how often does the warning comes on doing the week or in two weeks? if it was a one time thing or this takes place every 3-5 months i wouldn't worry about it. i will make sure that the radiator cap is on tight. you said that all hose seem to be in good condition i would check the radiator where the cooling fan covers the fins and the water pump because it has a warn hole at the base that will seep out antifreeze when the inside seals are going bad these will cause the smell also.

SOURCE: radiator fluid leak
Do this test, bypass your heater core by removing both hoses and connect them together with a small threaded pipe coupling and then worm gear clamp them on to the coupling. Be sure to mark one of then with a tye wrap so you will know if its top/bottom/left or right. Then run it a few days and routinely check for leaks if there are'nt any more leaks then you either had a small hair line tear or crevice corrosion at one of the hoses at the fire wall or there is a small leak just inside the fire wall on the heater core. When reinstalling the hoses cut a 1/4 of a inch off of them and then reinstall and recheck for the leak. If you still see it then its internal then there is the real pain of changing the heater core. Good Luck :?) DRRXR

I have a 2000 town/country van it leaks antifreeze.the waterpump has been replaced.after a good ride when i park i here a hissing noise from passg side.the car does not run hot what could it be?

If your antifreeze is leaking into your engine oil, it will destroy the engine quickly. Check the level of both. But...you need to get a pressure gauge on it to apply pressure to the cooling system to see where the coolant is going first. White smoke is a sign of coolant in the engine oil.
