If you don't see any antifreeze leaking in the engine compartment (especially around the radiator) you could have a leaking heater core. Does the smell go away if you turn off your heater for a while? If so, that's likely where your leak is.

White SWEET smelling smoke, or white OILY smelling smoke? If it's white thick SWEET smelling smoke, you have a blown head gasket - that's the smell of antifreeze burning in the engine, which it should NEVER do. If it's white OILY smelling smoke (smells a lot like diesel), then you're getting too much fuel into the cylinders.

If it's sweet-smelling smoke (antifreeze), pull the oil dipstick & check the oil level. If the oil level is HIGH and the oil looks like a mocha milkshake, that's absolutely conclusive - that's what happens when antifreeze gets into your oil, and it's nasty corrosive to engine parts.

I'm not at all surprised that the oil light is on if it won't start - you won't get much oil pressure until the engine is running.

Water leaking on ground when I crank my e-320 2003


Condensation from your a/c can be found dripping off of a car. Make certain it is water and not coolant/antifreeze. If it has a sweet smell (coolant/antifreeze) then you may have a leak.

My 2001 town and country limited is overheating without indication from the gages and has a burnt smell coming through the inside vents of the van.


  • This I understand, a burnt smell coming through your vents, but how do you know it is the engine overheating? You said you have no gauge warning. Is your antifreeze disappearing? In other words are you having to refill the antifreeze? Is the van stopping and steaming? Stalling? The reason I ask is if you are not loosing antifreeze something else could be going on. Antifreeze does not smell "burnt." Antifreeze smells sweet like cinnamon. Give me some more details like what going on other than the smell and how is this effecting the driving of the car?


  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

There is white smoke coming out the tailpipe no smell of antifreeze


If it doesn't smell like sweet then you most likely got a bad tank of gas. Just to be safe keep an eye on your engine temp. and coolant levels.

I have 2008 uplander ls the problem is a flim gets on the inside of winshield. very light but anoying


Is the heater core slowly leaking antifreeze? Do you smell any sweet smelling antifreeze smell associated with a leak?

Or, do you drive through a lot of construction zones that blow contaminated air onto the windshield?

Sweet smell inside car and moisture on inside of windshield


This is probably a leaking heater core, which will need to be replaced. The sweet smell is the coolant (antifreeze).
