I had water problems on my '99 like that, but I was still under
warranty, so I made the dealer find the leak. It took 4 trips in, but
they finally called in an outside company that hooked up this
contraption and pressurized the cabin of my truck, then they pumped
smoke or something that they could see in, and found where it was coming
out. It was an involved, day long process, but in my case they found
that in a couple places, where the body seams are, the glue was
insufficient/missing. One of the places was on the passenger side
firewall, where the heater hoses came in. The sealer was still there,
but not sealing....

Just my .02 pennies...
