From what you say,it sounds like the heater core has sprung a leak.It's inside the car and air gets blown across it to warm the car,Check your engine coolant isn't getting to low.You can bypass the core for a temporary fix by switching the heater hoses around.Bit cold in winter though.Hope this helps

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.

Heater core


Sounds like a bad heater core. You will get steam/vapor out of vents from this. If you are referring to the over flow tube being the evaporator drain tube at the firewall its because the heater core shares the same case with the A/C and its filling up with anti-freeze.

Leak on a hose, and smoke, smells like antifreeze


This is usually associated with a leak in the heater core. Only proper solution is to replace the heater core. Suggest getting a service manual from local automotive parts store if you want to do it yourself. Usually lots of hidden screws that the book will give you the correct procedure to follow. Or pay someone else to do the repair. Repair manuals usually run less than $40.

I have 2002 fordwindstar that has smoke coming from the defrost vents and smells like anti-freeze bruning


Is it smoke or mist? It sounds like the heater core has sprung a leak inside the heater case, and needs replacing. Check your heater hoses under the hood where they go into the firewall and connect to the heater core. If there is a leak there, try a tighter clamp on the hose fitting. If it's not the hose fittings, the core itself is probably leaking. Some are easy to remove and replace, and some are quite involved. Check a repair manual for your car for the procedure.

I see a misty smell like anti freeze coming through the vents in the car


Holy cow you can see smells?????


haha just messing. If you have the smell of anti freeze coming through the vents it means that the heater core needs to be replaced. The heater core cycles the hot engine coolant and uses that to warm the air to give you hot air. If you can smell it it is leaking into the vent system and needs to be replaced.

Defrosting vent is steaming out and smells like anti freeze. would it be heater core


It sounds like it, feel the rug on the passenger side if its wet then that will confirm a heater core problem.

I hope this helps you out, if it does any positive feedback would be appreciated. Thank you.

The smell anti freeze is coming threw the dash vent, but no water is leaking as of yet.


HEATER CORE IS MOST LIKELY BAD. THE HEATER CORE HOUSING HAS A VENT THAT RUNS A TUBE OUTSIDE ON THE GROUND

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.
