If you're going through 1/2 gallon every few weeks - you've got a leak. Since you smell it from the heater vents - it may very well be the heater core ($$$) that is leaking. Usually, you'll notice that the windows will fog up heavily as the coolant is very hot / steamy once the engine has warmed up fully.

Look for coolant puddles under the truck to get an idea as to where it is leaking from. If closer to the front bumper - it's probably not the heater core - if closer to the firewall - it could be the heater core.

Im trying to replace my coolant and I'm not sure how much to put in. It's the 4.3 L v6 in a 1988 GMC c1500


Don't know the exact amount but around 2-2 and a half gallon. Do this use one gallon straight antifreeze and one gallon water run engine for a few minutes then turn off. Check level and top off radiator. Add appropriate level to side tank

I have a 07 silverado with 39000 miles and i get a burnt fluid smell out of the heat vent after i drive it for a while and come to a stop nothing is leaking on the ground and runs fine


You might not see leaks if the fluid is leaking on the engine where it gets burnt off before dropping to the ground. That happened to me. Check all of the fluid levels. Engine oil, transmission oil, power steering oil and the antifreeze. Check when warm not hot, not cold. Pay special attention to the level and check once each day until you detect which is leaking.

Smelling antifreeze coming from a/c vents


this is a sign of a broken or punctured heater radiator which is located in the car cabinet that causes coolant to leak. you should also have noticed that the coolant level becomes low. you can either replace it or have it disconnected by removing the hoses that feed it with hot coolant, then you will have no heater inside the car cabinet.

I changed the heating core but now my windows are fogging up when i turn on my heat and i also smell antifreeze coming thru the vents what seems to be my problem???


heating core has been plumbed in wrong or most likely has a leak in the system, as you are smelling the antifreeze - seems to me like the antifreeze is not reaching the core, have you mistakenly plumbed the intake/out take the wrong way round?, this would cause the windows to fog up as the heat is being taken away fro the core rather than being taken into the heater core

2001 Chevy Silverado 1500 Z-71. Coolant loss with no noticeable puddles or wet connections.


First- When was the last time you checked it & it was full?
Second- Is a lot missing (1/2 gallon)?
Third- check the oil dipstick for any antifreeze in there or any white smoke from the exhaust,that would indicate a possible head gasket leak.
Fourth- Do you smell antifreeze inside the truck? Look for a small leak under the glove box in the dashboard for the heater core.
Hope this helps

I am flushing my radiator today, and need to know how much anti freeze my car should need. it is a 2003 Dodge neon SE.


It will need as much as it takes, which is impossible to tell depending on how you flushed it.
But your whole system takes more than 2 gallons, and since you want a 50/50 mix you know you will need more than one gallon of antifreeze. So you need to start by purchasing 2 gallons. If you have left over, it does not go bad. And if you do not quite have enough, you can probably add a little extra water because you probably did not flush all the antifreeze out.
Once you run it, then next time it will need more again after the heat bleeds the air out.
