That is normally a sign that the heater core is leaking. You will probably also find a wet spot under the carpet on the passenger's side. It needs to be replaced. Hope this helps.

Water is leaking from the floor vents what could be the proble?


Check your heater radiator. It is usually mounted behind/near the glove box areas on most cars. It is like a small version of the large radiator that is mounted on the front of your vehicle under the hood. Antifreeze and coolant (does it smell a little like antifreeze?) flows thru your front radiator, thru the block and hoses, and cycles thru the radiator for your heating system. If the radiator is leaking, often it cycles thru the vents on the interior.
Another possibility MIGHT be the AC system and condensation/AC coolant that is building up in/on the lines and transferring thru the vents.

Coolant leaks heavily from passengers side. Started yesterday morning on the way to work. I noticed the vents weren't blowing hot air. Then I noticed the car start to overheat. I didn't drive any more...


Ok, may i suggest that you check your HEATER COIL, you can located it by pulling up " HEATER COIL" for your specific vehicle, this is what your coolant travels thru while hot and air passes thru this coil to produce the heat to warm your vehicle and typically the heater coils are located on the passenger side. Now as far as the leak location, check heater coil connections it could be the coil itself. GOOD LUCK!

While driving my 96 s10 2.2L to work this morning, I noticed once I got off the interstate and started through town my heater suddenly stopped blowing hot air and the engine temp gauge was running hotter...


you let the water drop in the header tank by how much?? half a gall!!! there must be a very big warter leak there some were,,,letting the water drop so far has let air into the water jaket in the engine so you need to bleed this air out from the bleed velve in one of the top water hoses,,,
your a lucky chap to get away with this one??? carry a big bottol of rad seal around with you?

Wife has a 2006 Dodge Caravan, she said smoke without a smell was coming from her a/c vents, but only when using outside air not on recir. there was not a sweet smell , or a burning smell, but the outside...


Could be a leaking valve cover gasket or some other leak being picked up at the cowl vent and pumped into the van. Your heater fan fresh air inlet is at your passenger side wiper arm.

It isn't heating correctly and i smell antifreeze. How do I check and replace a heater core in it?


If your heater core was leaking you would have antifeeze coming thru your vents and putting a greasy film on your windshield. You would smell antifreeze the stongest if it was leaking onto a hot engine part. low antifreeze will cause bad heater performance, I would check by the thermostate housing, and the water pump for leaks
