I think you either have a leaking heater core or one of the hoses is bad at the heater core end. In either event it needs immediate attention.

No leak and 2003 nissan xterra smell like anti freeze check radiator,water pump.hoses.heater core.anti freeze level in radiator is perfect


If you can smell,then you have a leak,if the heater core has a pin hole,then the box that houses it will hold the antifreeze to wear you won't see any,have to take the box apart and see,check your hoses going thru the firewall to see if there leaking.

SMOKE IS COMING FROM MY CROWN VIC VENTS THEN I SMELL A SWEET SMELL


the smoke is probably coolant steam and the sweet smell is the unique aroma of engine coolant (anti-freeze). check the carpets, they may be wet with coolant. most likely a heater core failure.

Tcs and check engine lights came on while driving, then cruise control and smell of anti-freeze or oil comes thru when heater/air blowing on


Go to an auto parts store to get the code(s) read for free from the OBD. That will likely explain the Check Engine light (emissions related).

Also sounds like the screws weren't torqued enough (or Loc-tite not applied) by your repair mechanic.

Recall that radiator water (and anti-freeze) is what circulates in the heater core. Hopefully it is just a leaky core and turning off the heat (or shutting of that water circuit) will eliminate the smell.

Are you losing radiator water? That would be a tip-off.

Have you checked for water in the engine oil? Bad news if that's the problem.

There is smoke come in from the heat vents


Are you sure it's smoke? Usualy this is steam from a ruptured heater core. If so you are loosing coolant into the heater ducting and it will eventually overheat. If it is steam from a bad heater core it will smell like anti-freeze.

Antifreeze steam comeing through vents


Your heater core has a leak, it's like a small radiator that heats up and the blower motor blows air thru it to create heat in the car. It is leaking anti freeze into the heater box.

No heat , antifreez leak not visable...


A car this new should have a warranty right? the only other place for anti-freeze to go is through a blown headgasket into your oil. Pull out your oil dipstick and make sure it is not milky in color. If not check behind the engine and see if any coolant lines going into the firewall are leaking. When inside the car do you smell steaming coolant(anti-freeze) or hear gurgling? The temp gauge that stays on is the overheat indicator?
