Condensation Problem

Hey, i noticed my carpet on the passenger side was wet awhile back after taking my son for our first ride together...it was raining that day. Seemed drivers side was wet too. Well haven't had car long and when the weather got cooler I started using the heater...think I probably had it on heat with my son, but don't remember. also had new windshield put in and had guy come back out cause all this seemed to happen after the new windshield, but I 'm 99 percent sure the windsheild is fine and not leaking. I have looked under car and noticed the plug was in the floor board, both sides...the car is lowered but did see the plugs. I think its more likely to be water from the heater core tubing. I put some baking soda down and made a baggy with holes and added some baking soda to it, just to lay down in the floor board. I couldn't feel any moisture like around the edges of the floor board where the carpet goes vertical. Please any advice on how to trouble shoot, fix or previous similar cases would be most appreciative. oh and Merry Christmas

Do you have an after market shifter? On mine I had to trim the rubber weather seal that helps keep water and such out. If that's not cut right it could possibly throw water into the cabin.

Pressure test Ur cooling system, but more than likely it's Ur heater core.

+1 i agree with this.but also check your cowl area.rain and water should be able to drain from that area but if it gets clogged up it can cause this to.

well dang. this morning the carpet is soaked! passenger side...no obvious signs where the leak is. did not drive last nite...temps got down to 32 and lots of moisture in the air so freaking water everywhere. would the heater core leak even when not running the car? and any other tricks to this core swap beside a reducer, careful with tex screws and loosening ac accumulator and having patience (which i don't rite now)

Re: Condensation Problem

ok, found nice DIY heater core replacement instructions from Trojans helpful links. Looks like it's doable, so let me see what I can do. Still would like to know for sure if this core leaks when just sitting???

I just remembered I smelt strong antifreeze smell on way home last time I drove her...its the core! crap
