Rain and Flooding

Why would the floor boards of a 1990 Z24 Cavalier have standing water after a rain if there is no apparent leaking anywhere?

You probably have a bad heater core. The heater core is installed in a plastic casing and the spout is there in case it starts leaking. This keeps it from leaking into the floor of the car.

The sunroof on a Chevy Cavalier can often be repaired by replacing the outer seal. This prevents rain from leaking into the vehicle and causing additional problems.

take it to a mechanic, a gas leak is nothing you want to mess with.

Its possibly leaking somewhere, get it checked out by a plumber

Freon could be leaking anywhere in the ac system. A colored dye can be added to the system, then seen with a special light to find the leak.

My 97 Tahoe was leaking coolant and I couldn't find anything on the driveway or anywhere else. I took it to my mechanic and it was a rear manifold gasket leak, cost me about 500 dollars.

Leaking or loosing coolant? If it is leaking then where is the leak? If it is just loosing coolant with no apparent leak, then you more than likely have a blown head gasket or cracked head. If there is coolant in the oil, or white sweet smelling smoke coming from the exhaust you definitely have an internal problem. Serious engine damage will occur if you continue to drive this vehicle.

The coolant sounds like it is leaking from the drain hole for the heater core. The drain is usually along the firewall and keeps the coolant from entering the vehicle should the heater core develop a leak.

User Avatar

It could be water pump, leaky radiator, hoses, head gasket, or just about anywhere else that the coolant circulates. You'll need to get under and find out where it's leaking.

It is either leaking down the inside of your firewall under the dash (master cylinder) or leaking just enough inside the trasnmission bell housing to not puddle and be thrown around by the clutch spinning (slave cylinder).

If a 1995 Chevy Cavalier overheated and will not start, try checking some of the sensors near the radiator. The radiator could be leaking which caused the overheating, and in turn, caused a sensor to get wet in the engine compartment.

leaking spark plug wires can do it and also a clogged fuel filter. it could have a bad spark plug or a bad spark plug wire a bad coil pack or ecsesive oil leaking past the valve seal and its fouling a plug

User Avatar

The fuel pressure regulator is bad, one or more fuel injectors is leaking or the check valve in the fuel pump is faulty.

User Avatar

Bad spark plug or plug wire or one or both valves leaking or stuck. Time for a compression check or spark check.

I added a yellow food colouring to the radiator and ran the engine. the leak was very apparent but I found out that mine was leaking at the water pump shaft and that made the leak very hard to find. Hope this helps. Yours truly A.G. Head

Most of the time it is because of a bad slave cylinder that does not hold pressre or is leaking. They use brake fluid and to check them look at the CLUTCH MASTER CYLINDER near the firewall.

Sounds very much like the cylinder head gasket is leaking allowing compression into the water system. with the radiator cap off bulles will be seen in the water when revving the engine. A garage workshop normally use a sniffer to check for this, not too expensive to have checked.
