Car question for Crazy Horse and anyone else who might know
« on: January 08, 2008, 09:45:23 AM »
I didn't want to highjack Frank's thread in the Whineyzone.....but reading the replies, a lightbulb kinda went off...specifically this one:

With the signifigant removal of fluid. I have a few questions.

http://[b]1. Is the passenger floorboard wet?[/b]
2. If you start the vehicle with the radiator cap removed does it bubble?

3. Where you bought the vehicle do they have a warranty?


I bought a used 2001 Nissan Pathfinder in 2004 with no problems at all except there's always a big wetspot on the driver floorboard.  We've had various mechanics look it over, and nobody can find the source.  It was owned by people in New York, so I was afraid the floorboard was rusted out from excessive salt, but that's apparently not the case.  But this answer to Frank has me intrigued....

What were you thinking about Frank's car would cause a wet floorboard?  Could it apply to my driver's side floorboard???  Or am I totally grasping at straws?

Not that I can tell.  Just pine sap.

Not sure about the heater core if you're not gettin antifreeze on the windshield.
We just had to change the heater core on a 99 F-150(what a bitch, had to tear the whole dash out)

The only thing other then a heater core that I can think of would be condensation from the AC condenser.
This usually results in a small puddle of water under the vehicle but maybe somehow it is tracking inside.

If it were antifreeze the smell and color (s) should be obvious.
