Where's it from?

Everytime I drive my 98 tj i smell antifreeze. No leaks, no drop in fluid level, nothing in the oil, can't find a thing wrong anywhere. Cat ain't going bad cuz there ain't one. Any ideas where the smell is from?

Probably the heater core if you're smelling it inside the Jeep.

Does that mean it's going bad Jerry?

It's probably forming a small leak and should be replaced.

Ok, is something I can do if i'm 1/2 way capable of tearing crap apart? Or is it a big deal to do?

I'm guessing heater core also or one of the lines....if you want to consider doing it yourself check this out:
TJ Heater Core Replacement - 2

Good luck

A heater core is not too tough to tackle. I did mine in my YJ. Had to remove part of the lower dash panel. Make the job easier for you and pull your passanger seat out, your back will thank you for it.

Wondering if YJ's and TJ's are the same for this. Removing part of the lower dash panel sure beats doing everything in the link that specbill sent me. By the way, thank you Bill. I'll have to mull this one over and make sure this is the exact problem.
