Is your floor wet damp carpet? Does the smell kinda smell sweet or like maple syrup? If so your heater core is leaking. Your heater core is up under ur dash inside the van onthe firewall

Smoke coming right side hood


ok --we will not say head gasket problem
what would you like us to say
we can say , have a compression test done to determine if head gasket or cracked head ---but we won't
we could say take it to an accredited radiator shop for a pressure test to find any leaks
we could say to check engine oil for signs of coolant contamination ( grey oil)
it is impossible to say exactly what is a suitable answer

I have a 2009 Cadillac Escalade that I have just purchased, vents smell like maple syrup when the AC is not on Why???


Well it could be something the previous owner spilled in the vents, or sprayed into the vents to try to cover up a moldy smell.
You might try a detail shop to get rid of the smell.

Smoking with sweet smell


White smoke sweet smell. Sounds like Antifreeze evaporating..check your radiator and hoses, as well as your heater core. It is hard to fully answer a question without a hands on inspection, kind of like me asking you over the phone if you like my new tie I am wearing..

1997 blazer,heater bad smell when on


Is it a bad smell or a sweet like maple syrup smell. If its sweet you got a coolant leak probably heater core. Bad smell possible causes burning something up. I would run some water in the in the air intake below your wipers just to see if it changes. Not much but a little. Better or worse in cold tempers. Hwo about when the car first start or has run awhile does the smell get better or worse. More feed back please.

Car Heater smells strange


from he Popular Mechanics site if the smell in your car is like maple syrup:


(1) SMELLS LIKE: MAPLE SYRUP
WHEN: After the engine has warmed or possibly even after it's shut off for a few minutes.
THE CULPRIT: Coolant containing sweet-smelling (but toxic) ethylene glycol is leaking from somewhere. It could be coming from a radiator or heater hose, a failed intake manifold gasket or cylinder head. It might be coming from a leaky radiator cap or the radiator itself, especially if you smell it outside the car. A strong odor inside the passenger compartment probably means a bad heater core.
