2005 isuzu leaking water at exhaust connection


This can be a result of blown head gasket. Your vehicle is suppose to have water build up in the exhaust but this is limited to a small quantity. if it pours out, you have a water port which leaks to the exhaust. replace as soon as possible to avoid further engine damage. the flange gasket is also not good anymore this is why you can see the water coming out there.

I have a Weather King AC/Furnace in the attic that's dripping water into the drain pan. When we purchased our new house it came with this unit and it never dripped ater. Now, the water is dripping towards...


I assume it is dripping water when the AC is running. If you look at the attic unit, there should be a PVC pipe running from the unit - probably an insulated PVC pipe. This pipe probably goes across the attic to the edge of the house and drains outside. The drain pan may also have a drain pipe, but the one on the AC unit is the issue, and is probably plugged. Go outside and see if you can locate the AC drain pipe. See if the ground is wet below the pipe and if water is steadily dripping from the pipe (with AC running). If the pipe and ground are dry, the pipe is plugged. If you have a wet/dry vac, try connecting it to the drain pipe outside to see if you can **** the pluggage out. If you can get it clear, water should start dripping out of the pipe. This same thing happened at our house. I decided to cut the pipe in the attic, and add in a PVC isolation valve, tee, and water hose connection with plug, so I can valve out the AC unit from the pipe, remove hose connection plug, and hook up a water hose and flush the line to outside. Lowe's sells all of the PVC pipe fittings. The water pressure from the hose will always flush out the algae and crud to the outside of the house. I can also remove the plug and pour a cup of bleach down the drain pipe every couple of months to keep algae growth in check. I also cut out the trap (u-leg) from pipe in the attic and purchased a ready made trap a Lowes (the contractor who built our house had made a lousy homemade trap). I purchased a few PVC elbows and installed the trap on the drain pipe outside. By the way, our AC drain pipe comes out of our wall outside and drains near our outside unit. Our secondary drain pan drain pipe comes out outside from an eave on the side of the house. I don't know what you drain line looks like (it may have a port to add bleach, or some cleanout provisions, maybe not). If you choose to modify/improve it, then make a sketch of it, go to Lowe's and get the PVC parts you need + PVC pipe primer and cement. PVC cement dries fast. Remember, the pipe must flow downhill from you AC attic unit. You can use a regular wood saw to cut the pipe. I hope this helps you. You need to keep the drain line clear as algae will continue to grow in it. Pouring bleach in the line every month or two helps. You also need to check maybe once a month that the line is draining properly (check to see if dripping outside). You can get some serious water damage to your ceilings if the water backs up and overflows. I discovered that our drain line was plugged just in time as our drain pan drain line was also partially plugged and drain pan was about to overflow.

Water leaking from indoor unit against the wall.


It's probably the insulation around your refrigerant pipes. If it is too thin or missing in a section they will condensate.

2003 Jeep Cherokee Leaks Water on Passenger Side


Just had ours fixed, look on engine side of firewall, if the outlet pipe in passenger well is a 3/4 inch long pipe projecting forward into engine bay with no tubing leading down towards the ground, the problem is water comes out trickles back with pressure in engine bay to foam seal under the pipe and enters footwell inside car.
Take a piece of rubber tubing and hose clamp it on and direct it down towards ground in engine bay and the problem will be solved!
We have gone from soaking carpet to no leak at all with this simple fix.

Water/ac leak on driver side


If it is only leaking on the driver side, you are likely not clogged up again, but the drain seal on the firewall has failed.

When this happens, the condensate leaving the system manages to run back in to the car as well as drain outside the car, resulting in water puddling but only on the driver side (the drain pipe is located about 2 inches from the gas pedal).
Think about trying to pour water out of a glass, some water always runs down the side. This is what happens as the water exits the vehicle too. Some of the water runs down the side of the drain tube, and when the seal has failed, it allows that water to re-enter the car.
The bad news is that in order to replace this seal, the evaporator box needs to come out again, essentially the same job you had performed to clean the debris out.
The good news is, they should have replaced this seal while you were apart for cleaning and it should be under a 12mo warranty hopefully. If they did not replace it (check your receipt for "MR958200"), they failed to repair the vehicle correctly per Mitsubishi repair instructions and could be held liable for failing to replace a seal that is destroyed during the repair procedure.

Excessive Leak


Remove the plug and tilt the AC slightly downward on the outside so the water will flow outside where it is supposed to go. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Leaking air conditioner unit


I suppose that the water is coming from the unit where the blower motor is. Condensation is created by the evaporator coil while its running and is suppose to drain into a pan under it and through a pipe to the outside. This pipe could be stopped up. The easiest way to fix that is to blow air through the pipe from the outside. It probably comes out close to the outside unit. It could be that your inside filter is dirty causing reduced air flow and making the evaporator freeze too. Change the filter. That may help. There are other steps that you could take if these don't help. Contact me by email if you need to. Cant run over there because I'm in Missouri but may be able to help in a chat room. kstfas@yahoo.com
