If you can smell the odor, most likely it is your heater core leaking. check to see if the carpet where you put your feet while driving (close to pedals and under dash) is wet. If so get your heater core repaired or replaced.

Overheated due to a heater hose leak all hoses were replaced but now have white smoke coming from tail pipe that smells of antifreeze


White smoke is burning antifreeze. You have more than likely blown a head gasket which is allowing coolant into the combustion chamber where is is being mixed with fuel and burnt.

No heat smell burning antifreeze in exhuast


if you are smelling anti-freeze in the exhaust system and have no heat then you probably have a head gasket that is bad leaking anti-freeze into the combustion chamber and being burnt.the head gasket will need replacing.if the motor hasn`t gotten overly hot then the cylinder head is probably okay.

if you smell anti freeze you have a leak. an overheating condition is caused by a bad thermostat, a bad water pump, clogged coolant system or air trapped in the line. have the coolant system pressure checked to locate the leak. it is probably very small that's boiling away before you have a chance to see it. and this is why the system appears full.

I have a 1991 deville, and it just started overheating about 1 month ago. I put anti freeze in it and when its driven alot or long miles, then it runs hot and the antifreeze is gone.


If the engine fan works and you get good heat from the heater then you could have a bad head gasket. First make sure you dont have a leak somewhere and the car is overheating from low coolant level.

I get a smell of antifreeze when I put the outside


Firsdt check the radiator cap thats it tight , then check for any anti freeze visible on the engine, then check under the car for any leaks. Is the smell of anti freeze inside the car ? , check the heater core you may have a leak there. the newer heater cores are aluminum and certain anti freezes, are extra acidic , which causes the anti freeze to eat at the heater core causing leaks, it maybe be a pin hole leak in the heater core ,causing the smell.
