Hi. I'm sorry, I need a few more details in order to aid with your inquiry. If your passenger floorboard is wet, you may have a leaking heater core. If the vehicle is not starting properly and you believe the rotary engine is flooded, have the ignition system inspected. If you need further assistance, I recommend you have a certified technician, like one from YourMechanic, diagnose the leak and suggest an appropriate repair.
