you could have a short in the wire harness that runs up your steering column. i would check under the dash for worn,frayed or burnt wires immediately. you have a great potential for an electrical fire. good luck. please rate this solution

If its in the engine compartment there is an antifreeze leak..If it inside the car like like near to the windshield, you have a bad heater core. Good Luck contact me if you need more help.

It sounds like your heater core is leaking. Check to see if you are losing coolant, are smell like antifreeze???? With 190,000-miles this could be what your smelling??? Just a though???

Diagnosing this will be subject to a process of elimination. It could be the radio, blower motor or any other accessory particularly ones with moving parts; Try switching those off and try to note when this problem occurs and what is on/whatyou are doing. Something is getting hot causing the smell so it will be a situation where the accessory will have to run a while before doing it. It is a possibility that there is an electical curcuit overheating, but less likely. Lets rule out accessories first and give us an update. GL

You are smelling burning antifreeze. likely a head gasket but only testing will determine that for sure...Do not drive it. get it to a shop or more damage is likely.
