    Holy Smoke,Heater/Defroster problem-93 Eldo

    I have a 1993 Eldo 4.9 (not N*) with what looks like Anti-Freeze and OIL mix? coming out of my floor vent on the passenger side under the dash below the glove box. Today when I started the vehicle I waited till it warmed up. Then I turned on the A/C HI at 60* and it was cooling fine but when I toggled between 60*-90* Holy Smoke!! It was peeing out a stream of what looked like a mix of Anti-Freeze and OIL? through the floor vent on the passenger side. Also smoke was coming out of the Defroster and totally fogged up the (Driver Side ONLY) windshield. Now when I have the A/C on it drips this like oily stuff,and has since permeated the inside of the vehicle with this smell.It used to smell like leather inside. Can any one help??

    Yup, heater core. That is not smoke coming from the defroster, it's steam.

    Not sure about the cost. DIY depends on your skill level. Not the easiest job, but not the hardest either.
