You should check your blend door, go to the center of your dash look down towards the floor right at the bottom on the hump (tunnel area) you will see a black or same as interior color, cover it has small slits cut in it, it is held in by two expanding type plastic bolts, they do not unscrew, just pull them out, one on each side. Once removed locate the white small box with a wiring harness connected to it, a little to the right hand side. This is the stepping motor that controls the blend door. Remove the stepping motor, and reconnect the harness, look at the motor drive unit and operate the heater control knob, does the motor turn, if it does then use a mirror and look at the drive end of the blend door itself, it is probably broken. If the door is broken, this repair just got difficult, the entire dash will have to be removed to access the environmental station, once accessed there are about 10 screws that hold the top cover on the enviromental station, undo these screws and remove the top cover, then you can remove and replace the blend door. If you are not comfortable with this difficultly level in repair I suggest you seek out your favorite local shop. removing the dash is not easy, there are alot of screws, some in very difficult places to reach. Testing the motor is easy. I hope this helps, let me know.

If you smell antifreeze it may be 3 possibilities: 1. you may have a leaking hose/hose connector , or water pump. 2. your heater core is bad and needs replaced. Unless you know what you are doing I would highly suggest taking to dealer for heater core replacement. The dash and steering colum has to be removed to get to the heater core. This is not an easy job believe me (about-900-1200 job). If you have your heater core replaced then also replace the climate control door. This is good preventative maintenance and also a a dollar saver. I would have a pressure check run on your radiator as a first thought. All you may have is a bad hose and that can easily be replaced.
