The heater core or the evaporator core housing could be leaking

We don't smell the odor all the time. Just when we are stopped at a traffic light and it seems to be mainly when the defrost is on.

"all the time everywhere you stop?"

If you are wondering if it might just be exhaust from other vehicles, I don't think that's the case. I believe it is coming from our vehicle.
