Fluid leaking from underneath dashboard by gas pedal--appears to be water. Sometimes sprays out or drains out a lot and soaks floor. Appears to do this when fan or air conditioning is on. Think that air conditioning drain is blocked--if so where is it

Re: 2003 toyota echo --
You are correct. The water that you are seeing is the condensate that is drained out on the street when the A/C is on. Look at the passenger side of the car, under the dash, close to the center. You will see a black rubber tube coming out of a box, and it will poke thru the firewall, towards the front on the passenger side. Remove it, expect to see water drain out on your floor. Clean it by running water thru it with a garden hose or something like that. Reinsert it and poke it back thru the firewall. This is very common for the drains to plug up.

Check your brake fluid level in the reservoir; some Toyotas have wheel cylinder sensors; some Toyotas have master cylinder sensors; you also have a sensor on the parking brake and on the brake pedal inside the cab. Check all that.
warning you should get this done by a mechanic! but if you want to give it a go there will be a drain plug at the bottom of the gearbox,once drained tighten again.there will be another plug above the drain plug this is to fill the box.fill it to the top and tighten plug.make sure you use the recommended fluid.
A P0171 code does not indicate a vacuum leak; it indicates a dirty mass air flow sensor. This device is located between the air filter box and the intake manifold. Locate it, unplug the wire harness, and remove the 2 screws that holds it onto the intake pipe. Look down inside th sensor, you will see 2 small wires, that are probably covered with fuzzy things...using a spray cleaner, such as brake cleaner, spray the 2 wires until they are clean and shiny. Do NOT use compressed air, that will damage the sensor. When it is clean; reinstall it and drive it. The computer will recognize the now clean sensor, and your troubles will be over.
Your clutch on your Echo is hydraulically operated. There are 2 cylinders, one is connected to the clutch pedal, and the other is on the transmission clutch release arm. Hydraulic fluid operates the clutch. With this system, there are no adjustments. If your clutch is "slipping", a replacement may be in order.
Just make sure you have enough differential fluid to replentish what you drain out. All you need is a seal replacement if it is leaking from the casing....it is in the rear of your car, underneath....in between the tires....looks like a round, metal case. Look to see if it is leaking from around the edges.
There could be water filling in the HVAC intake located in front of the winshield. The drains may be clogged and not releasing rain water. Unfortunately the only way to resolve this problem is removing the entire dashboard and accessing the inner core of the HVAC system.
