from up under dash on firewall I think, what say you.


If the Water smells like Antifreeeze then it is your HEATER CORE

If the water smells like Water or Dirty Water, then you have a LEAK.

Here is a TRICK..

Get an Aresol Can of WINDOW CLEANER.... Spray completely around your Windshield on OUTSIDE EDGES... YOU WANT IT FOAMY.

Get an AIR HOSE and BLOW the Windshield from the INSIDE and see where the leak is coming from.....

It has ALWAYS worked for me

Mercedes Benz B Class 150 SE Fishy smell when you get into the car. However once engine running smell goes somewhat. Then when engine is turned off the smell comes back.


Could be some type of fluid leak, possibly coolant entering
the fan housing inside under the dash

Or a water leak from sun roof onto carpet

Nasty molding musty smell...started iout of the blue. It is now early spring have not used A/C yet. It is making me sick


Musty smell comes from three possible situations.
First is simply a spilled liquid on the carpet. A thorough carpet cleaning will get this.
Second, water entering the body of the car. (IE: leaking door seals , window seals, or the hardest to find... coming in under the carpet from the floor pan) Barring leaks from the seals and spills, The floor pan has drain holes and rubber plugs that may dry out and allow water from below the car to enter.
Third, Your A/C unit is developing this condensation in the Air flow Box (complicated air flow box under dash holding your heater core and A/C core) This is a common problem, but requires a de-mold solution best applied by a Pro. You can buy over the counter solutions (sprays) and then make sure you run the heater after each A/C run. That works for many as it dries out the condensation the A/C produces.

Hope this helps.

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.

Floors in the front are wet and the car is starting to smell


Three possibilities--the windshield is leaking water, the heater core is leaking antifreeze (should smell like antifreeze), or the air conditioner evaporator (near the heater core) has a plugged drain tube and the water condensed out of the warm air is running back into the cab. Hope this helps!

2005 Toyota Corolla - car smells after rains


Look under the passenger side of the dash, behind the carpet. Feel the back side of the carpet for dampness. If so, try this: In the same area, look for a black rubber hose that comes from the heater plastic box, and pokes thru the firewall. See if it is plugged up. This is the drain pipe for the AC box, and the cowl panel if the side drains are plugged up. Try that, and please get back to me.

Toyota Tacoma 2003 hiss when turning left and water drips


probably water that came in from the outside cabin air intake underneath the windshield and its running through the vent system draining out through the floor vents. run the blower on medium or high speed to help dry it out.
