    Flooding!!

    Hi guys, any usual suspects to look out for when trying to diagnose the reason(s) behind water in the passenger side footwell?
    I am currently on my fourth and fifth Supra relapse and desperately searching for a cure from this debilitating condition...

    Does it smell of coolant? It can be a sign of a leaking heater Matrix.

    Yeah check the coolant levels, if they are down the heater matrix is a suspect.

    You can join the in/out matrix pipes (19mm - they are on the fire wall/bulkhead just right of the intake cam covers - one pipe comes from the rear of the cylinder head) temporarily.

    It's a massive labour job if it is the matrix though

    Lovely prospect that... lol

    I'll have a look on Saturday but I'm REALLY hoping it's not this!

    If I don't use the heater, would it still leak? Also, could it be the AC?

    It just bypasses the heater Matrix, so you will need no air con anyway , it's nice and cold

    I've been using the aircon recently so was curious if that could also be a suspect? If, in the interim, I don't use the heater, will it still leak inside or would that not make any difference?

    Not sure what happens when the evaporator (behind the lower glovebox) gives out, but usually a well foot well is the heatercore, is it steaming? it will make the car loose all the coolant into the cabin if run long enough, check your rad and temp. or pull up the carpet and see what liquid it is

    It is pretty steamy in the cabin, partly why I was using the AC to get rid of the condensation... I've pulled the carpet up and will check the coolant level over the weekend, though slightly easier said than done with an aftermarket rad and catch tank! Lol the joys of a modified car...

    Hot steam and a somewhat sweet ish smell would say the heatercore. Hes a quick test. Touch the carpet and see if your hands get stickyish...would be coolant.

    The carpet is propped up at the moment as I was getting worried about the ECU and loom getting wet... I'll put it down over the weekend and go for a short drive to see if it leaks again. If it does, I'll do as advised and report back with my findings. From memory though, I don't remember smelling anything sweet about the water/liquid...
