Check to be sure the heater hoses aren't leaking where they connect to the heater core, if they aren't then your heater core is leaking. Best to just replace it.

I can smell antifreeze coming through my vents w/o the heat/ac being on. Leak under front right side of truck, cant figure out where from. Constantly have to fill radiator...is this the heater core?


without a doubt. bet the carpet and or floorboard is damp on the passenger side. It is possible it could be the hose at the heater core but either way you have to get access to it to either replace or fix.

When running my crown Victoria I smell antifreeze is my heater core going up


If the smell is coming thru the vents, it could be the heater core.
The carpet on the passenger side may get wet at some point in time.

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

I have an 1999 chrysler 300m an it has an overheating problem. There is also water all over the driver side floor (front n back) it is soaked. It takes about 25mins b4 it starts smoking. Can som1 plz help...


Typically if your leaking coolant inside the car, it indicates your heater core is split and leaking. Replacing the heater core is quite the job. It requires removal of the dash board and heater box. i replaced one in a 97 Cirrus at work last week and it was a 6 hour job. If your not mechanically inclined i would definitley recomend phoneing around for quotes to local auto repair shops and getting it done profesionally.

Smell of antifreeze in the car why is that?


If it's not leaking externally I would check the heater core. Feel the carpet under the passenger's side of the dash. Wet carpet = heater core.

Floor board carpet is wet


the heater will not cause this. check under body for any damaged sheet metal. good test is go to carwash, give it a good soaking and see where it is leaking from.

Windows get like a foggy film and smells like old antifreeze. i think its my heater core? its a 95 bronco & where is it located exactly on that model?


Dear Foggy Film......
You are correct!!! This foggy film is the result of the antifreeze leaking and then evaporating inside the cab of the vehicle. The heater core on this vehicleis located inside the evaporator case inside the vehicle's cab on the firewall up underneath the dash closer to the passenger's side. It involves about three hours labor to replace the heater core.This is a moderate to mildly intensive repair for the first timer..if you have any more questions then you're more than welcome to get back to me!!!! HOPE I COULD HELP!!!

All my windows get foggy


If Your Fan is operating properly, along with Your defroster Meaning Your A.C. Pump is charged and engaging, I would have to take a look at Your heater-core to see if it may be leaking on to Your floor on the passenger side. Therefore causing more moisture in the car than can be evaperated under normal conditions... Hope this may Help!

Heater core leak ??


Yes it is a heater core leak, here is how to change it.

Remove battery cables. you have to remove the upper dash pad on this paticular year model. with a 10 mm socket and a 1/2 inch extension remove the 5 retaining bolts. remove the blower assembly under the passenger side of dash. remove passenger side seat and center counsole. drain radiator. disconnect hoses from now exposed heater core. turn it 180 degrees and slide out. Replace in reverse order.
