I have a 1993 Eagle Vision and the only thing wrong with this car is in the winter time I turn the heat on and the windows fog up except in the little space where the heat is hitting. It wont spread to the rest of the window. Is this a problem with the heater core or just the car? Please help.

try running the ac as well as the heater. The ac removes the humidity (water vapour) in the air in the car which is causing the fogging up . Hot moist air on glass creates fog ( same as clouds). You will get a comfortable temperature inside without the fog
heating core has been plumbed in wrong or most likely has a leak in the system, as you are smelling the antifreeze - seems to me like the antifreeze is not reaching the core, have you mistakenly plumbed the intake/out take the wrong way round?, this would cause the windows to fog up as the heat is being taken away fro the core rather than being taken into the heater core
IN COLD WEATHER USE BI LEVEL AND TURN ON HEAT ON AC AND HEATER MODE SWITCH AND HEAT MODE THAT WILL KEEP WINDOWS FROM FOGGING UP KEEP CAR WARM ON THE INSIDE WHEN COLD OUT SIDE ALWAY CARRY PAPER TOWER OR SOME THING TO WIPE WINDOWS WHEN FOG UP MOST TIME I HAVE PROBLEM WINDOWS FOGGING UP WHEN YOU HAVE COLD RAIN OUT SIDE.IF WINDOWS FOG REALLY BAD I HAVE TO TURN MODE SWITCH TO COLD MODE AND TURN ON DEFOGGER.
If your smelling coolant in cab, and window fogging up, check fog if green heater core is going. Over heating could be a couple of things, plugged radiator, water pump, thermostat. To check for water pump Find the top hose, run car check for leaks on ground. While warm or hot wear glove oven mitt or something that you can feel through but will protect from heat, If you feel flow of coolant more the just a trickle its a good thing to replace thermostat. Also check for bubbles in the coolant tank, if there are bubbles your S.O.L. the head gasket is blown
The early sign of a heater core leak is the smell of coolant, the reason is that only vapor is leaking now, it will gradually get worse in most cases and coolant will start comming out the heater box condensation drain.
