Steam from vents and coolant leaking indicated a bad heater core, you will smell the coolant if this is the case.

SOURCE: fishy, steam odor coming from AC vents

Forget the radiator tank. Your AC 'Condensate drain' hose is plugged up. This is a common problem. If you know where the hose comes out under the car you can ( carefully ) push a wire up it. If you're lucky it's plugged near the end by a mud-dauber wasp. If not, take it to your dealer and see if you can persuade the write-up guy to show you where the drain outlet is as a gesture of good faith. If they insist on charging you money, consider that when you buy your next car...

If you notice a 'sweet' smell, or windows tend to fog up, it's your cars heater core leaking. The heater core is located under the dash, passenger side, it's like a mini radiator. The cars cooling system directs hot coolant to it so you can have heat. To change it is an involved procedure.
If there is no evidence of the anti-freeze smell or windows fogging up, and u have been using your air conditioner, it would be a blockage in the drain tube from the a/c. The end of the tube is located under the car on the passenger side , behind the front wheel. The blockage needs to be removed, and will solve the problem. Let me know what u find Curt

SOURCE: steam coming out of vents and water runnind down inside of dash

Your heater core has corroded through. You need a new heater core. You may be able to get by temporarily, with bypassing the heater core hoses, located in the engine compartment. These hoses carry coolant heated from the engine, to the heater core. You remove the hoses from the core, and put a pipe in the middle, connecting the two hoses together using hose clamps.

Should there be a cool morning, or if you need the defroster, you won't have warm air. Just a temporary fix.

The rear end of my Lincoln Navigator will not raise.


could just be a seal on the air line itself, or possibly a whole in the line or one of th eleveling air bags. gong thru the water should'nt have any effect on it,unfortunately these are just like any other part, or seal they just eventually wear out.

I have a 2001 Lincoln Town Car . When it rains, there is water in the passenger


The vent under the hood on passenger side , more than likley the seal is leaking letting the water go inside. I have had to fix my mother's 1999 and my 2001 lincoln. It is not very hard to fix. You will have to remove the screws on the passenger panel under the hood to get to the vent. Pry the vent loose and re seal. You can take the hose and spray water on the W/S when it is dry to make sure it is coming in at that location.

I am not 100% sure as far as on a 98 navigator, but I had a 99 Ford Explorer which is pretty close. My relay was under the hood in a box located near the firewall in front of the drivers side. Other cars I've had, have had them under the dash on the drivers side. You have to get on your back and lool up in the wires for a round lookin relay or it may be square. Either way, those are the only two places I have ever known them to be on any car. A flashlight will help greatly. Hope this helps some.
