Asked by Aug 29, 2013 at 08:13 AM about the 2001 Ford Focus ZX3

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

This is the second time this has happened now but it seems as though something in my
car likes to explode with a brownish fluid into the floor of my passenger side footwell. I
cant figure out what it is or any info of it online. Was just a little bit of fluid the first time
but now it's at least half a gallons worth. Any help would be greatful.

Is it equipped with A/C? If so it maybe the drain for the A/C coil inside the heater box, if it is plugged then the water cannot drain out so the next place is right on your floor. If it doesn't have A/C then it could be your heater core leaking but you should notice a coolant smell inside the car or the cowl drains are plugged up.

I'm being told on the FordFanatics page that it is the Heater Core. The card does have A/C but I havent used it because it outputs no cool air right now (Car was a lemon when I bought it last year).
