sound of exhaust or intake leak + smell of coolant

for some time 5,000 miles maybe i have heard the leak either intake or exhaust. first frost used defroster and clouded the windshield. this am used heater and noticed smell of coolant. coolant is up to level but i released the pressure and left it little loose. maybe the two sound and smell are connected. just wondered if anyone out there has experienced same and does anyone know the cost of a heater core replacement at ford dealer. similarily cost of intake replacement. this is 98 f-150 4.5 V-8. thanks

Re: sound of exhaust or intake leak + smell of coolant

Sounds like classic symptoms of heater matrix / core leaking .Noise could be possibly be leaking gasket / manifold ?
