Odd flooding problem :(


Its been pretty wet around here lately, and I mean WET. The other day, I went to hop in my car, only to find a puddle of water 2 inches deep on my driver side floor. Using towels to dry it up, I was able to drive. As you can imagine, I only own a limited number of towels, so I'd like to get this problem cleared up. I can't see any obvious signs of leakage, holes, or anything. Does anyone have any ideas as to how this keeps happening?

I drive a 1985 Nissan Pulsar hatchback :>. Any help appreciated D:

(i assume this is the correct forum for such a request )

Check the door seals. If a rain gutter is bad (or non-existent on that model) any door seal problem can become a flood. Does it leak more or less depending on the direction you park? (uphill, downhill, sidehill...)
There are a vast number of people who are uninformed and heavily propagandized, but fundamentally decent. The propaganda that inundates them is effective when unchallenged, but much of it goes only skin deep. If they can be brought to raise questions and apply their decent instincts and basic intelligence, many people quickly escape the confines of the doctrinal system and are willing to do something to help others who are really suffering and oppressed." -Manufacturing Consent: Noam Chomsky and the Media, p. 195

No sunroof. I can't say I've parked it on any angle other than flat... I'll check the door seals.

go find a high pressure touchless carwash and run the car through it. Any leaks should be instantly detectable.

oh good one
I checked all the seals, there is absolutley no sign of a leak I can see. I jacked the car up to see underneath, nothing suspicious there either. I took the carpet up and there's like a puddle underneath it, that's drying out now. I took to the car with a hose, spraying it in all the possible places water might get in, and still no leak. There's just no explaination for it! Help!

Don't just spray were it may leak from, spray all the areas that touch those that it may leak from. Water runs ya know
