leaking under dashboard 1998 ford ranger

Has anyone had this problem. I've got a leak under the dashboard that is soaking my floorboard. I can not find where it is leaking. My buddy and I are under the truck at this time trying to figure it out. Any recommendations would be appreciated. Uncle Randall

I think your air conditioning drain hose is clogged up and the air conditioning water is draining in the cab. Is there a puddle from the a/c under the truck? If not thats what it is. If thats what it is then you have to find the hose and unclog it

I'd suggest that you start by removing the heater blower (after you remove the CC, and WS and Rad reservoirs). Clean out the debris, then get the garden hose in there to flush out the remainder. You can get one hand in there to clear out the corners.

Chances are, that's all it is, debris blocking the drain hole. If it smells like anti-freeze then it'd be your heater core. Hope that isn't your problem....

It is probably the heater core. All you have to do is drain it.
