Re: Q Flood

Two ideas:

1) If it only happens after a rain storm or you wash the car, you have a
weathersealing problem, likely around the windshield

2) If it happens when the A/C is on, possibly the condensate drain tube is
clogged. Check under the car with the A/C running; you should see water 
dripping slowly from under the car behind the engine.  If not, jack it up &
try to find the drain tube and see if it is clogged.

I have had both of the above occur at one time on one or another of my

 Subject: Q Flood
 The floor on the passenger side of my '87 4Q is soaked!  It appears to be
 water, but does not smell, taste, or look like antifreeze.  Is it possible
 that the heater core has gone south?
 Never heard of this happening on the 4000.  What's a new core cost these
 days?  Does installation require breaking something?  Any tips, thoughts,
 insights, condolences glady accepted.
 The usual thankz, etc.
