if you have AC then check your drain hose to see if its clogged first. its a small 90* hose that is about an inch long near and below the 2 heater hoses in the engine compartment. this is caused by leaves and debris bunching up in the evaporator core case. then check your heater core to see if its leaking. you can clean the evap case by removing the blower case. don't think you need to remove evap case to remove heater core. I don't remember.

Make sure the drain for the a/c box is clear. Did you run any wires through the firewall boot? Seal with silicone if so. My windshield is the source of my leak.

I don’t hardly ever use my air conditioner but I did use it a couple of days ago so that may be it. If it’s the heater core my truck would have over heated wouldn’t it have. If it is the heater core that’s an easy fix. Pull the dash and replace them done. To me it’s that easy anyways lol

Ok I checked and it is coming from the evap. I think the hose is clogged.

blow some compressed air in the tube. the evap box is probably full of pine needles and rotting leaves with a mix of mold. i cleaned mine out in 2014 and put screen under the cowl covers, and mine still plugged up last week. i turned a hard left turn off the freeway and it had been really humid and raining. the water sloshed out of the evap box and inside the fan cage, blowing an ice cold mist all over my face which scared the fuck out of me. then i knew what it was as the floor got flooded.


i got home and stuck my air nozzle in there, it gurgled inside the cab and probably drained more than a quart of water out.

My rear window seal was torn at the top driver side and causing the carpet between the driver door jamb and the seat to be really wet after it rained. I used an entire tube of clear silicone around the tear and it has not leaked at all.

Pull the glove box and the metal plate behind it to gain access to the blower resistor in the evap box, remove the blower resistor, one electrical plug and 2 phillip screws, make sure the inside of the evap box is free of debris, if it is full use a shop vac and clean it out best you can, debris in the evap box will cause the drain hose to clog, pic of my evap box when I bought my truck showing it was full below:
