Re: 1986 4000S, Water on passenger area floor

If the water is H2O and not Green, then....

Small problem, but PITA to fix. Your AC condensation drain pan is
plugged and it is overflowing into the car. The pan fills with silt
and dust. you need to remove the pan and clean it. A quick and dirty
way to clean it is by using a coat hanger (aka roto-rooter)and fishing
it up the drain hose. The hose comes out the fire wall into the engine
compartment and routes down near the heat shield of the cat.

Good luck.
