INTERIOR ANTIFEEZE SMELL WITH HEATE

Smells problem
1993 Oldsmobile Achieva 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 84000 miles

I smell Antifreeze when the heater is blowing but have no leaking on my floors. The windows don't steam up either. Is this still a heater core issue?

Do you find that you need too add coolant to the system?

No, I don't find that I need to add coolant. Thanks for the response on this.

Based on your description, I would say you have a very slight leak in the heater core. Not enough of a leak to reach the carpet, but enough to allow a very small amoung to get on the outside of the heater core and cause you to smell it.

Let me know if you have other questions, and thanks for using 2carpros. Com.
