02 Chrysler T&C anti freeze keeps runn out but don't see no leakn.I can tell bcause after 1 trip my heat stops blown hot air and the only way I can get heat is dumpn a full btl of anti freeze in

Hi,if you are leaking anti freez and cant see it then it must be a internal falt,maybe head gasket.
if you drive the car in this condision you could be doing more damidge in side the engine.
I wish you all the best with this problem.

No heat and coolant leak

If you are low on coolant, you have no heat ( no coolant to circulating)
Where is the leak? Replace the faulty part.

Thermostat problems

Don't go mad trying to fix it yourself - just call out the AA, RAC, GreenFlag or other reputable auto breakdown service and get them to diagnose / fix the problem. If u don't have cover just get someone who does to be there - preferably home start type. As most banks or insurance give free cover with their accounts it should not be difficult to find someone - family member, neighbour, work pal etc.

No heat , antifreez leak not visable...

A car this new should have a warranty right? the only other place for anti-freeze to go is through a blown headgasket into your oil. Pull out your oil dipstick and make sure it is not milky in color. If not check behind the engine and see if any coolant lines going into the firewall are leaking. When inside the car do you smell steaming coolant(anti-freeze) or hear gurgling? The temp gauge that stays on is the overheat indicator?

Window fogs up after driving for awile. Just

The mildew smell you refer to could be anti-freeze. When a heater core starts leaking it may allow anti-freeze (which circulates through it for heat) to be blown through the ducts onto the windshield in defrost mode. The repair is to have the heater core replaced. It may wait for the thermostat to open and allow the coolant to circulate before you notice it. Occasionally the carpet on the passenger side may be wet from leakage.

I have a 2000 ford windstar no heat still

My 99 windstar did this too. It was the blend door that the actuator motor goes into was broke. When you pull the actuator out look into the hole and see if you see a d shape piece coming out of the box if it is not d shape it is broke check out this site great photos
