Question about 1996 Chevrolet Camaro
When the engine is cold, check the coolant level. if it's low, add enough to fill. Check the oil like this: Pull the dipstick out, wipe it clean, insert it back in the tube, wiggle it, pull it out and look closely. See if you spot what look like bubbles in the oil. This may indicate coolant is leaking past the head gaskets and getting burned, hence the overheating smell. Could be a leak at one of the hose fittings, or the hose itself, dripping onto hot metal parts. If it's a head gasket issue that needs to be addressed, but that's worst case. Check all the hoses and clamps, feel around for wetness, might just be a simple drip from a loose hose clamp.
