Sounds like the heater core is leaking if your smelling anti freeze inside the car.

You can perform a cooling system pressure test as well.

nothing on the carpet though


Then it is just starting to leak, a slow leak.

If you're smelling it inside the car it's the heater core. It's probably a pin hole and not dumping enough "yet" to make the floor damp.

ok thanks guys ill get that checked
