You have a leaking heater core or a plugged condensation drain a the bottom of the air box. If it is the heater core the smell will be sweet and you should see steam.

    Ok so how do I fix it? I am dangerously mechanically inclined and cannot afford our south African mechanics. I have discovered that the Fluid is definitely from the radiator. There is a small fan thing under right front and it has a pie leading up into the body this has signs of leakage on it I suspect from the fluid that is leaking from above it . History. The fan belt for the alternator snapped and was replaced about 2 weeks ago. Also the thermostat was replaced and the radiator flushed. Ok also the smell is more of an oily smell rather than sweet. So explain in laymans terms. HOw do I fix this?

    We do not have this model in my country (USA) and so not sure how to replace the heater core. If it is like its US cousins then the dash must come out to access the heater core, THAT IS NOT A JOB FOR AN AMATURER MECHNAIC.

How to change the globe to the headlight of my Kia Pregio GS 2005 van

To replace headlight bulb of kia pregio van: You only need Phillips screw driver and 10mm socket or open wrench. Open the hood, remove front grill with 4 phillips screw. This will give you room for your hand to pull out the headlight housing later on. Next is remove the signal light housing by unscrewing the phillips screw on top of the headlight housing then pull out the signal light housing and remove the bulb. You will see 2 pcs 10mm bolts on the side which hold the headlight. Loosened and remove the bolts on headlight holder then pull the headlight sideward. Remove power supply socket before removing it completely from the van. Remove bulb socket, spring clip, and busted bulb and replace with new one. Reassemble the disassembled parts in reverse order. That's it, will take you only 10 minutes.

2005 dodge ram 2500 nasty smell coming out of airconditioner, Why?

I suspect a mouse has found its way into the airbox and died, if this is true you may be able to somehow get some bleach down into the air box from the upper right handside defrost vent you must be creative perhaps a small funnel with a length of hose connected feeding it down through defrost vent , don,t use straight bleech use 50% water /50% bleach solution and line the floor and carpet with plastic to prevent damage to the carpet, if you don't like this remedy take it to the mechanic and he will dissassemble the A/C unit for a hefty fee I am soory for the bad news hopefully it is just mold/mildew. Good luck
