Like many many before it, the heater core needs to be replaced. find a radiator and air conditioning shop and pay them to install a new heater core which you will have already bought on ebay. after they are done you will need to take it to a detail or car radio shop, have the carpet pulled, cleaned, reinstalled.

Check the engine see if leaking out of side of engine. Could be welsh plugs are corroded.. Check when engine cold under the inlet manifold of the engine for any thin rubber hoses that might be hidden from normal view.

Bad heater core allows antifreeze into floorboard. It is a major repair to replace, requiring dash removal.

Coolant leaking somewhere unknown, have to add to reservoir every 3 days or so, strong antifreeze smell with a/c on. water sloshing sound in passenger side dashboard. bad heater core?


sound like a bad heater core! the heater core is like a small radiator that is usually locaded in the dashboard on the passenger side. now if the leaking is really bad you are going to see water dripping by the front passenger tire or if it gets really bad it may leak inside the car. in order to fix this problem the HEATER CORE must be replaced. good luck

My 2003 jeep grand cherokee laredo has a problem with my coolant reservoir drains quickly and i also have condensation on inside of window. when i turn on the heater i see dust or steam come from...


Your water heater core is beginning to leak. Eventually, you will find an antifreeze puddle on the passenger side floor which can eventually lead to the rupture of the heater core and a large amount of antifreeze in gaseous form within the cars interior.

It is time for a new heater core. Should you want to go the cheapest route, you can purchase a bottle of copper plugging agent. Ask your local car part guru what he has to plug a leak in the heater core.

Be forewarned: should you go this cheap route, you risk clogging your heater core for good and you will no longer have heat until you replace the heater core.

Leaking antifreeze in the passenger side


I am assuming that you mean that it is leaking within the passenger compartment. In this case, the most likely cause is a leak from the heater core. The only proper fix is to replace it.

Overheated yesterday put antifreeze in bc it was almost empty did fine now its overheated again


Well Shelly the antifreeze is exiting the cooling system through a leak somewhere. Pouring more antifreeze in is not going to fix the leak. Often the leak is external to the engine and you can see a big puddle form on the ground where the car sits, common examples are burst hoses, leaking radiator, and a leaking heater core can create a wet mess on the passenger side floor. Other leaks such as bad gaskets and cracks in the head and block can cause the antifreeze to leak into the cylinders and lubrication system. First you must find out where the antifreeze is being lost, then figure out if the repair is worth it.

Anti freeze all over the place


it could be antifreeze that was on the frame after changing the radiator the best way to tell is run car through a car that has the bottom wash or in a self wash and on... rinse... spray the area around radiator ...then check again later for antifreeze on ground
