4k taking on water

My 4kq was also leaking at a variety of places under the dash, could never
narrow it down to a specific place. I checked all along the windshield gasket,
and never saw a really obvious place where water was getting in: no evidence of
drips in the dust or anything. However, after I had them squirt the goop under
the window gasket, the leaks stopped. They were sure I was wasting the few $$'s
it cost, but I had them do it anyway and no more leaks. I'm saving up those few
more $$'s to have them do the back window as well as I'm still getting water in
the trunk. I also need to seal up the tail-lights as well.
