I have a 99 Mountaineer. I am smelling antifreeze, but it is not overheating. What do I need to do to stop the smell?

First, you need to identify where it is coming from. If it is in the vehicle, chances are it is coming from the heater core.

What I recommend is to have the cooling system pressure checked to see if there are any leaks. If you smell it, it is leaking.
