Why is water coming up through the floor?
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.
Damp Carpet or Warped Flooring: Given enough time, your concrete slab will soak up water leaking below it.Once the concrete becomes saturated, the water needs to go somewhere, and that means up into your carpets and flooring.Mold: Once water seeps into your floors, it then travels up your walls.
The easiest way for water to leak through concrete is to come in through any cracks in the floor.Ignoring cracks in your concrete floor—even those as small as 1/8 inch wide—is like inviting water into your home.These materials come pre-mixed or in concrete-like form that must be mixed with water.
Even though tile flooring is good for keeping water from leaking through, over time water will seep down into tiles and cause very real damage.If you are diligent about cleaning up spills before they can sit for too long, that should not be an issue for you at all.
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...
Honda Man's Answer Many people think they can drive through water without damage, some are lucky. When water covers an intersection, it is nearly impossible to judge how deep it is by looking at the water's surface. Many motors are replaced every rainy season due to drivers becoming wanna be U-Bo...
condensation OR blown head gasket. Is it losing water in the radiator? If so, check the compression.from condensation from setting overnight,or a cracked head or blown head gasket if U are losing water from the radiator.I no water loss U probably have a very tight exhaust system that nas no leaks...
If you mean engine coolant is getting into the car, the heater core is leaking coolant causing the coolant level to drop and that causes the engine to over heat.
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.
only if the thermostat is stuck open or has been removed
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
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.
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.
Usually caused by leak in heater coil.
Assuming the lower speeds work okay, it could be the high speed relay is bad or the switch itself. If the vehicle is equipped with cabin air filters, they could be plugged up.
stalling while driving thru water is caused by water getting into the electrics.usaully the water has been thrown over engine by the fan and the spark plugs and distributer have got wet once theses are died out the car will usually run again. this is one reason, emergency agencies tell you not to...
Failing Water Pump Pulley: The most common cause of squealing or squeaking from the timing belt cover is the water pump pulley.If the bearings in the pulley are beginning to fail, they will make noise.Serpentine or V-Belt Slipping: Another common cause here is noise transference from a slipping s...
Why would the ac and heater blow air through the defroster or the dashboard vents but not through the floor vents.?
It should blow through the floor vents. Modern vehicles generally use movable baffles in there HVAC systems, to direct air flow where the controls indicate. If the controls allow airflow to the floor, but nothing flows out, there is a malfunction between the control switch and the actuator that d...
'could be a number of things. If some water splashed up under your hood, it could have shorted out some electronics and whatnot, check your fuses. Otherwise, you are faced with the awful possiblility that you got water in your engine (first in your gas tank or otherwise). More or less, that would...
Maybe a bad heater core
You probably got the ignition wet. It will have to be thoroughly dried before it will start and run again.
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
If you have driven through water and the check engine light in your vehicle comes on, you should take your car to your mechanic. You will want to have your vehicle checked for any damage caused by the water.Probably will find that the ignition (plugs, wires, etc) got wet and triggered a misfire c...
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 ...
A leaking fuel line can be discovered by looking for gas puddles under your car when parked.A fuel-injection line may also leak, causing you to notice the smell of gas fumes during and immediately after driving.A fuel-tank vent hose may also leak, causing unburned gas to exit your fuel system as ...
you could have a hole in one of your pipes or hoses that the water went throw.
Sounds like the seal blew out or the radiator hose came off or blew.
Water is a by-product of normal combustion, especially when using hydrocarbon fuels. It's the hydrogen from the fuel combining with oxygen in the air that releases the energy in the form of heat that drives your car forward. As you well know, two part hydrogen - one part oxygen equals water. Once...
the belts on your car get wet
I am having air and dirt coming through the water pipes in your house you have a well water system any Ideas?
This is most likely a result of a crack in the well pipe, or the well head itself. You may need to call a contractor to get it fixed or replaced.
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.
If it is plain water it is probably a plugged condensation drain for the AC. If it is engine coolant it is probably a faulty heater core.
If the water is fast-moving - even 30 centimetres depth of fast-moving water could wash your car off the road.In some cases a stalled engine can result in water being sucked back through the exhaust into the cylinders - this can cause extensive and expensive damage.
As the others have said, the water comes from the combustion of the fuel.When the exhaust system is cold, it cools the exhaust enough that the water can condense.After a while of operation, the exhaust system heats up.The same water vapor is present in the exhaust, but it stays vapor and doesn't ...
Why does the heat come out at the windhield when I switch the dial to come out at the floor in my 2004 blazer?
could be a vacuum leakcould be bad selector switchdefrost is the default position for this systen
Why does the heat vent in a 1991 Sunbird only give heat through the defrost and the dash and not the floor?
