Sounds like you may have a cracked hose going to your wiper squirters. The excess could be spraying into the plastic cowl under your wipers and when you turn on the defrost, the air intake from the blower motor picks it up. Look very closely at your washer fluid jug level and keep an eye on it.

Pretty sure that cowl can be removed without removing the wipers. I'd take it off and have a buddy squirt washer fluid while you very carefully watch the connections to each outlet.

yeah i will have to pop the hood and turn the squirt on . but naked eye inspection didnt turn up anything

on another note i just replaced the radiator(unrelated) took about a solid hour to hour/half . watched richpin do it first so i knew what to expect going in .

I doubt that the radiator replacement has anything to do with it either. I like Richpin. He does some great videos.
