Strong anti-freeze smell


I recognize a strong anti-freeze smell in the car, I also see steam and smoke come

out from my heater vents, what's wrong?


It sounds like your heater core is leaking. The heater core is part of the engine cooling system, 

anti-freeze runs through the entire heating system. If the heater core leaks,the anti-freeze

drains out, the blower fan will blow the anti-freeze and steam up to the windshield and heater vents.

Regular maintenance like cooling system flush will help to prevent blockage and corrosion build 

up in the cooling system.
