Rainwater in engine valley

I am trying to figure out how this rainwater keeps getting under the hood. I noticed it due to just pulling the ipr out the other day and cleaned up everything really good. Well it rained the night after and went out the next day to check everything and had a good puddle under in the valley. Thought is was a fluke and mopped it all up nice and clean. Well rained pretty good last night and what you know nice crystal clear rain water back in the valley...... Anyone else have this issue and is it a problem I need to try and fix. Just funny, no water any where else but there from what I can tell. Some how it is running down from somewhere and accumulating right there in the valley

Never heard of this, but break out the garden hose and see where it is coming in at. I also can't see how it would hurt anything, as long as no electrical connections are sitting in water.

Might just have to do the garden hose thing. As for hurting anything I don't think it will either since it is just in the valley.

mine was FILLED with some kind of flower bulbs when I bought the truck, can't understand how all that crap gets in there. your next option is building a shop, don't forget to put in a bar/plasma.

i had a old 6.9 that i bought with a blown rod tried to figure out what would pop the rod never figured it out,got a new motor and put the original air cleaner on i noticed that the top was rusty and had a hole didnt think anything of it.next day it rained and it was hydro-locked. turns out that the seal on the hood between the back of the hood and the cowl was ripped and letting water pool up on the intake and rust it out putting a hole in it,hydro-locking the cylinder and blowing the original engine
so long story short check that seal between the cowl and hood its probably ripped
