Sweet Smell and Water Leaking Inside Car

I noticed lately that I have this sweet smell inside the cab of the vehicle and its worse with my A/C or fan on, but seems to be there all the time.  There is also water leaking on the passenger floor area but the windshield does not seem to be leaking and the leak happens regardless of it raining outside or not.




Hey there Andy,

I would bet you have a heater core leaking coolant/antifreeze inside your car. Lucky for you, there is a very cheap and easy fix you can do yourself.

Although, you wont have a heater until you replace the heater core….but you wont have any of the other problems you describe either. Here is an article I wrote about it and how you can fix the problem.
