You have either a cracked heater core or bad heater hoses that are allowing antifreeze to enter into the vehicle............
A burning smell from a car's brakes means that you are braking very hard or there is a electrical short circuit in the car. Another reason for a burning smell may actually be coming from the car's heater.
You most likely have a leak or your car is overheating. If you are smelling it in the car then in all probability the heater core is leaking.
If you smell antifreeze in the passenger compartment of your car your heater core is probably leaking. It's under the dash somewhere ( depends on the make and model ). Another symptom of a leaking heater core is moisture build up on the inside of the windshield when you run your defroster.
That "mist" is more than likely coolant steam coming from a leaky heater core. Replacing the heater core is your best option.
It is possible that a car can smell like gas when the heater is turned on for a few reasons. One possible reason that this happens could be a leak in the line.
Depends on the smell. if it smells sweet, like antifreeze, then it is probably a leak in the heater core. This is a small radiator that runs from the main radiator and makes hot air for the heater. If it smells like gasoline, may be a gas leak. Do not drive the car, get it fixed by a professional. If it smells like smoke, it may be an oil leak. get it checked.
Do you mean where on a car is a block heater install or who do you take the car to to install?
If the car heat has a fresh air setting, then it could be drawing air from outside of the vehicle. The fumes are most likely coming from a problem under the hood.
dryer sheets in the heater vents may help
Leaking heater core
more then likely your heater core has a hole in it do you smell a sweet smell coming from the same area or see any anti-freeze if so you need to replace your heater core
If the heater has a sweet smell it could be that the heater core is leaking engine coolant. When the leak gets worse you will have a wet floor on the passenger side and the windshield will fog up when you turn on the defroster.
Heater core is probally leaking. Should be located under dash on passenger side.
Typical of the heater core leaking. Overheat because of low fluid and pressure. Foggy windshield due to heater core leaking and will smell antifreeze in the car.
installed means to put in. I installed a heater in my car. I put in a heater in my car.
Bad heater core >>> Check for coolant on the passenger side front, just under the glove compartment floor. Bad head gasket >>> Check for coolant mix with the motor oil.
if you can smell antifreeze you need to replace the heater core in the vehicle

You have a leaking heater core. You might smell antifreeze if you turn on the defroster.
If you mean engine coolant is getting into the car, the heater core is leaking coolant causing the coolant level to drop and that causes the engine to over heat.
