Step 1: check to see if there is any leakage of coolant under the car, if so it could be a leaking hose or water pump seal.
If not
Step 2: check to see if there's coolant leaking on the passenger side fire wall (inside the car) and to see if there is any fogging on the windshield when the defroster is running, or if there's smearing on the windshield, this would indicate the heater core is leaking and has gone bad.

I turn on the defrost and the windows fog up and the car smeels like antifreeze. Also feels like not enough air coming out defrost vents; most air coming out dash vents.It has been using a little water...


Hey Tbs,
You are correct in assuming it will get worse.. if you are leaking antifreeze, it wil not fix itself (DO NOT put any kind of "radiator stop leak" in it) .... take it to a qualified professional and tell them whast happening and let them repair it!! (a radiator shop - NOT the dealer)..

Smoke is coming out of my vents


You have a leaking heater core. Leaking antifreeze into the heater case. Soon you will have a puddle on the passengers side floor.

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

I think the heating core is shot


If the heater core has a hole in it you will see steam that smells like antifreeze and water and antifreeze leaking into the car.Not smoke.

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.
