The heater core is cracked. You may also be smelling a sweet sort of smell when you turn on the heat and the car is running hot. That sweet smell comes from the anitfreeze when it burns.
I have a 1998 Ford Expedition and I smell antifreeze inside the truck. also antifreeze leaking around the passenger side of motor outside..... I can see a mist coming out of the ac vents.... could it be bad heater core and is it easy to fix or do you have step by step removal/installation instructions? please help
Your heater core is probably cracked. There is alot of work to get to the core. You have to remove the front dash board.
You probably have a leak in the heater core.
The car will over heat.
heat core. leak. thermostat. no antifreeze.
An antifreeze leak.An antifreeze leak.
No. they're dissolved in each other and are quite hard to seperate.
Coolant leak, possible heater core. Suggest to have it pressure tested to find leak.
The leak would vary on the size of the hole or seal failure.
If not tight enough to seal it will leak.
There may be a hole in the radiator?
maybe your head gasket
Your heater uses somthing akin to a mini radiator to transfer heat from your engine to the cars interior. However, if you're smelling antifreeze, you have some type of leak.
cap is off
You would have a leak, from either the pipes to the heater matrix (radiator), or the matrix itself.
I had a 2000 Lincoln LS and the Antifreeze Reservoir had a rash of heat induced cracks on the side facing the Firewall. The antifreeze would ooze and evaporate without leaving a puddle but a whiff of the smell could be noticed on some occasions. My 2005 LS has some of the same cracks but has not started to leak or ooze antifreeze. Also on my 2005 LS there was an upper hose leak but only with 16 psi or more of pressure.
more info. 65;
most likely a blown head gasket.
hater core is bad
It would depend on where the leak is coming from. Give us more info.
you got an antifreeze leak
Sounds like a leak.
cracked head or bad gasket
Broken hose? Leak at radiator? Leak at water pump? Defective thermostat? Pressure test system to try to determine source of leak
You have a leak, without knowing what is leaking you can not get a quote.
