pme took the bypass valve route. Using his reasoning and your symptoms, I suggest the nightmare - a leaking heater core. I have experienced a few. The nightmare is that changing the heater core is laborious on the order of changing an engine. The smell of antifreeze when the car warms up and the coolant drips under the passenger side. If you mean by passenger side, under the passenger seat, that points to the heater core. Before acceptin the nightmare diagnosis, do a test. Remove the hoses from the heater in and from the heater out. If the symptoms go away, nightmare. If you still get the symptoms, then go for the bypass valve. I have driven more than one car with the heater bypassed, but I live where only windows or ac is necessary for more than 11 months a year. Good luck and may the Force be with you.
