Asked by JoshMo1969 Sep 15, 2019 at 04:26 PM about the 2005 Mazda Tribute i 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The fresh air vent in my 2005 Mazda Tribute AWD is blowing warmer air than
outside and fogging up my windows.  What could be causing this?  I have taken
the car in for this problem and the mechanics can't seem to find the issue.  I
recently replaced the blower as it would only work on the max speed and that
issue is fixed.  Please help, thanks!

Is there a thin film on the inside of the windshield and not just fog? That to me says the heater core is leaking and you need to replace.

No film on the windshield as I keep it clean. It's definitely something fogging up the windows because when I turn on the defrost or AC it slowly goes away. Thanks for your reply!

I haven't checked the coolant, but will do so. Thanks!
