Antifreeze/water mix leaking in defroster/ "heater coil, fog may vapor from that, or reduced heat on window. it's a job for radiator pro. Once I tried radiator leak sealant which clogged my water pump and put more holes in the system. Another car another time responded well to the treatment but only briefly delayed the inevitable repair

SOURCE: Antifreeze leaking inside the car

Service engine soon is an engine code not likely related to the leaking heater core. I can almost guarantee your heater core has developed a leak. Bars Leak is recommended from the factory for Jaguars, and might accidentally stop the leak, The only other solution is heater coild replacement, The coil is not expensive, but the labot to install it is. The light indicates a malfunction in engine controls and emissions. Any auto parts store will be glad to run the codes for you, with the codes I can help yuo find a solution to the light issue also. ! Good Luck and I hope this helps!

SOURCE: wet under driver's side floor mat

Is there a sweet smell inside the car?Heater core leak I beleive would be on passenger side floor.Antifreeze will be sweet to the nose.Are you getting any white smoke out the tailpipe? would likely be head gasket leak.Put a piece of cardboard under the car near the radiator and under the motor to see where its leaking from .One thing Ive learned over the years is that its going somewhere.On the ground? Or out the tailpipe.
As for the floor board leak the 98 s were prone to have the defrost area in front of windshield collect water from being plugged up .Mine was passenger floorboard.Daughter resealed small oval vent (that defrosts /heats hood?) LOL .Its on pass. side under hood on cowl .I think this will take care of my problem but you may need to investigate under the dash/defrost area and drill and then install a drain line to bottom of defroster.Exit drain line to O/Side of car...lol .Also was it raining ? was car outside in rain .if so it could be this issue.Sorry so long ,hope you can make heads or tails of this.

SOURCE: 2005 chrysler sebring sedan water on inside of car

There is a rubber hose sticking out of the firewall on the lower passenger side, under the hood. With the A/C running you should see water dripping out of it, or if you let the car run for a few minutes notice a puddle on the ground. If you don't see water, the hose is probably plugged. Sometimes squeezing it a few times will work the crud inside it loose and water should start coming out. Same deal for the back. You'll have to crawl under the vehicle and look where the A/C lines go into the vehicle(it will be on the left or right side in the rear). There should be another rubber drain hose there. Hope this helps...

2008 Hyundai santa fe windows fogging up on the inside could it be an antifreeze problem? Never happened before


Leaking heater core, maybe . Do you smell anti-freeze inside the vehicle ? All of the windows or mainly the front windshield ?

Turn off heater blows hot air


the windows are fogging up from the water vapour inside the car hitting the glass and freezing. All the heater is doing is making the water vapour evaporate into smaller particles and freezing quicker. The way to overcome this is to dehumidify the air in the car (take the water vapour out). To do this use the AC as this is what it is designed to do . run the heater at the same time and the glass will clear and stay clear. In most cars this is called climate controlled air conditioning.

Water leak drivers side


If it happens when you run the A/C It could be that your A/C drain is clogged and draining to the inside of the car. If it happens while running the heat your heater core could be leaking, but that's usually on the passenger's side and you could smell the antifreeze inside the car, unless you have water in the radiator instead. Other than that inspect your door and windshield seals.

1988 oldsmobile cutlass cieara not overheating but windows inside continuously fogging over any answers...oil changes good everything runs good fan is kicking on appropriately car is driven by 75 yr old...


Fogging of the windows inside is usually caused by a heater core leaking.
That is located under the dashboard on the passenger side. If you have an odor of anti-freeze or the floor is a little wet on that side, that's a sure sign of it leaking. Have someone check for that.

I am loosing antifreeze collant about a cup a day. I am brown gook in my radiator and the reservor. I smell antifreeze and for a couple of days my windsheild would fog up. I have not seen any antifreeze...


Usually when you have these symptoms, the first thing you should look for is coolant in the passenger side floorboard. Just run your hands over the carpet and feel for dampness. if you have floor mats, ne sure to check under the floor mat. If it is damp you are most likely going to have a leaking heater core or heater core hose

My ford truck smells of antifreeze?


You have a bad heater hose and it's being pulled in the cab, if your ucky. Otherwise you will have to pull out the heater core and replace it. A new one runs about $75.00 and can be bought at any auto parts store if you wan to try this on your own post here and I will give you the proceedure.

Passenger side floor board is wet.


Hi Big,

Heater core is on the passenger side under the dash.

Are your coolant levels low?

Start your engine and set the heater on high. This allows circulation through the core. Now check for leaks. Place a paper towel or two on the floor. This will allow you to see the color of whatever is leaking. (e.g. antifreeze)

Fogging will only occur when there is a temperature differential of more than one or two degrees between the inside and outside of the vehicle.

Best regards,
Mike

Heater works but defrost fills inside with fog.


your heater core has probably sprung a leak.does the fog smell kinda sweet?....check the floor in the front where the floor mats are for moisture or even puddles of antifreeze.(the replacement of a heater core can be very expensive as the entire dash usually needs to be removed to access the heater core)also look under the engine near the firewall for antifreeze drips.

01 gmc truck 1500 2wd oder of antifreeze inside cab


the small radiator just inside the cab, where the hoses go to the heater is leaking. You may try using stop leak (many don't recommend this) or take off the heater radiator. it will probably get worse when you turn on the heater and fog up the windshield if not fixed. hope this helps.
