SOURCE: 2004 impala coolant level
My 2004 3.4 liter impala had this problem.I found out the Rad. overflow tank was leaking Rad fluid out of the overflow nozel on the tank.I pluged the overflow nozel and added a hole in the tank cap.filled the tank to the proper level and bleed the air out of the Rad.(plug on rigid tube of engine, pull plug til fluid comes to top while running)never had another problem over heating again.

Several things to check. Have the cooling system pressure checked. A quick and simple test. Puts system under pressure and helps to locate a leak. The coolant doesn't just go away, it's got to be leaking either externally or internally. Be sure that the radiator cap is checked too. It needs to maintain the proper pressure for the system
Sound like coolant is leaking on the exhaust system. This can result in the smell and you will not see a leak as it is evaporating when it hits the hot pipes.

No heat is often a symptom of low coolant, usually followed by overheat. There are other controls that regulate heater, but right now, re-fill the cooling system with engine running and heater on high, then check for leaks (coolant you lost went somewhere...you need to determine where) Low coolant will damage your engine. Take care of that first, then if heater still does not work, then do diagnosis on that. (if you loose the engine heat won't matter, will it!)

Testimonial: "Very helpful! And I appreciate the input very much!"
If it only happens when braking, then it is definately you brake system. Most likely you rotors and pads need replacement. If you can do car work, then this is not a difficult job, but requires some wrenches. The parts can be purchased a lot cheaper on-line. A shop will get you for $300-$800. I bought all my parts for my 2001 VW passat for $200 shipped to my door. Good Luck.
