I would first check the cabin air filter and possible it can be really dirty plus when pulled out make sure to vaccuum the dirt from blower motor 9 of 10 times thats the problem

No heat 1996 chysler town and country. When I turn on blower water comes from passenger side under dash.

This usually indicates that the heater core( a thing that looks and acts like a little radiator) has devoloped a leak. Coolant is circulated through thee heater core(located in that area) when you turn on the heater. The core gets hot and a fan blows airthrough it and out into the cabin. A cracked or corroded core will allow coolant to escape into the heater housing and the fan will force it into the cabin. Hope this helps. Dano

My 92 for taurus wagon is blowing cold air instead of hot air, what could be the problem?

Behind the tempearture switch is an arm that is telescopic and raises and lowers the temperature. If this arm is either broken off or loose, it can create an inability to change the temperature. It can also be a problem with the heating unit in the ac in the car.

I have a 95 bmw740il 8cly. every time i turn the heat on i always get a mist coming out of the air vents,also a smell of antifreeze is my heater core gone bad or do i have a leak ?

hi sounds like you have a leaking heater core if you can smell antifreeze that sickly sweet smell is a give away its also worth checking your cabin filters arent blocked with leaves or debris ,if its not blocked cabin filters and you cant afford to replace the heater core a good fix is to use a cooling system sealer like "k" seal which is often seen as a temporary repair but quite honestly does a good job of fixing small leaks good luck

When i drive the car the engines smells like something is burning and runs hot

Ok, check the thermostat, and it is easy to replace. Subarus have small radiators, could be clogged. Are your electric fans coming on? Are you losing water? Also may be a bad head gasket or cracked head. Of course, check all the hoses, including the heater hoses. The smell could also be oil leaking onto the exhaust pipe. Subarus are famous for this. But that will smell like oil, not antifreeze. Mainly, check to see if you are losing water. Also, there is a bleeder outlet on top of the radiator on the opposite side of the cap. usually the left side, if you add fluid to the radiator, do it very slowly and take off that bleeder, phillips head screw, until coolant comes out of the bleeder, then you know there is no air in the cooling system, If there is the subarus will overheat quickly, especially under a load.

Either its the heater core or the thermostat

your heater core is definitley leaking and your blower is pushing the vapor into the cabin. It will only get worse. You can minimize the smell by not running your heater or defroster, but you wont prevent the coolant from leaking and potentially getting worse. Sorry to say, the core will need pulled and repaired or replaced. Sometimes stop leak additives will solve the problem if its not too severe. I have never been a fan of them, its only a band aid in my view. also if u got pets afoid leeting they smell the antifreeze very toxic can kill pets easily. hope this helps. rate above 4* cheers
