My 2002 explorer windows keep fogging up inside and does not go away when turn on defrost & my engine light is on like my heater core may be bad but I dont smell antifreeze what else could cause t


If it was me, the first thing I'd do is go check my fluid level in my radiator. I'd add fresh anti-freeze, if I hadn't done so in a year or more. Your defrosters won't work properly if you are too low on fluids in your radiator, OR your thermostat is malfunctioning. Replacing your thermostat might be a good job for a mechanic. Good luck.

Toyota Camry 2004 Defroster fogs windows.


2 possibilities:
1 - HVAC External Drain Tube stopped up with dirt, bee nest, etc. Hard to get to w/out a car lift. Need to clear and drain HVAC box.
2 - Leaking heater core inside HVAC box. Moisture from defog will smell sweet and be hard to clean off glass. Requires Dash removal and AC service to replace Heater Core. Very time consuming and Expensive A-Freeze fumes are also lethal if inhaled.

Try Solution #1 First, Least Expensive, Non-Lethal Condition.

Mazda 323 auto gear box when engine up to running temp and been driving for about 15 mins it keeps wanting to change gear culminating in the hold light flashing...and lumpy when slowing down or speeding...


You need a full service of the auto transmission. Check the oil condition for burnt smell.
The oil may be burnt out and fails to lubricate when temperature goes up.
But most likely the gear gaskets or gear teeth are worn out.

While driving my 95 explorer i noticed the heater wasnt getting hot its luke warm and when i turn on the defroster i start to smell anti freeze and all of the windows fog up


no heat is probably low coolant or bad thermostat,although you have fog and smell ! the heating and cooling systems are closed systems the only way the windows fog is the coolant is hot and steams inside the car due to some leak inside the heater core box. as well as the smell being present. Now it is possible that a little leak has occured where the coolant supply or return line connects to the heater core and is running into the car which is running onto the core and creating steam and smell. hopefully it is a easy clamp tighten fix for you.

My car is fogging up inside and there is a smell of anit-freeze. I have not notice anything leaking underneath. Do you know what is problem could be.


Yes 100% guaranteed heater core is bad, no questions asked. heater core leaking is the only thing that will cause your vehicle to fog up on the inside, with the smell of antifreeze.

Windows in truck are fogging up


Need more info: I assume you are talking about the side windows, right?
Do they fog up when the truck just sits? Does it make a difference what the outside temp is? Does it small like anti-freeze (sweet smell) in the cab when it happens?

The first and easiest thing to check is drain tube from the air conditioning unit. Air con units are dehumidifiers and the water that they condense from the passenger compartment is supposed to drain out. If the drain gets plugged, then the water sits inside a little reservoir under the dash on the passenger side. From there it goes right back into the cabin raising the humidity and fogging the windows. The drain can be easily cleaned by blowing compressed air up the pipe.

Windows fog up,small anti-freeze smell


The early sign of a heater core leak is the smell of coolant, the reason is that only vapor is leaking now, it will gradually get worse in most cases and coolant will start comming out the heater box condensation drain.
