Sounds like the AC condenser drain is plugged. Do you notice a puddle under the right front while idling with the AC running? If not, the drain is plugged should be an easy and cheap fix at any local garage.

    Usually no real damage but you should go to a car wash and use their vacuum to get up as much water as possible. The drain can be hard to get to so you will probably need to go to a garage where they can put it on a lift to clean the drain (assuming that is the problem). Does the inside of the car smell like antifreeze? If so it could be a leaking heater core, (NOT what you want).

look on the back of the sleeve the serpentine belt came should have multiple diagrams showing the setup you just have to choose the one for your engine. to replace unbolt the back of the alternator remove the belt and work backwards to install belt.

you have to pull on the belt to get give from the tensioner unless you have the required tool... it makes it A LOT easier but nothing a little elbow grease cannot handle

SOURCE: no heat in a 2002 ford taurus, need free

If it's not the thermostat I have seen this happen numerous times in Fords. The engineers, in their infinite wisdom, placed the heater core HIGHER than the engine block. The coolant gets low and ya get an air pocket in the core. The fix...drain cooling system, remove t-stat and drill a small hole in the flat part, reinstall it with hole straight up (It's an air bleed, if ya didn't figure that out), refill the system NOT THE REGULAR WAY!!!! Remove the hose that runs from the engine to the heater core. Use a funnel and SLOWLY pour coolant in, until the reservoir is full. This will eliminate the air lock in the core.

you may need a car electrician as these things need troubleshooting.the only thing you can do is by checking all fuses however if other gauges and indicator lights are working then the fuse for the inst. cluster is ok.the speedometer has a sensor installed on the transmission while the odometer gets signal from the ECU so these two problems need separate solution

First I would suggest you try to get a print out from the dealer for the computer test they did on the car. The computer test should have given them a very good idea of what was wrong before they started fixing anything. Also what they fixed should be under warrantee. If you are still having the same problem, it should have been something they addressed in the beginning.

There are drains for the sunroof that are located in the coners of the roof, these plug up and the water drains into car, you will need to remove the cover were the seatbelt is and see if the hose that connects to the drain fell off or if drain is plugged, open the roof all the way back and using a bottle filled with water , pour over the drains one at a time and see if it drains if not you will need to use a coat hanger and unplug them but i would still check for the hose off on the side that leaks water. good day.

I have a 2001 DEVILLE. I am getting two inches of water on the floor in from of the back seat on the passenger side of the vehicle. Nothing is visably wet anywhere but on the floor.

Is it wet in the front passenger also? I had this problem a few months ago and 1 of the gurus from here told me to check the ac drainage hose under the was clogged. Other than getting soaked once i unclogged it, it was pretty easy. Good luck

Look underneath behind the passenger side front wheel. You might need to remove the plastic mud guard. It would be easier to see if you jacked it up and put it on jack stands.

Wet rear floor

Have you by any chance jacked up the passenger side, or got vehicle on a hoist to make sure there isn't any plugs on the underside that may have fell out? They could be round or oval metal or rubber plugs, probably in that area.
