My Van is having several issues. The heat is not working most of the time and its losing antifreeze, I can smell it but I can't find a leak. Its not under the van after I've been parked and its not coming out the exhaust. Also, its not overheating. Worried its serious, like a gasket or cylinder. Hoping its easy like a thermostat, any ideas?

Check your oil level. See if it's higher than it should be and if you have a light brown, frothy film on the dip stick. If either of these are true, you probably have a head gasket leaking allowing coolant to get into the oil pan.
The coolant has to be going somewhere!

The oil has been low to. I had to put oil in a couple of weeks ago.

Our '05 T&C just went in the shop with the same symptoms. It needed to have the water pump replaced with only 75K on the clock. Seems too early to me, but I've seen others have to replace them even earlier. I'm not at all happy with the build quality of these things!
