A week ago I noticed water bubbling and pooling on the floor behind my driver seat. The water was clear; it had been raining that day and I'm assuming water was being thrown up into my car. I was able to soak up the water and dry it up completely with a fan. While doing so, I noticed a depression in the floor where the water had been pooling. A cursory visual didn't reveal a hole but noticed that there is a spot just below where the water pooled is softer than it should be, not a hole. Can anyone tell me how water is getting into the car and what I need to do. I am a senior on a limited income. The car is in excellent mechanical condition and I really need to keep it running. Thank you.

This vehicle is getting no oil to the camshafts and lifters. Its very noisy. If you bring the rpm up it will quite down. The oil change history of this car is poor. Is this a noted problem on this engine?
