Yeah, and it probably smells like evaporating anti-freeze. Turn off the heater to avoid the smell. Good Luck.

Can i drive my 2010 jeep liberty with a leaking heater core?


The heater uses the coolant (read antifreeze and water) from the engine to get hot. If it runs low enough, by say leaking out of the heater core, your engine will overheat and that can be bad for it and expensive to fix.
Although most antifreeze is poisonous, (don't drink it) if you keep your window open the fumes will not hurt you. That being said, it will stain the carpet, make the inside of the car smelly, leave a puddle on the floor, cause the floor boards to rust(slowly) and mainly be annoying.
Since we are starting into summer you can get by for awhile by just adding water to the coolant tank under the hood. Make sure you do this when the engine is not hot. Engine coolant can give you severe burns if you take the cap off when the engine is hot.
So, about an hour after you get home from work go and check the engine coolant level. If you can hold onto the radiator hose then it is cool enough to add some more water. If you add more water then leaks out you can drive the jeep.
FYI The leak will get worse over time.

Engine concern


Smoke (blue or black) or steam (white)? White smoke is really steam that is caused by water leaking onto hot surface. Could be leaking from hose running to heater coil under dash, or something else. Check radiator water level to make sure water level is ok. Blue smoke is oil burning. This could be dangerous, caused by similar scenario of oil leaking on a hot surface (from a gasket leak, etc), or exhaust fumes. Black smoke means something is actually burning and could indicate fire. Black or blue some could fill vehicle cabin with toxic fumes, even if you don't smell anything bad.

It could be a bad accelerator pump inside the carburetor. The carb would need a rebuild kit.

Fuel smell inside car when using heater especially on a cold day or when stopping the car


This is a somewhat common problem on Nissan products.
The V6 engine has several small rubber hoses connecting the fuel lines, and when it is cold weather the hoses leak fuel.
The heater - defroster picks up the fumes from the outside vent under the windshield. When you are moving the fumes flow under the van.
If you can find the leak sometimes you can just tighten up a clamp or two.

Fumes inside 1998 subaru forester


I had a 2000 with leaking fuel lines. There are a few molded rubber lines. Check the condition of the rubber and the hose clamps. If they are wet, you have a leak. When replacing use the good clamps that you can tighten with a nut driver

Fumes escaping from ac vents inside vehicle while driving and leaves a film residue on inside of windshield whenever the heat or defrost are used.


Hello dedunwoodie.
Your heater core is beginning to leak coolant.
As the fan blows through it it is picking up the liquid and depositing it on your windshield.
It will need to be replaced to solve your problem.

Radiator coolant fumes inside cabin


There is a chance you may have an engine bay coolant leak and the fumes are being drawn in through the heater ductwork so verify that first.
But....
Coolant fumes inside usually come from a leaking heater core. The heater core is like a small radiator inside your vehicle that gives off heat.
Problems like this arise from coolant that has not been flushed and creates an electrolysis that eats away at the material causing a leak.
This is not a job for a do it yourself guy(or girl). A pro could easily spend 5 to 7 hours changing this one.
Make sure whoever does this repair flushes the system.

1994 Cutlass Ciera Runs Hot


If coolant can be detected inside the car, you need to replace the heater core. After it's replaced, the low coolant light should not come on after the heater core is replaced, and the system refilled. If it does, you need to check further. Go w/ the heater core for now, as it will fog up the inside of the car, and become a safety issue.
