Car leaks water inside when running A/C

2001 Mitsubishi Galant leaks water inside when running A/C. Dealership has said algae/mold grew inside and they chemically treated it. It blew black stuff all over the interior for two weeks afterward but didn't leak for a year. Next summer had same problem. It used to leak on the passenger side, then stopped on the passenger side and started on the drivers side. The dealer wants about $250.00 to flush it out again. I tried to put a wire into the drain hole on the fire wall from the engine compartment side. Very difficult to get to and didn't do any good. Carpet is trashed and floorboard is next. How can I get the water to drain outside?

    Hello, did you ever find a solution because I have the exact same problem?

  • Anonymous Sep 02, 2008

    I also have the same problem. Same year. It happened about a year ago and the dealer charged me $100 and said a drain hose was plugged. I am unable to find this hose? I hate feeding another $100 to the dealer.

    We have the same problem. When the ac is running, water accumulates on both sides of the floorboard. Suspect it's a plugged drain line. How do we fix this?

I had the same problem. Our heater core was full of leaves, so the whole dash had to be disassembled to get to it. They cleaned out the leaves and it works great. Expect about a $700-800 repair.

We have a 1997 Coleman pop up camper. We are having issues with AC. It blows out some cold air but not a lot and it keeps leaking water on the inside of the camper. I have called a repair man they said...


If you have some cooling, but not enough, then chances are that the system is low on freon. The only reason a system would need freon is because the freon leaked out. If the leak is not sealed before recharging with freon, the freon will eventually leak out again. Leak repairs are expensive so if it's a small leak it may be more cost effective to recharge the system every two or three years. Freon recharging is not a do-it-yourself job. Only people certified to handle refrigerant (freon) are allowed to recharge an air conditioning system. OR 1. Extremely dirty air filter restricting the airflow through the inside unit. 2. Extremely dirty (clogged) cooling coil restricting airflow AND IF IT IS LEAKING If you do not see ice build-up on the larger copper tubing (covered with a black, sponge insulation) when you run your system, then you probably have a clogged drain line. A clogged drain line is usually caused by algae build-up inside the drain line. And yes, there is something you can do to prevent this condition. Algae is a living plant and will grow in your drain line until it clogs the line. The air handler provides a cool, damp environment for development of molds and mildew and if left untreated these growths can spread into your ductwork. If only moderate to light buildup is present then there are chemical disinfectants specifically designed for use in air handlers that will kill the existing mold and mildew and control new growth. These disinfectants are safe and very effective and are applied by simply spraying into the filter intake and by placing "Algae Strips" directly in the drain pan. If the coil has mold or mildew present then it also should be treated. Make sure that the face of the cooling or evaporator coil is clean so that air can pass through freely. HOPE THIS HELPS :)

Need to find the air leak, go back through and make sure everything is tight, check for damaged mating surfaces as well. Check the fuel filter and make sure they didn't double gasket it, by accidentally leaving the old filter gasket in place.

Water leaking from car making puddle when parked


If its clear liquid - could be condensation from your AC.
If its greenish - it would mean your coolant is leaking.

2001 Mitsubishi Galant leaks water into passenger side floor when Air conditioner is on. Whats wrong with the car?


The A/C evaporator drain tube is most likely blocked. If you have a V6, you're in for a real treat trying to reach the thing to clear it. The tube is on the firewall behind the driver's side rear motor mount, and slightly to the left as you're facing the firewall. It is a 1/2" diameter metal tube projecting about 1/2" from the firewall, and is covered by the firewall sound and heat blocking material which has to be folded back to reach the tube. A pair of what I believe are brake lines are one finger's-width in front of it, making it VERY difficult to get to the tube. (Brilliant design, Mitsubishi!) If you are very dexterous, you can slip a small piece of wire or a cable tie under the brake lines and into the tube from the front to try and clear it. Good Luck!

My car is leaking water inside when I turn the AC on. I have a 2001 Mitsubishi Galant ES


I had a problem with water also, so I took it to the dealer. It was a clogged drain on the passenger side. I think the one that ran from the windshield wiper area. It took about five minutes fo fix and my dealer did it for free. Not sure if your issue is the same.
