1999 Ford Expedition V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 180000 miles
I have a 99 expedition and with the a/c going the car gives off a horrible odor. I checked with a shop and he knew right away the heater core was bad and that's why it had a burning cat pee smell to it. Which outside the car smelled like burning coolant. I haven't got it fixed yet but its been about a week and a half. I had to replace the alternator yesterday cause while driving to work the battery gauge was dropping fast. Now today, the car ran fine but service engine soon light came on and the new alternator makes a whistling sound and there's also a hissing sound coming from it. Could the bad heater core be the culprit for a service engine soon light? I plan on getting it checked tomorrow for the light to find out exactly what the code is. I also have someone this weekend fixing the heater core this weekend. Is it bad to drive with a bad heater core if its not leaking inside the car, there's no big puddles underneath the car when its idling either.
have the same problem?
