Your heater core is leaking. The smell and smoke is from the coolant evaporation.

Volvo S70 Turbo..Just had head gasket replaced. I'm getting white smoke out the exhaust, white smoke out the dip stick and pressure at the oil fill cap. The oil at the dip stck seams a little foamy. Oil...


Not good. Someone didn't put it together right or something came apart. It's burning oil. Check the inside of your tail pipe. If it's wet and oilly then you are burning oil. Oil foaming is from compressed air getting to it. You will have to recheck everything done when head gasket set was replaced.
Good luck and thanks for your question and I hope my suggestions help. burdfrenzy

My volvo s70 is having smoke come in through the air vents and it has a funny smell


If it smells sweet it is coolant and this is a sure sign your heater core is leaking. The only fix is to replace it.

Chain smoker


Turbo oil seal is probably bad. This lets oil leak into the air intake from the turbo bearing. If smoke goes away during hard acceration, then this is probably your problem. Turbo replacement or rebuild is the fix for this.

Car Heater smells strange


from he Popular Mechanics site if the smell in your car is like maple syrup:


(1) SMELLS LIKE: MAPLE SYRUP
WHEN: After the engine has warmed or possibly even after it's shut off for a few minutes.
THE CULPRIT: Coolant containing sweet-smelling (but toxic) ethylene glycol is leaking from somewhere. It could be coming from a radiator or heater hose, a failed intake manifold gasket or cylinder head. It might be coming from a leaky radiator cap or the radiator itself, especially if you smell it outside the car. A strong odor inside the passenger compartment probably means a bad heater core.

White smoke from air vents


Could be an incorrect refrigerant charge or defective pressure switch causing the evaporator to freeze and the air flow over it is causing the ice to melt and the resulting white smoke is condensation
