Question about Cars & Trucks
Try going to autozone or any auto supply that lends tools for free ask for their pressure tester and fittings for your cooling system. open hood make sure vehicle has not been running for at least 8 hours. open coolent tank and attach the tester. Pump it up to 13lbs or high test limit., check in and outside of the car. I beleve you will find your heater core is leeking or a heater hose has gone bad .I suspect it will be the heater core . if this was helpful please leave me good feed back.

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.

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.

depending on how bad, and how long the orginal core leaked, it might just be residue in heater box, and if it got up into the vents, it will take awhile for it to dry out.

Have seen this problem before. You need to look under dash at brake pedal and find a blue switch with plunger contacting pedal, disconnect connector and jump with a peice of wire and drive to see if cruise works and if it does replace deactivation switch this should get you going.
