Q: Coolant leak pulling left

asked by on

My van has a weird smell with some steam that comes out of the vents that fog up the dash area. I saw some dirty coolant leaking out all over the passenger side on the front floor, and it dripped down underneath the van. I think it’s the heater core but not sure. I want to get your opinion on whether it’s a pipe and or heater core. And I need some ideas on the brakes. I replaced both front pads, calipers, bearings and rotors on the passenger side. The van pulled really hard to the left before I replaced them. It straightens out after a second now. It might be either the alignment or the drum brakes, but I'm not sure. What are your ideas and thoughts on this?
