Why does window on inside get wet mist out of vents smell antifreeze?


Very good possibility you have a heater core leaking. Have your cooling system pressure checked and find out.

Leak on a hose, and smoke, smells like antifreeze


This is usually associated with a leak in the heater core. Only proper solution is to replace the heater core. Suggest getting a service manual from local automotive parts store if you want to do it yourself. Usually lots of hidden screws that the book will give you the correct procedure to follow. Or pay someone else to do the repair. Repair manuals usually run less than $40.

I have an 08 cayenne and im smelling antifreeze...not in vents but outside motor...i see no leaks or puddles...any suggestions?


If it was a regular car I would pay someone a few bucks and put it up on a lift and look for anti-freeze stains on its belly. An oil change or muffler shop would do that, the forward motion of the car would create a track leading back to the leak point. I also would take a careful sniff at the end of the tail pipe, with the engine running and not. If you detect ANY odor of antifreeze at the tailpipe, drive directly to a dealer and get a rental to drive until they fix it

I see a misty smell like anti freeze coming through the vents in the car


Holy cow you can see smells?????


haha just messing. If you have the smell of anti freeze coming through the vents it means that the heater core needs to be replaced. The heater core cycles the hot engine coolant and uses that to warm the air to give you hot air. If you can smell it it is leaking into the vent system and needs to be replaced.

No heat , antifreez leak not visable...


A car this new should have a warranty right? the only other place for anti-freeze to go is through a blown headgasket into your oil. Pull out your oil dipstick and make sure it is not milky in color. If not check behind the engine and see if any coolant lines going into the firewall are leaking. When inside the car do you smell steaming coolant(anti-freeze) or hear gurgling? The temp gauge that stays on is the overheat indicator?
