I will take a simple guess at this
you either one have a gas leak and it is fumes is coming in through your cowl vents below the windshield near the wipers and or you have a exhaust leak and is doing the same thing fumes entering the same it increases more when your sitting still because as you drive rather then it all getting sucked into the vents it is being blown across the windshield and roof and out the back.
The hot water is may be coolant and may be leaking from the heatercore and causing windows to fog, another thing to check is to make sure the heater box drain is clear and also the rear firewall drains, if you open the hood and look to the rear where the battery is thatarea fills with water due to plugged drains at the bottom, theres a drain on each side and one under the battery but the only way to get this water hot would be if the water would enter the heater box which i kinda doubt, this sounds more like coolant. i would have the hoses checked to make sure its not a hose going to heatercore and causing the leak inside, if it is the heatercore then this is an expensive job, i just noticed the year, a 1994, this may be a heatercore leaking. have the system leak tested and the leak location will be clear. hope this helps.
Hello dedunwoodie. Your heater core is beginning to leak coolant. As the fan blows through it it is picking up the liquid and depositing it on your windshield. It will need to be replaced to solve your problem.
99% of the time it is a leaking heater core that gives you the antifreeze smell.......it will coat the inside of the windshield too possibly reducing vision under certain conditions. Clean it well after changing the heater core.
Hi, its definitely the heater core that is leaking at this point. replacing this core will fix this issue. In the mean time, you can shut of the flow of coolant by using the shut off valve near the core. this will prevent anymore water damage until you can get this issue repaired.
Hello, look on the left (driver side) front of the engine, you will see at the end of the closest to you, on the cylinder head, a pulley. This pulley runs your water pump, by a belt connection. Check and see if that belt is on.
If you are adding water, you should have it pressure tested, as it could be the water pump(which takes a special tool to replace) or a bad head gasket.
