SOURCE: Burning smell when ac is turn on

well as for the ford man sorry to here that. I am a holden man myself, but it is most likly that your fan switch is on its way out if you have a test light just pop the switch out and see if you have power to your high setting if not replace your switch. And for mgauthier I would suggest you just reroute your overflow pipe so it overflows onto the ground not onto hot metal parts. But you shouldn't have coolant coming out your overflow all the time. As for burning smell it was probably the switch burning out and failing.

the small radiator just inside the cab, where the hoses go to the heater is leaking. You may try using stop leak (many don't recommend this) or take off the heater radiator. it will probably get worse when you turn on the heater and fog up the windshield if not fixed. hope this helps.

SOURCE: Bad smell coming from heater/ smoke coming out vents

I had the same problem in my 98 Dodge Dakota! Replaced the heater core, problem solved. No more funky coolant smell and erie fog coming through my vents. I bought the heater core at rockauto.com online. Have purchased many items now from them. All factory parts so far at half the price of even AutoZone, even with the shipping. Also, you usually have to wait only a couple of days depending on the part and they have EVERYTHING.

This is definitely a heater core issue, but I might also suggest one of the many over the counter cures first before replacing it, the heater core is not a very expensive part but quite a chore to replace.

SOURCE: location of block heater cable on 05 F350 diesel

The block heater is already installed in your 6.0. The cord may not be there as it is an option in some states and standard equipment in others. The best way to see if your cord is there is to crawl under and look up by the # 4 cyl and you will either see 2 prongs sticking out for the cord or you will see the cord. The cord should end in the front bumper behind where the front tag would be. If you dont have the cord Id suggest getting it off ebay as it should be cheaper than the dealer. Hope this helps.

Sounds like an exhaust leak either at manifold or collector pipe. Exhaust is being sucked in through fresh air intake for hvac system. Must scan to determine what code is setting check engine light.

Not familiar with Saab at all, but on every other car made, if you smell coolant inside the car and a fog covers the windows, the heater core needs to be replaced. Depending on the design of the heater box that contains your blower motor and heater core, leaking coolant may be destroying your blower motor, and causing the noises and metal smell.

You will need to replace the heater core. It obviously has a small crack or hole in it and that is where the steam on your windsheild and the smell of antifreeze is coming from.

Smoke coming through vents temp. gauge going up acting like its going 2 overheat turn heater on hot and smokes bad turn to cool and smokes a little my husband thinks it's the thermostat and wants to...


If the heater core is leaking, you would get a lot of steam that would smell "sweet". That would also leave you low on coolant, which could be a source of your overheating. If it's more of an electrical smell, you may have a blower motor or a blower motor resistor going bad, but won't cause the engine to overheat.

Ford f-150 that has smoke coming inside the vents when you drive it.what would cause this? 4.5 v-8


You trucks heater core is leaking inside the dash heating vents, the air blower motor blows through the heater core and then you smell the leaking coolant in the form of a sickly sweet vapor. You will need to replace the header core, this is a fairly big job and in most cases best left to a professional.

When I turn the heater on burnt plastic smell from vents


It could be your heater blower motor or the blower speed regulating reisitor.
Try different blower speeds, see if the smell goes away. Also if one or more speed setting don't work, it is more than likely it is the resistor, if no to the tests, it is more likely to be the blower motor.
Also check to see if the blower intake is blocked.

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 !

You have a coolant leak most likely in the heater core. Try disconnecting your heater hoses and coupling them together, then running the engine to see if the leak goes away. If it does, I would have the heater core replaced.
