Question about 1995 Oldsmobile Achieva
I have just had the "low coolant level" come on. However, there's lots of coolant (it doesn't mean freon, does it?) and the oil is fine, gauges all reading normal. The heater is set to the highest setting, but it just blows icy cold air and the slight smell of something similar to radiator steam, although there isn't any when I open the hood. Did you experience anything like this before you had to replace the entire cooling system? I know it's a different year, but doubt there's much difference between them - mine's a Special Edition also, if that makes any difference at all.
It sounds like your heater core is plugged or shot thats why it blows cold. that smell your smelling is rad fluid that is leaking from your heater core into the car. the heater core is located behind your dash board, htats all i can tell you i've never done a heater core in a achieva before, good luck
