SOURCE: heater matrix leaking

You'll probably have to remove the old leaking heater core from under the dash.A chiltons or haynes shop manual would be very helpful in telling you the actual step by step proceedure for removing the old core and installing the new one.I've replaced several heater "cores' and it involves a good bit of body contortion to get you head under the dash to see what your dealing with,but I,m confident that you can get the job done.Don't skip any steps here cause that way leads to frustration.Be sure to have a small bucket or tuperware container handy to catch any excess antifreeze before it soaks you carpet.

SOURCE: I hear a "swooshing" sound underneath the dashboard.coolant smell

You have an air leak in your coolant pipes under the dash.
There is air in the system.
When the engine is off the coolant is dripping onto the carpet.

SOURCE: new thermostat,waterpump,coolant,block flushed rad

take the thermostat out and heat it up in a pan of water to see if it will open when it gets hot.
you should see it open when it gets hot.use a cooking thermometer to watch the temp. it should open between 180 and 225 deg.

WHEN HEATER TURNED ON AND ENGINE WARM I SMELL ANTI- FREEZE CAN NOT LOCATE LEAKS


Are you able to see if it is the heater core? Located in dash on passenger side. Can often see them from bottom of the dash if you stick your head down by the floor boards.

Churping fan noise inside car behind the middle heater/air vent and a smell of burning oil or anti-freeze coats me and my clothes while inside car Help Help.


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.

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.

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 !

Over heating engine. water on floor in cabin. windscreen fogs up after short runs. loss of coolant. strong smell of coolant/rust in cabin. water seems to be entering thru heating ducts.


Soundls like (REALLY LIKE) a broken heater matrix. You can bypass the matrix by pulling the water pipes from either side and joining them with a piece of copper pipe to stop the leak and make the car useable for the time being. You will have to get a new matrix and fit it or have it fitted if you want a heater tho...
Don't let the engine overheat - you'll turn a slightly pricey job into an enormously expensive and time-consuming job if you let it overheat too much.

Heater blows cold, temp gauge rises 1997 Camaro Z28, 50,000 miles...Florida, freezing in NJ Car just started blowing cold air today...always smeeled anitfreeze...always has water level light on as long as...


heater core is probably what was changed,..a little radiator under the dash that the hot water runs through and a fan behind it to blow at it thus giving you heat,...pretty much thats it in a nutshell,...sounds like something still leaking under there, (anti-freeze smell),... fill it back up with anti-freeze (non-toxic type so you don't polute) and drive to where you gotta go,....go to your mechanic to find that leak,.good luck, and do a hole shot for me! thanks, cracklin joe

Coolant smell inside cab when you turn on car/heat


Likely you are in the beginning stage of a heater core leak. at this point, you may be able to temporarily solve the problem by using a good system sealer (I'm partial to the kind that comes as a silver powder) Since we don't actually know the condition of the core, temporary may mean a week or several years, but replacement is expensive and time consuming so I'd definitely give it a try.

I get a smell of antifreeze when I put the outside


Firsdt check the radiator cap thats it tight , then check for any anti freeze visible on the engine, then check under the car for any leaks. Is the smell of anti freeze inside the car ? , check the heater core you may have a leak there. the newer heater cores are aluminum and certain anti freezes, are extra acidic , which causes the anti freeze to eat at the heater core causing leaks, it maybe be a pin hole leak in the heater core ,causing the smell.

2004 Envoy Smell like Anti-freeze when turn on the air


probably is a small seep in the heater core. does not have to be leaking enough to find any inside the car to have a strong smell in there just a small seep that makes the heater core wet will do it.

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.
