Coolant system

Then the heater core itself must be leaking. This core is like a radiator and can be removed and repaired or replaced.

If your car goes into defrost position but will not remove the moisture from your windshield, then your heater core is leaking coolent, and you might be starting to smell a strange sweet smell or have some damp front carpet. the core is leaking and the coolent is evaperating only to condanse back onto the glass. Hard job for the novice.

Heator core fix new radiator hoses still overheats what can it be

Thermostat or cooling fan if you have no leaks. Tauruses are notorious for getting clogged up with rust and other deposits in the cores and radiators. There is also always the chance the head gasket went out. Fingers crossed that that isn't the case.

There is a water leak somewhere in my 98 toyota camry that leaks into my passenger side floor. There is no sun roof and no visible leaks from the windows or doors. Any thoughts? A/C leak maybe? I hope...

sounds like it may be a heater core check your radiator fluid to see if its full and see if the water inside is water or antifreeze if it is antifreeze its a heater core.

Coolent light and check engine light

Your thermostat will not affect the heat in your car. This is controlled by the heater core which is pulled from coolant from the engine where the coolant will be the hottest. Your thermostat opens and allows the coolant from the engine to circulate into the radiator and the coolant from the radiator flow into the engine. A thermostat is cheap and easy to replace. The sensor should be a fairly inexpensive and easy replacement as well. I would change out the sensor first because bad thermostat would create an overheating problem.

Leaking heater core coolent smell through the a/c

The same thing happened to my '99. I found an 'off' brand heater core locally then seached the internet to find direction on how to install. I don't remember the link, but someone had posted pictures of the step by step. Although I must say the sticking point for me was removing the screw holding the heater core to the pipes coming from the front of the car then removing the core holder.
It took me a couple of hours, not really knowing what I was doing, but went real smooth. It's fixed for around $140! And NO MORE ANTIFREEZE SMELL!!
