Water in footwell seem to b coming from above fusebox and running down wires

Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 22-01-2018

Answers :

Pop the bonnet and look around near the battery and on the other side ensure the drain holes are not clogged with leafs etc as thats the main cause of water running in. If the water is hot then it could be the heater core or heater control module loacted in the centre of the dash visible from the bonnet side with 2 pipes going in.

Hesitating, loss of power seems to be running hot not the water but maybe the oil ever come accross any such thing? I've replaced the moduel spark plugs, wires, rotor,timing chain and sprokets, EGR valve, replaced the screens on fuel injectors

What causes an engine to over heat and loss of power is, bad timing, bad radiator, bad thermostat, bad water pump, clogged catalic convertors, fan clutches/ electric fans, hope this helps in a way. ... 1993 GMC Sierra K1500

The engine on my sons 91 Mazda Miata is running ruff. Like on 3 cylinders. If I pull the spark plug wire on the #1 cylinder the engine runs the same. If I pull the spark plug wires on the #2,3, or 4 cylinders the engine runs worse or dies. It seems to be getting a good spark but I changed the plugs and wires anyway and the problem remains. While running the engine with the #1 spark plug wire removed there is no accumulation of fuel on the spark plug. It's bone dry. Nor does any fuel come o

Over heating when i fill the cooling system to the right level and run my car the water in the overflow starts to boil and come out of the overflow. the cars fan works so it does not register hot on the gauge. but after running for 5 or so miles it starts the boiling thing. i flushed the system by taking the hose that runs to the engine from the overflow off and hooking a hose up to a flush kit and running water through the system, when i did this the water seeme to have ran through everything a

1994 F150, 351/auto/4wd/ext cab, keeps blowing computers. I read 14.7 volts across the battery when running, seems a bit high but not extreme. I bought it in Georgia last week, ran fine coming home to Ohio. No dash lights, so I replaced all the bulbs. I r/r'd the original computer so I could run a new radio antenna wire. Drove it a day or so, seemed fine. Then, I started it up and noticed no miles displayed, speedo didn't work, and very hard shifting. Put in a salvage yard computer and di

The cooling fan does not go on and the temperature gauge does not show signs of overheating but it over heats and comes out of the little over flow hose. The fan does come on with the ac running. I only put water in the radiator cause of the fan not turning on when it should. I change the radiator, thermostac,water pump, and the temperature cooling sensor. So I need to check the wires for a short or something

After replacing all that its going to take the fan awhile to kick on but tis going to over heat fast with just water its got alot lower boweling point than coolant may be doing this faster than what the fan can kick on ... 1996 Mazda Millenia

My 1993 Toyota T100 has a running issue. it happens when its wet out. truck starts and runs well till it gets to temp. while driving it stops revving at 1,800 rpm and does not let the throttle operate again till 1,500 rpm. there's no stuttering or shaking. it just seems like a limiter is on it. I have replaced the plugs, wires, cap and rotor and it cleared up for a few days. the issue only seems to come out when it rains now.

Keeps stalling Feels like I am running out of gas. First felt like the Rav started to "hick-up", then stalled out as I was coming to a stop. Now seems to happen almost every time I try to come to a stop or take my foot off the accelerator. I have to put in neutral and rev the gas to keep engine running. Engine light is now on since the first stall out. Fuel filter has been replaced and problem still persists. AutoZone site suggests changing the wire set and spark plugs or possibly the fuel pump.

Engine noise I have a 1997 Wrangler 2.5L. When running there is a good bit of noise that appears to be coming from the water pump. The rest of the engine is tight and clean. There are no oil leaks around the main seals and no water leaks around the water pump or shaft. When I take the serpentine belt off and start the engine the noise disappears. The idler pulleys seem to be fine as well. I am thinking the water pump needs to be replaced. What do you think?

You guessed it, the shaft bearings are shot. ... 1995 Jeep Wrangler

Turn signal left blinker and driver running lights all rear don't come on. Bulbs replace and fuses are all good. It seems to be a wiring problem. Is there a diagram for the wire harness and how check the signal. Also the van is wired for a 4 wire harness to trailer. The trailer side checks out with a LED tester. Thanks, Greg

Hello Greg. Almost definitely you have a poor ground in the rear of your van due to corrosion. Get under the van in the problem area and trace the ground wire to the frame. Generally you will find that the area is corroded. Unscrew or unbolt the ... 1996 Plymouth Voyager

I have an 1998 Audi A4 2.4 V6...I have noticed it is running rough and then when driving for a couple of min it seems to pick back up, i did notice today that there was smoke coming out of the grill and the smoke was coming from the back of the engine, I also noticed that smoke, clear smoke was coming out of the exhaust two min after turning the engine off, I did go through a deep ford the other day and I am thinking water in the exhaust but I am not sure if it is that.

P0300 means random missfire. generally that means electrical problem. You replaced cap and rotor. how about the ignition module? this problem can be caused by a loose contact in the ignition system somewhere. Very hard to track down. ... Nissan Quest
