Question about 2005 Dodge Ram 1500
Hi Mary, I'm glad to help! Mary, this is a common problem that occurs after flushing the coolant system. The heater core was corroded and the cleaner removed the rust from it and now its leaking and that why you smell coolant with the heater on. Unfortunately the complete dash will have to be removed to fix this problem. CAUTION: Do not put STOP-LEAK in the system, this only causes engine overheating problem. Instead, if you don't have the money to repair it right now, then you can have someone BY-PASS the heater core under the hood. This will give you time to save up for the proper repair. CAUTION: Do Not continue to drive it with that way because you are losing coolant everytime you drive the vehicle and will cause overheating and damage to your engine and that will be really costly. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Mary. To bad you don't live in the St Louis Mo area.
