2000 Dodge Ram
 
I have a 2000 dodge ram that when the heater is turned on the windows will not defrost,when driving the truck a type of fog emits from the vents.The heater works great but fogs everywhere.Any ideas?

Can you smell coolant? Fog from the vents is usually a pretty good sign of a leaking heater core.

Can I smell coolant?Yeah possibly,will that require a new heater core? I have heard some serious horror stories pertaining to the repair.

Yes chances are you will need a new core, the cost is not the core, its removing the dashboard to get to the core.

If there is a Dodge Ram forum out there you might want to look on that to find instructions if you are thinking of doing it yourself.
