@  KennyL : (24 July 2014 - 11:25 AM) @Rich, with cutting torches and good welders, anything is possible.
@  KennyL : (24 July 2014 - 04:50 AM) You can have a wife and kids and still mess with cars, but it requires resource micro-management. Most notably time and money spent between the family and hobby.
@  KennyL : (24 July 2014 - 04:49 AM) He's had the wife (well, girlfriend earlier on) the entire time he has had the car. I'd say the child and the turbocharger pitfall were the kickers.
@  Stratuscaster : (23 July 2014 - 02:41 PM) "Life" happened to nstenz - and his lovely wife and child.

@  KennyL : (23 July 2014 - 09:40 AM) I am kind of curious as to wheather or not he simply quit posting or totally abandoned his turbo project after the "silvastratus" event.
@  KennyL : (23 July 2014 - 09:34 AM) One of them, I do see two sometimes as well. I don't know anything factual, but I have a strange feeling nstenz might be watching still.

The drivers floor board gets wet when it's raining... It's not the sunroof and it's not the drivers window. How much stuff under the dash could leak? Anyone else had this problem? I'm sick of the musty smell in my car, any advise would be greatly appreciated.. ;)

check door when closed to see if you can move it inwards (more closed). If you tighten it up a bit by moving the striker on the door post you can tighten up the weatherstripping a bit if you see no rips in the weatherstripping as suggested in earlier posts.

Hey Fujimo, I am having the same problem with my 2001 Stratus ES. Have you figured it out what was wrong with your car? Please let me know. Where is the water coming from?

Could be from the A/C. The drain may be clogged. Usually that leak appears on the passenger side, but it could appear elsewhere.

(Remember, your A/C runs when you set the HVAC to defrost, too.)

It is so aggravating to have this kind of problem. I can not afford to take my car to the dealership and live it there until they figure it out what is wrong with it. How am i going to get to work? I am just venting out. It is supposed to rain again tonight, all night.

It may require you being in the car during a rain storm to see just where the water is coming in from.

I am not sure if I have my problem fixed or not. (wet floor board) I took the fender well cover out on the driver side because that's where I am having problem with. I found a lot of dirt build up in there and I think it is clogging up the drain holes, if there is any in that location. I think, I am not sure. It rained the night I did that work and it seems like the wetness inside my car did not get worst, but once again I am not really sure yet.

The idiot that had the car before me pulled the boot for the doors harness loose and ran wires through it, water was running down the wires into the floorboard. Just glad nothing shorted out.

I am glad you got it figured it out. I think I got my car issue fixed too. I am just waiting for that hard rain to come to see if I got it fix or not. Just like I said before, I had to take my fender well out and see what kind of mess I had in there. What I found was compacted dirt, it was so compacted that water could not drain out of it. Thanks for the reply.
