Why is coolant on the floor of your car?
Because the case is cracked and/or a cell is ruptured. That's probably not just water leaking on the floor. I suggest you buy some cat litter or floor dry and clean that up, quick.
You have a leaking heater core. You might smell antifreeze if you turn on the defroster.
Your heater core is leaking.
Leaking Heater Core Another possible cause of wet carpet, especially in the front of the car, when it hasn't been raining, is a leak from the heater core.Car heaters circulate coolant through the dashboard area to heat the car, and if the heater core springs a leak, coolant can drip onto the floor.
There are a lot of reasons why your cars is leaking coolant , some can be a bad water pump, a bad upper radiator hose or a lower or it can be a bad radiator it self , is can be bad head gasket,or your radiator is not holding Enough PSI the normal range is 8-14. so i hoped i help the best i could.
A damp carpet or water on floor passenger side situation can be caused by a plugged AC condensate drain line, a leaking heater core, leaking windshield seal, a problem with sunroof drains or water ingestion from the fresh air intake on your car's HVAC system.
The coolant fan may have a blown fuse. The electric motor, on the coolant fan may be not working. The ground wire on the cooling fan may be corroded or loose.
it probably means you have a hole in your tube, you should get this checked-out as it will soon run out and cause your engine to over-heat, try not to use your car at all until you can bring it in to a mechanic
Answer: Water is leaking in from under your glove box because you either have an evaporator drain that is clogged, or you have some other leak.You'll need to find the point of entry by either water testing your vehicle, or try unclogging the evaporator drain by using a coat hanger or compressed a...
If it is water, it could be a plugged condensation drain for the ac. If it is engine coolant, it could be a leaky heater core.
well could be your throttle positioning sensor ... but that's not a definite answer
Why does your 1999 Oldsmobile intrigue leak on the passengers side floor when the air conditioning is on?
Condensate drain plugged or disconnected
It could either be your thermostat or your waterpump. In either case you could have full coolant levels but with a faulty thermostat or water pump your car will still over heat. I would start with the thermostat because those are usually the cheapest and easiest to fix.
Some cars have a sensor in the reserve tank that sticks or the sensor on the engine is gone. Get a manual for you make and it will show the locations.
Why is the passenger side of your car floor soaked when it rains but there are no wet spots on the roof or windows?
Simple, you have a leak. Suspect that it is leaking from the cowl. Check the drain for the condenser and see if it is plugged. Check for debris below the window in the channel.
Your probable source here is going to be condensation from the AC evaporator.
If this happens all the time and not only in a rain storm, a wet passenger floor is probably caused by a leaking heater core. The heater core channels engine coolant inside for use heating the interior. There may also be excess condensation (fog) on the inside of the windshield. Those with experi...
Bad head gasket or cracked head. If you continue to drive it you will cause serious damage to internal engine parts.
The condensation drain is plugged. We don't know what vehicle you have so we can't tell you where the drain is located.
There is a weep hose that drains water from the evaporator. When it clogs or comes off you get a flood there. Clear the hose out and it should be fine. Its behind the glove box.
Two ways off the top of my head that this can happen. First is a plugged evaporator core drain. As you your Air Consitioning runs, it will form condensation that drops off the evaporator core and through a drain that is typically on the passenger side firewall area. The second way, When there is ...
Your Coolant Pressure Light comes on when your engine is overheating due to insufficient coolant.If you remove the radiator cap or open the coolant reservoir before the engine has had a chance to cool sufficiently, the buildup of steam inside the cooling system could give you a very nasty burn.
because i pushed it there with my foot
A common cause of car overheating is a low-cost thermostat stuck closed, restricting coolant flow.A blown head gasket can be the cause or the result of car overheating issues.Coolant can leak out, air gets sucked in, and the engine temperature needle wraps around to full hot.Plugged heater core.
your acceleration peddal is jammed take it to a local mechanic and it should cost about 500 at the most at the least 100
This is good for checking fluid levels such as engine and transmission oil levels.Also good for adjusting headlights.
Don't know what vehicle you have but, sounds like the duct work came apart for the middle vents.
The clutch sticks to the floor sometimes if the pedal does not return to pressure plate, which has metal fingers arranged concentrically. YouÊneed to check the master clutch cylinder container to see if the fluid has all leaked out.
Why is your 93 rx7 leaking coolant from the overflow tank on cooldown replaced caps and heaters work fine?
