Ask Bob: Smoking Heater

by Bob DeP.

Dear Bob,
My husband owns a 1987 Ford Ranger and for the past couple of weeks when the heat is on smoke comes out. The smell is an oily smell and the windows get coated with a greasy film; we can't even see out them. Any ideas?

You have a cracked heater core and that oily film is antifreeze!
Good Luck!
