It is your heater core. I fixed mine for $144. Ordered the new part on Ebay and followed these instructions http://www.volvospeed.com/vs_forum/index.php?showtopic=9717 It was very simple, I'm a middle age grandmother! The hardest part was cleaning up all the antifreeze. You will need a shopvac, a small one is $20 at WalMart.

SOURCE: 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.

Sure sounds like the heater core, the only other thing would be some time of leak that is raising the moisture in the car is the floor board on the passengers side wet? If not look toward the heater core.

IT is very easy get all of the intake ducts out of the way to get access to the starter motortakk off rubber boot and first disconnect neg battery terminal next unbolt two bolts that hold starter and the 3 wires and ground terminal from starter (i have a 14 millimeter wrench that i cuit in half to make removal easier) and you should be all-set
