Hey guys, I just bought my wife a 98 Intrepid a few months ago. I noticed a faint smell of anitfreeze when she brought it home (from interior) and it was strong when we exited the car. I opened the hood and looked for a leak, nothing, I did the same for the interior, same outcome. I also noticed when she goes in reverse and hits the gas, there is a slight vibrating sound, I can't find it either. The car has a full warranty, but not sure if I wanna take it in for tiny things like that, should I?null :confused:

Don't think like that...nothing's to small if it's going to give you piece of mind...have it checked out!

when i had my '97 <and went thru 3 water pumps> I would get that smell whenver there was a leak <one leak was a pinhole leak so tiny I never saw it, but the dealer found it!>

so yeah, best advice is get it checked out before u overheat and get stranded

The worst thing I can thing of that it might be is a heater core... If that's what it is, you'll be glad you got it checked out under warantee. Those things are expensive! (most of it's labor, and some cars necessitate partial engine removal to change the thing!)
