My heater was working fine last week ,then i noticed it was getting cooler in car then it just blows col to cold air this week it a 1977 300d


If the car overheats also, replace thermostat.Could be heater core needs to be replaced, Any water on passenger side floor?, or smell of coolant?or are windows misty on inside of car?when you slide control from cool to heat it is supposed to close a door that lets in cold air, make sure thats working, usually you can hear it shut. lastly, check water pump. You do have enough coolant in system right?

When I turn my heater and defroster on, a bad smell starts and the windows fog up but the air is hot.


This may be due to a bad heater core or dirty core with a plugged water drain, first see if the a/c works. turn it on and see if the air gets cold and if the ac compressor works.

The way the defrost works to keep windows from fogging up is that when the front defroster is tuned on the ac should also be on, on most cars when you go to defrost it will turn ac on automatic. the system then uses hot and cold air to remove the moisture in the air to avoid window fogging. if your a/c is not working then that may cause window to fog, but if you are also getting a smell then the drain that lets out condensation may be plugged and then water builds up and also mold from always being wet and when heat is on you smell that.


i want you to run the defrost and when windows fog up wipe window with hand and see if it is greasy . if it feels oily then you may have a bad heater core, the core leaks coolant out and steam and causing windows to fog up with a flim of grease.

When the heat is on it blows steam, fogging up my windows and windsheild. Is this the heater core?


yes, the heater core is leaking coolent and when the heat is turned on , the evaporated coolent is what is steaming your windshield.
Replace the heater core to solve this problem.

While driving my 95 explorer i noticed the heater wasnt getting hot its luke warm and when i turn on the defroster i start to smell anti freeze and all of the windows fog up


no heat is probably low coolant or bad thermostat,although you have fog and smell ! the heating and cooling systems are closed systems the only way the windows fog is the coolant is hot and steams inside the car due to some leak inside the heater core box. as well as the smell being present. Now it is possible that a little leak has occured where the coolant supply or return line connects to the heater core and is running into the car which is running onto the core and creating steam and smell. hopefully it is a easy clamp tighten fix for you.

My front defroster is not working at its best, however the back one is working properly. If I add any heat while trying to defrost my windows the problem get worst.


Sounds like the heater core is leaking coolant. If it is leaking it will blow steam out of defrost vents and fog the windshield. Symptoms: low coolant level in radiator, steam coming out vents when engine is warmed up, odor of anti-freeze coming out of vents, wet carpet in floorboard near heater blower motor.
If so, replace heater core.

Heat


So I am guessing the heater core, the only other thing it would be would be any leak that is allowing moisture in the car. is the floor board wet on the passengers side?

Windows steaming up in the inside.


check for water in the heating duct, you have to get under nearth the dashboad, see if there are water, and where it comes from. the only way the windows steamup is by steam (hot water.), and check for the door operation, you may not have the AC or the cold air mix.