The cap may not be properly sealed or the breather hole in the reservoir may be faulty. It is also necessary to check the over flow tank for flaws. If everything is fine, it may be time to change the engine.
It is safe to drive, it won't burt into flames. Your concern should be the mold that will eventually grow.
If it is wet with engine coolant you have a leaky heater core.If it is wet with water you have a plugged AC condensation drain.
A radiator cap can cause the system to boil and spit out all of the coolant.Plus, the hose will begin to get cooler as the coolant travels through the hose.If the thermostat was replaced and you still have a boiling issue, then the head gasket has burned on the engine.
Cement floor is hard...if u fall...u get hurt...badly...real bad...If it is more than 100 ft drop...U DIE!
Yes! It works just the same, antifreeze is preferred though especially if you live in a colder climate or in the northern states where it will freeze. if you have water in your cooling system and it freezes your whole engine will basically be frozen solid and you'll have to wait for it to thaw. B...
Why is your 1990 ford tempo loosing antifreeze through the dash and floor and the heater no longer works?
Sounds like your heater core is bad and your engine is low on coolant

It is possible that your car AC drain hose is plugged with dirt and the condensate is instead collecting and dripping into the vehicle. I tried not using the AC for a day but when I got into my car the next morning the ground was still soaked. Could there be problems with the drainage from my sun...
Hey Humayun==It would help if you stated what kind of car you have. If you have automatic headlights there is a module under the dash that controls them and it is bad. On some cars, the lights stay on until the door is opened. GoodluckJoe
Sticking or binding in the pedal linkage, cable, cross shaft, or pivot ball are common causes.Sometimes a blockage or worn seals in the hydraulic system can also cause a hard clutch.Another problem associated with clutches is a worn throw-out bearing, sometimes called a clutch release bearing.
Common causes are leaks in the ceiling or a crack in the exterior of the home which both permit water to enter.If the water is seeping up through the floor, it could be a result of insufficiently-sealed foundations or there could be cracks in the foundation floor.
Theres a leak. Probably a hose but could be radiator or heater core, water pump or engine core plug
If it's boiling..then it has a stuck thermostat and needs to be replaced. I would would replace it with a new one.Also..Change the Coolant temperature sending switch (brass lookin nut with wires going to it near thermostat housing).. this controls the on/off function of the electric fan attached ...
Your coffee holder isn't holding your coffee? :-) If it doesn't smell like antifreeze (heatercore leak) then I would be suspect of a plugged drainhole in the wiper transmission cowl area. This time of year leaves will plug it up and water flows in through the firewall area. It would also be good ...
The Coolant Temperature sensor is defective.
When water is pumped around a hot engine it gets very hot. It then goes into the top of the radiator and down the thin tubes to the bottom of the radiator. When the car is moving, or if the fan is spinning, the water in the radiators thin tubes is cooled. Then it goes back in the engine, heats up...
The piston has slipped off the fork or the fork is broken.
Usually when the break petal goes all the way to the floor, it indicates a leak in the break system. The most common causes are: no break fluid in the master cylinder due to a break line opening or a leaking valve in the master cylinder itself. if it is a power break system, then the vacuum as...
your rad has a hole in it or u have a brokin rad line
So, it's OK to set or store your battery on concrete.” Encased in steel, an Edison cell battery placed directly on a concrete floor would discharge more quickly than normal.A subsequent innovation, encasing the battery in hard rubber, also had its drawbacks, as rubber is both made of carbon and ...
Check for a vacuum leak either under the hood or under the dash areaCheck the operation of the vacuum actuated motors under the dash areaCheck the operation of the selector switch
you probably need to change your fuses you probably need to change your fuses
Check the door seal u can do this by hanging a piece of paper from inside and running a blow dryer around the outside of door and see if the paper moves.
I was putting in a new stereo in my car and i was pushing with a screwdriver to pushing the wires throw i cause the lights interior not working and the clock keeps going back one oclock when turned off and car door bleeper and stereo not work at allYou probably blew a fuse, check the fuses.
You should play the lotto because lady luck has been on your side. You need to have a trusted mechanic inspect your cooling system to determine where the coolant has been going.
If you have coolant on the top of the engine it could be a leaky thermostat housing or a leaking intake gasket.