The vaccum door near the gas pedal is broken or not receiving vaccum.
something with the AC contact a Lincoln dealer and they can tell you more about what you need to do. you will most likely have to take it to the shop.
electric water heater installed on concrete.If the floor is always dry, no worries mate.If it is damp or wet occasionally, then elevating the WH on some bricks or whatever keeps the bottom from rusting.He's the one who told me electric water heaters shouldn't sit directly on concrete floors.
Don't drive into flood water that's moving or more than 10cm (4 inches) deep.Let approaching cars pass first.Drive slowly and steadily so you don't make a bow wave.Test your brakes as soon as you can afterwards.Fast-moving water is very powerful – take care or your car could be swept away.
What causes the air conditioner on a 2003 Chevy trailblazer to stop blowing through the ac vents and start blowing through floor and defrost vents?
Check for a vacuum leak -sounds like it is starving for vacuum and reverts to the default position

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.
Exhaust inside a car is bad.It can come in through your vents, through the floor, or through the firewall.No matter where it's coming from, you should get it fixed because you can pass out from carbon monoxide, and if the engine keeps running after the crash it could kill you.
Water from the road has splashed up into the engine serpentine belt causing belt slippage that makes a squealing noise. The sqealing is one of your engine assessories that use the serpentine belt to drive it.
Put a small dab of clear dialectic grease on both sides of the belts and the squeak will go away.
The Uniform Plumbing Code, which establishes standards nationwide, says that the flame or sparking mechanism in a gas water heater must be at least 18 inches off the ground.This means that an accurate measurement for proper installation is not based on the distance from the bottom of the water he...
If it taste sweet it is coolant and you have a leaking heater core that needs replacing. If it is indeed water, your A/C condenser drain line is clogged. Crawl under the car, passenger side, and unclog the drain line near the firewall. Another possibility is your drain holes at the cowl below the...
Some water is normal during initial startup and is just condensation. However, if the water smells and taste sweet, you have a blown head gasket. Fix ASAP!About 1 pint of water produced through the exhaust for every gallon of petrol used.
Its water in the gasoline mixture. When the car is first started, the engine temperature is not high enough to evaporate the water in the gas, so the water travels out the exhaust pipe
It is NOT steam it is vapor, the same as looking over a lake when the ambient temperature is cooler then the lake water
I have the same problem on my 2001 Olds Intrigue.It appears to be a leak in the trunk deck at the point where the power connects through for the brake light in the spoiler.
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...
High pressure coolant is blowing out through a small hole in your heater core, it will need to be repaired or replaced.If it is warm out it might be AC refrigerant leaking.
busted raditator , check heater-core . most are found inside up under your dashboard . hope that helps you !
Either the tire is too big for the car or you could try jacking on something other than the cars body.
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.
Why would your 93 Nissan maxima have gas fumes coming through the vents particularly when it freezes?
nevermind, got it fixed. It was a corroded fuel line.
That is, a thin layer of wax will not be wetted by water.A freshly waxed car has low adhesive forces with water, so water beads up on the surface, as a consequence of its cohesion and surface tension.
Does the engine turn? It may be an electrical problem You need to diagnose it properly, you may need to let an experienced person look at it
More likely there is a leak somewhere non-visible .Heade gasket leaky?
You have to get wet and walk to wherever you were going. Cars stall when water gets over the hood and into the engine. Usually they are OK once they dry out, but have a mechanic check to be sure if you have any other problems after that.generally it is reccomended not to attempt to drive through ...
why steam come out from the air conditioner exit , in a vw Jetta 1998 when engine gets hot
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...
If the tile surface is cooler than the warm, humid room air, the moisture inside the air becomes the dampness on the floor tile when the warm air and cool floor meet.The cause can also be standing water underneath the house.This moisture causes condensation on the tile floor above it.
your mamas asscheeks spreading across the ocean
well could be your throttle positioning sensor ... but that's not a definite answer
How can you tell there is no air? If your mixture is rich you may need to change the main jet size to a smaller one.
Probably a popped freeze plug in the side of the motor block
What would cause water standing inside the car front and back on the floor on a 1999 Lincoln Town Car?
Bad window or door seal? Bad heater core? Plugged evaporator drain? Came home drunk last night and parked it in the living room aquarium? heater core went out
through a cracked heater core - possible.
possible head gasket leaking, cracked head or freeze plug rusted out.
Water from the melting ice cannot pass through the plate and the bowl has not moved how the water droplets formed in the bowl underneath the plate?
I think its because the heat of the water hit the ice and condensation formed...(that would probably get you one mark out of two...but lets see..0o^)
