One problem could the water inlet hose "O" ring on the pipe that goes from the lower radiator hose to the block. Also your heater core could be leaking. If that's the case, your front windshield will fog up in the colder weather.sounds like your heater core is bad or leaking as was spoke of. for you said whenyour heat it on , there is a sweet smell. You get your heat from the heater core, so if your smelling antifreeze when your heater is on, I would believe , it's your heater core. As far as the sweet smell your getting from the heat.

check the antifreeze level in the radiator, when a heater blows cool/cold air there is not enough antifreeze/water in the radiator.

if it rear air and heat it could be the line carring the antifreeze tho the back heater core.

It sounds like the heater core is leaking. Check for the smell of antifreeze and that will confirm the bad heater core.

The heater core or a hose to the heater core has a leak. Hopefully it's a hose under the hood because it's a very involved process to get the heater core out.

User Avatar

There are a bunch of things that can cause that. Water pump, thermostat, switch not engaging the heater, air in the heater core, not enough antifreeze in the cooling system. do i need a new thermostat

too much anti freeze has nothing to do with heater. but you should always keep the antifreeze level under the MAX indicator on the reservoir because you need the space for the heated antifreeze to expand and to siphoned back when it's cooled down.

Blown Heater Core - The heater fan blows past the heater core and if it has a hole in it your antifreeze ios being blown onto your windshield.

If the heater core in your vehicle goes out, you will not be able to use your heater or defroster. You will also notice the smell of antifreeze throughout the vehicle and possibly a film on the windshield from the antifreeze.

You have a leaking heater core. You might smell antifreeze if you turn on the defroster.

Antifreeze is used to heat the cab of your vehicle. When you turn on your heat in your cab, it opens up a valve that allows the hot antifreeze to flow from the radiator into the heater core. If there is a leak in the rubber tubes that flow into the heater core, or if the heatercore is damaged, you will smell the antifreeze in the cab of the vehicle. You may need new hoses to the heater core and/or a new heater core.

if you got antifreeze on your windshield when you turn the heater on, it's bad

Your car shouldn't "burn" antifreeze. If it actually is "burning" antifreeze then chances are you have a blown/leaking head gasket or possibly a cracked engine block which allows antifreeze to enter the combustion chambers. If your antifreeze is just disappearing then it is probably leaking out from somewhere. Possible leak areas to check out would be the radiator hoses, heater hoses, radiator, water pump, and the heater core. Most of the time if the heater core is leaking you'll be able to smell the antifreeze inside the car while the engine is running and the heater is on.

The nipple next to the heater core hoses is the drain tube for the a/c . The antifreeze is coming from the heater core , that is leaking .

The Dodge Caravan heater was invented in 1984 by the Dodge and Mopar companies. Since it's creation it has evolved into a much bigger and popular van.

Antifreeze will be leaking in the floorboard on the passenger side, there will be a smell of antifreeze through the vents.

Clarification of terminology- Heater core not heater coil. And Yes there is a very good chance that it may be leaking.

If someone needs information about replacing a caravan heater, can be found on the Camping and Caravnning Club website, a website dedicated to caravans.

You have either a cracked heater core or bad heater hoses that are allowing antifreeze to enter into the vehicle............

User Avatar

possibly a leaking heater core look for antifreeze dripping into the interior of the vehicle. usually it is the core or hose connected to the heater core.

User Avatar

It could be a partially blocked heater core, a faulty heater valve that allows the coolant through the heater core or it could be a faulty water pump.

User Avatar

Check both the heater core as well as the heater hoses for leaks...........
