I have no heat and antifreeze smell is coming into the van its a 2000 ford winstar


Is your floor wet damp carpet? Does the smell kinda smell sweet or like maple syrup? If so your heater core is leaking. Your heater core is up under ur dash inside the van onthe firewall

My ford 1997 F-150 4.6L has a antifreeze smell in the cab when it is running, think it might be the heatercore?


yes it sounds like it might be the heater core when your heater core goes bad it leaks and seeing that it is in the cab it will have that smell usually when it leaks your floors will be wet from the leak. bypass the heater core unitl you can get it fixed to prevent any electrical problems

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.

I have a 1996 Ford Explorer, the temp gauge goes up just a little bit above normal that is when I smell antifreeze and I get a little bit fogged up and film on window then it goes back down to normal. And...


You should look under the dash on the passenger side to see if there is any evidence of antifreeze on the bottom of the heater plenium. What usually starts as a small leak in the interior of the plenium will eventually lead to the heater core leaking all over the interior. You are getting steam and the smell becasue the is a small leak now inside that enclosure with the subsequent results.

I smell antifreeze,found no leaks,vehicle is not running hot


Its the heater core you smell it on the inside because the fan is blowing it into the vehicle antifreeze is unuswal stuff it forms a mist and becomes air borne even a small leak you will smell with the fan running look for wet spots on the carpet under the core but the mist may be so fine and you wonn;t feel it but this your problem

Can a sweet smelling heater be a water pump problem or only a heater core leak


I could be either one,but if you smell antifreeze, than you should be able to see a leak while the engine is at running temp. Fell the floor for wetness for heater core, Check under the hood for wetness for hose or radiator. Also, if your windshield fogs up, it is most likely the heater core. You can also pressure test the cooling system to verify where the leak is.

Smell anti freeze when ac on


I respectfully disagree with stop leak of any kind its a very temporary fix. You have a cracked heater core, thats why you smell antifreeze.

Why is it that i smell antifreeze coming into the car through the air vents


99% of the time it is a leaking heater core that gives you the antifreeze smell.......it will coat the inside of the windshield too possibly reducing vision under certain conditions.
Clean it well after changing the heater core.

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

My ford truck smells of antifreeze?


You have a bad heater hose and it's being pulled in the cab, if your ucky. Otherwise you will have to pull out the heater core and replace it. A new one runs about $75.00 and can be bought at any auto parts store if you wan to try this on your own post here and I will give you the proceedure.
