Water is leaking from the floor vents what could be the proble?


Check your heater radiator. It is usually mounted behind/near the glove box areas on most cars. It is like a small version of the large radiator that is mounted on the front of your vehicle under the hood. Antifreeze and coolant (does it smell a little like antifreeze?) flows thru your front radiator, thru the block and hoses, and cycles thru the radiator for your heating system. If the radiator is leaking, often it cycles thru the vents on the interior.
Another possibility MIGHT be the AC system and condensation/AC coolant that is building up in/on the lines and transferring thru the vents.

Com theres steam coming out of the vents


Is it steam from your car overheating? Or could it be a freon leak? When you say steam is coming out of your vents, it doesn't give us much of a place to start.

My front defroster is not working at its best, however the back one is working properly. If I add any heat while trying to defrost my windows the problem get worst.


Sounds like the heater core is leaking coolant. If it is leaking it will blow steam out of defrost vents and fog the windshield. Symptoms: low coolant level in radiator, steam coming out vents when engine is warmed up, odor of anti-freeze coming out of vents, wet carpet in floorboard near heater blower motor.
If so, replace heater core.

Radiator overflow steaming when driving 15 to 20 mile distance, don't have a manual to see if there is another location to put in radiator fluid or water, temp is normal, and nothing seems to be leaking,...


Yes, the cap could be it. But, I would also check the strength and concentration of the antifreeze/coolant to make sure it's 50/50.

Also, check that the fan is coming on for the radiator, even though it may seem to not be overheating.

Good luck on this repair.

Heating / air conditioning control stuck to front defrost vents


There is a vacuum leak under the hood. Find the vacuum line on the passenger side where it comes through the firewall and follow it to the engine. You system needs vacuum to operate and without it the default setting is on defrost for safety reasons.

Ac not cooling well - noticed 2 days ago steam coming out of ac vents.


That was probably not steam but escaping freon coming from the vents. Probably the best course of action would be to take it to an AC repair shop.

Fishy, steam odor coming from AC vents


Forget the radiator tank. Your AC 'Condensate drain' hose is plugged up. This is a common problem. If you know where the hose comes out under the car you can ( carefully ) push a wire up it. If you're lucky it's plugged near the end by a mud-dauber wasp. If not, take it to your dealer and see if you can persuade the write-up guy to show you where the drain outlet is as a gesture of good faith. If they insist on charging you money, consider that when you buy your next car...

Smoke or steam coming from vents, not overheating, codes read 12 and 43.


I think it probably is the heater core leaking.As the water eats up to boiling point small cracks will allow steam to escape. Probably smells like coolant.
