Question about Cars & Trucks
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

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!

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.

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...
