Has anyone ever heard of someone being poisoned by an antifreeze leak inside a car?
I once had a lot of coolant leak inside me car - enough to soak the driver's side carpet. How dangerous is this?
Poisoning is usually caused by ingestion of the coolant. Animals die every year from ingesting it.
The poisoning only seems to occur if you ingest it.
Technically, Antifreeze fumes could poison you in high enough concentrations. However, as was stated before one is more likely to suffer ill effects via ingestion of antifreeze (especially pets). I have not heard of anyone being poisoned to the point of needing treatment, as usually if you have an antifreeze leak it will be minor and you will fix whatever is causing the leak before any lasting issues hit.
Usually a coolant leak would be on the passenger's side, because it would be leaking through the heater core, at least on the older cars. It is not dangerous unless you ingest it.
Exhaust fumes coming into the car can kill you in minutes.
