How do you replace the heater core in a 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan? There is a strong anti freeze smell when you turn the heater on.


Unless your vehicle is out of warranty, this is a problem that should be covered. There is no reason that a heater core should fail on a 2-year-old vehicle.

WHEN HEATER TURNED ON AND ENGINE WARM I SMELL ANTI- FREEZE CAN NOT LOCATE LEAKS


Are you able to see if it is the heater core? Located in dash on passenger side. Can often see them from bottom of the dash if you stick your head down by the floor boards.

Strong smell of anti freeze inside with windows fogged up


You need to check your heater core, these commonly leak which will let anti-freeze into the cabin and can cause you engine to overheat and cause damage to the motor. Check the carpet in the footwells for moisture.

My heater just stoped working how do i tell weather its the switch or heater core


If the heater core was a problem (got a hole in it, etc) You would smell a strong anti-freeze odor while you had your blower motor turned on (any air). Any help?

Heater immediately fogs all windows and there is a sweet odor in the cab of 2003 Buick Rendezvous, defroster works fine, but will not clear the windows after heat is put on


Sounds like a possible heater core failure(hole in it) the smell indicates to me the coolant(anti-freeze) is leaking into the passenger compartment.
Check the carpet in front of the front passenger seat for moisture, this would confirm heater core leak.
Good luck !

Probably not. Residue on the passengers side rug is likely either from a leaky heater core or a blocked air conditioner evaporator drain. Is the residue slippery feeling? Does it have a sweet anti-freeze smell? If you blot it up with a white towel, does it have a color?

If it is colored the same color as your anti-freeze (green, orange or pink, depending on what type your tahoe uses) and has a sweet smell, my bet is the heater core is leaking. This would also cause fogging on the windshield when using the front defroster and a sweet smell from the air vents when the heat is turned on.

If it just seems like water and seems to get worse when you use your air conditioning, it is likely a blocked AC evaporator drain.

In any case, neither of these problems are likely to be related to an intake manifold job.

2004 Envoy Smell like Anti-freeze when turn on the air


probably is a small seep in the heater core. does not have to be leaking enough to find any inside the car to have a strong smell in there just a small seep that makes the heater core wet will do it.
