Question about 1998 Ford Escort
If the windows fog it is the heater core. if money is an issue and your climate does not require a heater, you can remove the inlet and outlet hoses and connect them together , thereby bypassing the heater core, and be fine. It is a good temp solution until you have money to swap it out and it will get rid of that pesky antifreeze stink. good luck!!

First find exactly where the water comes from.
broken hose or hole in radiator - if no leaks here then :-
broken / loose drive belt to water pump - sign is no heat to internal heater
thermostat stuck - heats up and overheats quickly. water from exits rad cap area
also check radiator cap - should be sprung to contain water under pressure, usually these are very reliable
check oil filler cap [inside of] - should be oily and grey/black If it has a covering of what looks like soft brown aireated jelly then possibly hear gasket or other internal engine leak between water & oil ways. The excess pressure from engine will force water out of rad cap area . A compression test with variable readings for between cylinders will confirm this. Hope its not this. It's expensive
