I turn on the defrost and the windows fog up and the car smeels like antifreeze. Also feels like not enough air coming out defrost vents; most air coming out dash vents.It has been using a little water lately and I noticed water/antifreese on the ground below the trans, no were else. This started about 4 days ago. Before that it had a great defroster. The heater still puts out heat and the a/c still works good. I think it might be the heater core?

No heat Suddenly the heater isn't. Used to warm up and defrost the windows in 5 minutes, now nothing. On the last highway drive it started out with heat, then it quit and while driving it came back on for the last 10 miles. Since then nothing. The auto fan comes on and turns the speed down if it's a warm enough day. There is no fan at all on the floor setting for the heater either, it only works on mix and defrost. And is there a way (when the heater is working again) to bypass the temp. control
