CHEVROLET CAVALIER HEATER PROBLEM

2002 Chevrolet Cavalier • 222,000 miles

When I turn my heat on in the car I can smell antifreeze for about a minute then stop. Then I hear water sound under the dash board.

You need a new heater core, the sound of water indicates a restriction in the core itself, but the odor of antifreeze indicates a leaking heater core. So both of you symtoms indicate heater core issues= you need a new heater core.
