Did you use the wiper fluid? sometimes the smell can be sucked in (the vent is right below the windshield). I think its odd to be an 04 with a heater core leak but maybe you hit the lottery on that.

Or heater hose leak. Sometimes they don't seal around the heater core inlet and outlet too well where it passes through the firewall. The hoses make it spray at the firewall. Haven't seen it on a ranger ; but why should rangers be special?
