Hi all.
95 Ford Escort (not sure of trim, it's the 5 door)

I've got a sweet smell in the car, sometimes reminds me of pancakes. =)
The smoke isn't always visible but it is leaving a blue film on the winshield. My local ford dealer thinks it may be a leak in the heater core. Anyone agree/disagree with this or have other suggestions?

been there.. done that- its the heatercore.. go to kragen or some other auto parts store and get the hose bypass until you can get to it... unless u want your floorboards soppnig wet like mine were..LoL... and antifreeze takes forever to evaporate! Just remember you'll have no heater like me right now its so freakin cold, luckily I live in san diego or I'd freeze solid driving around..LoL

yup you have a bad heater core. like RoLLiNnCaLi said it takes alot to get coolant out of a car, due to the water soluble oils that get in your carpet and padding. that smell can drive you crazy.

I'd agree with the heater core... and also, WELCOME!
