Default Possible parts to leak into car?

When I cleaned the 1998 SE the other day the passenger floor seemed like it had gotten wet at some point. Now I remember my sister saying the heat doesn't work as well anymore (heater core leaking??) But what are other things the could be causing a small leak into the cabin?

A heater core should be noticeable by the sweet smell that coolant gives off. Also by the fogging of the windows.

Water is a good possibility. I'd search on Jr's3800 and water or leak. He found about every source of a leak on his 95 last year. The only thing missing is sunroof.

Alright, Ill look for that. And I don't have a sunroof so no need to worry about that

If it only gets wet in the summer, when you run the A/C, it could be that the drain for the evaporator is plugged causing the water to overflow into the car instead of draining outside.
