    When we turn the heater on, you can smell Antifreeze. The vehicle is not over heating though. Engine is running normal temp.

    Coolent levels were normal. Temp gauge reads normal also. I put some radiator leak stop in last night, turned the heat on high, rolled the windows down, and started driving to get it pulled through the engin for about an hour. It started to get hot, however, this A.M. I drove it to work and there is still the horrible smell. Im feeling sick because of it. I have checked under the carpet on the passenger side, and there is no sign of leakage. There is no residue collecting on the windshield. Just the antifreeze smell. Any thoughts?

Is the blower fan for the heater going on, but only cold air? If the fan is working, but no hot air situation, 1st check the coolant level, if it's low, the coolant won't flow thru the heater core, so little or no heat. If level is ok, what does the engine temp gauge indicate? Is the engine running normal temp range, cold, hot? Let me know answers to these questions so I can help u.

    If u smell antifreeze, the heater core is leaking and needs to be replaced. The leak is not your no heat problem though. It is possible the heater core (which is like a mini version of a radiator) is plugged up w/ corrosion and rust, so there is insufficient flow thru it to provide heat.

Our 2000 Ford Expedition only puts out heat after being driven a mile or two even if it has been idling for a long period

when idiling in the winter it doesnt get hot enough until you raise rpms, that gets the motor hot enough to open thermostat so water starts circulating throughout the whole system.

What could cause me not to have any heat? i have the heat on 90 and its just air blowing out could it be the thermostat or heater coil

make sure the coolant is full,if its been a long time since the thermostat has been replaced then change it and recheck for heat.if you have the car at operating temperature then grab the heater hoses they should be the same temp.if one is hotter than the other then the heater core is plugged and will need to be replaced.

2000 expedition 5.4 lt run fine when cold when warm misses bad anyone know whats wrong??

a very common problem for the 5.4 fords is the coil packs going bad. normally misfires once heated up and under slight load ( in overdrive going up a grade) if the check engine light is on, it can help pinpoint which cylinder is misfiring. if plugs haven't been replaced within last 50-60k miles, plan on replacing plugs, and usually the coil pack that goes bad is one of the rear ones, but impossible to tell without a scan tool. if you don't own one, take it to a shop
