Sounds like a leaking header core. In order to replace the entire dash will need to be removed. The a/c system will then need to be evacuated. You will then be able to remove the entire HVAC unit from the car and replace the heater core. This is a huge job! Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

Windshield on the pasangers side of my 2004 freeestar is foging u and i smell antifreeze


Are you sure it is antifreeze you smell? Is it a burnt smell or a sweet smell.
Could be the difference between radiator problems and that of a water
pump? Is vehicle running hot?

Heater immediately fogs all windows and there is a sweet odor in the cab of 2003 Buick Rendezvous, defroster works fine, but will not clear the windows after heat is put on


Sounds like a possible heater core failure(hole in it) the smell indicates to me the coolant(anti-freeze) is leaking into the passenger compartment.
Check the carpet in front of the front passenger seat for moisture, this would confirm heater core leak.
Good luck !

My car is low on antifreeze but i cant find where it is leaking I had a relay switch put on ago and it ran fine until this morning and i smelled antifreeze


If you smelled antifreeze, then It just might be the heater core. Check around the floor on the passenger side to see if it is wet. Or, when you start up, do you see any fog like vapour coming out the defrost vent, with any residue on the inside of the windshield. If not this, then put a pressure tester on the rad at 15 lbs. That should show.

I smell anti-freeze and when i get in the truck the windshield fogs.


Sticky film on inside of windshield and smell of antifreeze is a sign of heater core leak. Make sure hose connections at firewall are not the culprit before you take more drastic measures.

Heater works but defrost fills inside with fog.


your heater core has probably sprung a leak.does the fog smell kinda sweet?....check the floor in the front where the floor mats are for moisture or even puddles of antifreeze.(the replacement of a heater core can be very expensive as the entire dash usually needs to be removed to access the heater core)also look under the engine near the firewall for antifreeze drips.

01 gmc truck 1500 2wd oder of antifreeze inside cab


the small radiator just inside the cab, where the hoses go to the heater is leaking. You may try using stop leak (many don't recommend this) or take off the heater radiator. it will probably get worse when you turn on the heater and fog up the windshield if not fixed. hope this helps.
