Question Answered: My 97 Escort lx sedan. Collects rainwater at rear passengers feet, any ideas?

I had a dodge neon that did the same thing - on a dry day I took the rear seat out and got in the car and had my wife spray the car doors and trunk with water hose until I found the leak - mine ended up being the gaskets around the taillights and the water was collecting in the trunk under the spare tire and when I would put on brakes the water would slosh forward in the back floorboard underneath the rear seat - it was a mystery until I took seat out and did that

there should be a ABS sensor on the rear axle that screws with a wire running to it. Unscrew the sensor and clean it, should have a magnet on the end on sensor, if it gets dirty it makes the ABS light come on. If cleaning it does not work replace it. The sensor is not that expensive and would be my first try.

Try changeing the plugs with correct gap setting, wires and then try it. If no luck replace coil pack(s) and misfire can make O2 sensors read bad but are actually not, this is because it is downstream from the engine and it expects the plugs to be working correctly. (Work your way from top to bottom)

Question Answered: What cause a knocking noise 5 to 10 minutes after first start in the morning?

This is common for most engines when first started after sitting for a period of time. When a engine sits not running the oil drains back down to the bottom. When it is started the engine takes a second to pump the oil from the bottom back through the lifters in the top off the engine block creating a ticking or knocking sound. Adding a quart of Marvel Mystery Oil helps with this issue, find it at auto parts stores anywhere.

That is a simple fix, it is just the exhaust pipe. Take it to a muffler shop and have them fix or replace it. Should cost you $100 or less to repair.
