Antifreeze smell in a/c vents.

Ok, when i turned on my heater in my truck yesterday, i noticed a strong oder of antifreeze. The same smell as if it were over heating. My truck is not over heating. Theres also a lingering odor when the vents are off. Does anybody know what this might be? Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance and happy new year.

Your heater core is leaking and needs to be replaced.