The clutch pedal dropping to the floor indicates no pressure to hold it up. In a hydraulic system the master cylinder or slave cylinder have either gone bad or the fluid is too low. If fluid is low then air has gotten into the lines preventing the pressure from operating the clutch. This can also...
A leak from any water hose or the water pump, or even a freeze plug may be dripping down the side of the engine, making it appear it is a leak from under the engine. You need to get under the vrhicle to find exactly where the coolant is leaking from.
Methinks what you want to know is why your partner hasn't included your name on the lease for the vehicle. If that's true, then you have to talk with your partner and find out what's going on. But then again, if you are not married to that partner then not having your name on the lease means that...
catalytic converter converts some oxides to water, so water not a surprise in and of itself. Is there Antifreeze in your exhaust moisture? are you sure it is antifreeze? are you loosing coolant reservoir level at a measurable rate? Coolant only gets into exhaust by way of the cylinder head develo...
Check your master cylinder, if it is still full or even partially full after you have tried the brake pedal several times, it's probably the master cylinder. if either side of cylinder reservoir is empty then you have a leak somewhere. Fill up the reservoir and pump the brakes several times and s...
The rear lights of your car will still on even if your car was off because the switch was turned on and it will still remain on until the battery's out.Another possibility, if the headlight switch is off and the ignition switch is off, the brake light switch may be out of adjustment or broken and...
Coolant flows through your radiator, water pump, water hoses and through internal engine passages to keep the engine from overheating.If the coolant level becomes too low, too dirty or too contaminated, it cannot properly cool the engine.The engines in today's vehicles cannot withstand excess heat.
The head gasket also keeps the coolant and motor oil separated from the chambers and serves as a passageway for the liquids to flow.A blown head gasket occurs during overheating when the engine runs at an excessive temperature due to loss of coolant, or blockage in the coolant hoses or radiator.
Start by positioning a fan, two if possible, so that it blows across the car's floors and seats from one side to the other.A shop fan is perfect for this.Keep the car's doors open and leave the fans running for at least a day inside your garage.This should thoroughly dry out any remaining moisture.
TAke the seats out and then the floormat. Hang the mat out to dry and replace the jute backing available at a auto trim store. Make sure the mat is completely dry before reinstalling it or it will mildew and stink like HECK.
If you were to overfill the coolant in your car, then it would start to overflow and come out of the car. The most damage that this would probably do would be getting the coolant on the ground and wasting it.?æ
It could be that you have a leaking heater core, which resides inside your car. Another give-away for a leaking core would be a sweet smell inside the car and/or a sticky residue on the inside of your windshield.
Maybe a bad heater core
Why is coolant boiling and losing fluid on 2000 dodge stratus Boils out of the top of the fill when you romove the radiator cap?
You most likely have a blown head gasket.
No. Windshield washer fluid is specially designed for removing road grime, dust, bugs, etc. from windshields. It is formulated to keep it from freezing at low temperatures, but it is not antifreeze, the stuff in the radiator. The two systems are separate.
I have a 1999 maxima, now i guessing this is a Nissan remote car starter because it's said Nissan on the key chain lol. I pressed the button twice and dash board lights comes on, it's turning over like (when u try to start a car when there no fire to distributor) it wants to start but i guess wen...
This could be a number of things: A leaking brake line, a blown master cylinder, a blown seal on a caliper or a blown wheel cylinder on a drum brake, however, the last two you are likely to feel the brake in the vehicle lock up when you try to stop.Agreed, all true. But the most common reason is ...
Smell Five: Rotten Eggs If you only smell it with the fresh air intake on, which is likely going to be the case, then it's being drawn into the car.The most common cause of this type of smell is hydrogen sulfide from the catalytic converter, which can be caused by a bad catalytic converter or fu...
The head gasket seals the engine block and cylinder heads.If a head gasket fails it may cause a serious coolant leak and overheating or may be a small leak that is hard to detect.Worse yet the coolant may try to mix with your engine oil.Solution: The solution for a blown head gasket is to replace...
This happens because of evaporation from the reservoir.Problematic situations may arise if there is a loss of too much coolant within a short time.This is often indicative of problems such as leaks, the inability of the radiator cap to hold pressure, or a highly heated cooling system.
Usually, this means that there's a leak in the cooling system somewhere. It could be a split hose, a leaking radiator or a perished gasket. I advise having a thorough look around the car's engine to see if there's evidence of leakage- dripping water, or chalk-like stains running down from a joint...
