I have a 1995 Chev Astro Van which has about 110, 00 miles on it. Recently I went to get an oil change and the tech said he smelled antifreeze. So I checked it out and there was definetely a leak some where. I replaced the main top radiator hose (it looked pretty rough) but there was still a sweet smell. Today I noticed smoke coming from my exhaust so I pulled over and I have a good leak coming from one of the hoses. Its not the one I replaced and It is not the bottom radiator hose but looks to be on top left side of engine. Does any one know the name of the hose? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Well, it sounds to me like you have a heater hose thats bad. When you say left do you mean sitting in the vehicle or standing in front? I think you mean the passenger side and if it's what I think you will have water running down on the exhaust on that side.
Chase the hose and if it goes to the firewall it's your heater hose. Shoul be a pretty easy change out, just lose some anti-freeze in the process.
Hope this helps.?
