Water leaks are the hardest to find and fix. I usually strip the interior and then I can see where the water is coming in from....Check sun roof drains, door bottom drains, rear window areas for water.

Water in both back floorboards after rain 96 bonneville

Water on the floor board in the back seat is usually caused by a leaking rear window, or leaking back will need to remove the inner rear door panels to confirm the exact leak...(as long as it is warm enough:) after removing the door can ask a friend to water from a garden hose over the outside, and continue until you see the location of where the water is coming from...if the rubber seals on the top or bottom of the doors are bad...this certainly allows the rain (water) to come inside...Nice Car and worth fixing...:)

I have water on the floor on the passenger side of ny 98 town car and i don't know where it came from or how to prevent it from happening again

did you notice the water after a rain? or was it dry?

the weatherstripping around the door may be damaged. inspect for tears, missing sections, detatched sections, use a garden hose and spray aroun the door seal to see if there are any leaks. also spray around the window to see if that's leaking.

are you sure it's water and not engine coolant? the heater core may be leaking. it is located on the passenger side under the dash. is the coolant low?

there may be a hole in the floor

Floor of car fills with water in rain storms.

Guessing your car was flooded. You should be able to see them if they are there, though not usually found in cars anymore. Doors or panels with movable windows usually have provision for water to exit at their low points.

Water leaks into the floor wells

First make sure the window if sully going up on all four doors, i believe it might be the weatherstripping around one of the doors, visually inspect them carefully and make sure they are not cut, also you might want to check around the windshield on the outside and the back window as well. test it yourself with a water hose and spray water around the windows

Leakage in passenger side floor board for a 93 nissan maxima 3.0 sohc

Does the leakage smell like coolant if so most likely the heater core, if it is just plain water the evaporator core, and heater core box could have a leak from being cracked letting the condensation leak into the floor especially if the evaporator drain tube is clogged. If it only does it when it rains well roll all the windows up shut doors run a water hose all over where there is wheather strippping to see if it seeps in.
