Check your oil see if it is milky looking. If it is you might have a head gasket on the way out.

What does a freon leak in a deep freeze smell like?


Freon is odorless. A sewer odor could be caused by an unused sink, tub, or floor drain trap where the water has evaporated. A gas odor is a very serious issue that should be checked immediately by the gas company or the fire department. Gas can seep in from a leak outside the house or accumulate in a wall if a fitting fails.

Fogging of the windows inside is usually caused by a heater core leaking.
That is located under the dashboard on the passenger side. If you have an odor of anti-freeze or the floor is a little wet on that side, that's a sure sign of it leaking. Have someone check for that.

if you r getting smell in car and fog on windshield, with known history for common problem, you have a heater core leaking, You could try a stop leak from a parts supplier, but you need a heater core, and is a rather big job, as entire dash needs to be pulled back to axcess

try stop leak, if that doesn't fix, you didn't waste alot of time and money

good luck, and if you wanna tackle job, let me know i will send guided steps to help you along

My car leaks antifreeze smokes when u turn it off but doesn't get hot


a simple pressure test will tell you where the leak is coming from. typically a car can nave very low anti-freeze and not over heat, the smoke that you are seeing is most likely anti-freeze that is getting on the engine or exhaust manifold and causing the leaking coolant to smoke ( burnt coolant will have a sweet odor). chances are that you have a loose or bad hose clamp or hose some place. However it is my opinion that you should start with a pressure test and isolate where the leak is coming from.

I am not getting any heat in my car and it was warmed up. The tempature gage is rising high. What fluid is low? I also, have a leak of something on the passenger's side coming out of engine, it is clear...


Sounds like it's low on coolant. Check radiator. If low on coolant, heater may not get hot & temp gauge will read hot. The leak could possibly be a coolant leak..? Anti-freeze has a distinct odor when leaking from a hot engine. If that's the case, find the leak and have it repaired.

Heater immediately fogs all windows and there is a sweet odor in the cab of 2003 Buick Rendezvous, defroster works fine, but will not clear the windows after heat is put on


Sounds like a possible heater core failure(hole in it) the smell indicates to me the coolant(anti-freeze) is leaking into the passenger compartment.
Check the carpet in front of the front passenger seat for moisture, this would confirm heater core leak.
Good luck !

Bad odor (Wire sheathing?) from vents when fan is on. We definitely have an intermittant (3 or 4 times in past year) driver side actuator problem. Cannot tell if odor is coming from all vents or not....


the heater core is bad it could be leaking and thats what the smell is coming from. you only smell it when the heat is on is because air flows throught the heater core to warm it by the hot anti freeze that flows through the heater core see if you anti freeze resivoir is low.

I get a smell of antifreeze when I put the outside


Firsdt check the radiator cap thats it tight , then check for any anti freeze visible on the engine, then check under the car for any leaks. Is the smell of anti freeze inside the car ? , check the heater core you may have a leak there. the newer heater cores are aluminum and certain anti freezes, are extra acidic , which causes the anti freeze to eat at the heater core causing leaks, it maybe be a pin hole leak in the heater core ,causing the smell.
