Could be a bad heater hose or at leaky connection between the hose and the heater core if your lucky. A bad heater core if your not.

Can you tell me why my truck smells antifreezy when I started


Is the heater or ac fan on....? Where is the smell coming from?

my thought are if smell coming from exhaust, you have a head gasket problem.

If smell coming from AC or heater, likely a heater core leaking!

Strong antifreeze smell when running the heater in 99 silverado, can't see a leak, strong smell, is heater core bad


Usually a smell of antifreeze in the cab when the heater is running is a sign the heater core is leaking. Just becasue you dont see a leak at this time doesn't mean there isn't one. It might small enough that the haet from the core is burning off the leaking antifreeze. I would suggest replacing the core before you get in one day and there is a puddle on your floorboard. Or if you go to a local parts store and rent a cooling system pressure tester, wait until the vehicle is cold, pressure the system to 12 lbs and then check for leaks. Hope this helps you out......

Heater Core Leaking 2001 GMC Sierra 5.3. I have a strong antifreeze smell in the cab and this morning the heater fogged up the windows. I have read that replacing the heater core also involves evacuating...


you could quick fix! but you will have no heat, 1st under the hood, look at the back of motor, follow all you're radiator hoses, take two hoses off the heater core stick a pipe that is big enough then clamp the pipe down. to both sides of hoses to the pipe you will eventually have to replace heater core!!

Antifreeze smell and smoke coming out of vents


You have a coolant leak most likely in the heater core. Try disconnecting your heater hoses and coupling them together, then running the engine to see if the leak goes away. If it does, I would have the heater core replaced.

01 gmc truck 1500 2wd oder of antifreeze inside cab


the small radiator just inside the cab, where the hoses go to the heater is leaking. You may try using stop leak (many don't recommend this) or take off the heater radiator. it will probably get worse when you turn on the heater and fog up the windshield if not fixed. hope this helps.
