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?

    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.

I need the radio unlock code for 2001 mitsubishi galant


Remove the trim and screws to get the radio to slide out about 4 inches. You will see a sticker on top with a number. Call the Mitsubishi dealership (ask for service) with that number and they can give you the radio code over the phone.

Water leak on mitsubishi galant 1999


the probable cause is the drain for the ac coil is stopped up for an a/c leak inside.
if it smells like anti-freeze, the heater coil is leaking and may need to be replaced.

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.

It could be head gasket, the water could be leaking into the cylinder/s. Is there excessive steam coming out of the exhaust?
