I would try using baking soda and soapy water. The baking soda will help remove the foul odor. And febreeze auto clips work wonders. You may need to buy the double pack for a spacious interior. Vinegar is also good for removing odors, but then you'd have that smell in the car. If you choose to use vinegar dilute with water. hope this helps.
You might want to try a detailing shop. They have commercial products for just such a problem. If the spill was in the fabric where a person would sit, it is in the foam padding too. And could have run down into the seams. Nature's Miracle which is available at pet stores, or lemon juice and water will help cut the smell that remains.
there is a cooler for the trans fluid that runs threw the f the radiator the cooler splits and trans pressure being higher while running pushes into the coolant how ever as it cools down the coolant pressure can push the coolant into the trans so see if the trans fluid looks like a straw beery milk shake if so try and keep flushing the trans until the fluid is clean and fresh if the trans makes it threw the coolant then you will need to flush the cooling system i use pinesol it breaks down the oil
YOU SAW SMOKE COMING OUT EXHAUST PIPE.SOUND LIKE BLOWN HEAD GASKET.TOO MUCH ANTIFREEZE GOT IN THE CRANKCASE AND CYLINDER BLOCK BY THE PISTONS CAUSING ENGINE TO HYDROLOCK.CHECK CRANK CASE TO SEE ITS FULL OF COOLANNT.IT WILL LOOK LIKE A MILK SHAKE.
You are probably right ... probably worn ... probably loose ... probably has a little anti-freeze spilled on it. If it is troublesome ... you can treat it with belt dressing ... which MAY make it worse ... or you can replace the belts. You are probably doomed to some squeeking on your 12+ year old car ... sorry ... If you replace the belts, make sure you clean all the pulleys ... Spray Brake Cleaner is good for this.
In my experience ... just like spilled milk ... one drop of spilled anti freeze suddenly looks like 10 gallons as far as squeekability is concerned.
its not hard, the seats are meant to be removed fairly easily, there are two latches under the seat about a foot in from each edge that have to be released (i think you just reach up under and then its just like a trunk or glove box latch, then push back on the seat and lift up on the front and it should pull out.
