Coolant smell comes into the cab when heat or AC is turned on
1996 F250 7.3L XL / 250,000 Miles / Manual /
When I turn on the heater or AC I get a semi strong smell of coolant fluid in the cab of the truck. I only get the smell for a short bit when I turn on the heater or AC, it will go away after about a minute or so. I did just replace the blower motor but it wasnít until after replacing the glow plugs a few days later did I notice the smell. I checked to make sure that I didnít nick a hose, and I havenít noticed any coolant leaks. Oh yes Ė Firestone did replace my water pump, clutch fan and fan. This was before anything I replaced and long before I smelled anything out of the usual.
Appreciate your input in the matter !!
