SOURCE: Very hot car.
I'd test the fan by connecting it directly to the battery to verity it is functioning. If it is, check the relays that control the fans they should be located in the fuse box in the engine bay. If the relays are ok the only other thing that could be causing the problem is the temp sensor on the radiator.

if the smell only comes on when the heater is on try pulling the blower motor mice like to build nests in the blower motor housing.

those are 2 hoses an inlet and outlet for your heater.take a look inside the car at the carpet and see if there is anti freeze.the heater core can leak,and then run down the hose,but you may be lucky and just the hose is no good.they are quite stiff to take off,you have to twist them as well as pull.go slowly,damage to the heater core can result otherwise.the heater core is mounted on the firewall and the entire dash must be removed to replace it.if you do cahnge it,make sure there is a ground strap added from the heater pipes to ground.it prevents electrolysis from the dissimilar metals.

The year of the vehicle, rusty liquid, and overheating, says your radiator could use a replacement. If it was your water pump, you would have liquid coming out of the water pump itself.
