SOURCE: I have a 2002 hundai

the sweet smell is the motor burning off the residual coolant on the components that got sprayed with coolant.if the car got overheated enough it may have damaged the head gasket and is now burning oil due to the over heating.or there is a mechanical problem due to the overheating(ring problem,valve problem,etc.)if its burning oil then it can cause an 02 problem as the sensor will get coated with what ever is coming out of the exhaust.the heat sensor is part of the 02 sensor that warms the sensor up so the computer will go into closed loop sooner and help with fuel mileage.

Coolant not staying, smoke and smell for the exhaust jeep liberty 2002


Borrow a radiator test kit from autozone or buy one fro harbor freight. Pump it up to around 18psi to See if it holds for about an hour. If not you probably have a blown headgasket. If its white smoke...its your coolant being burned in the cylinder and vaped out your exhoust..

I have white smoke coming from radiator - minus temp outside - no warning lights on - no smell - Audi TT


Could be just the heat off the hot radiator in a minus temp environment. Just like your breath outside on a cold morning?

However if you doubt that is the case then try to see where exactly the smoke is coming from (Mind not to burn yourself). Maybe a leaking Rad hose/cap?

Hope this helps

We have a 2003 gmc Envoy V6 4X4 Automatic has 108000 miles on it i see that the hose was replaced going to the radiator we smell antifreese under the hood and having to put anti freeze in the over flow...


Well, the fluid from the radiator could be evaporating. Is the upper hose solid when you shut it off?

If you 'smell' antifreeze there 'is' a leak.

Is the fluid 50/50 strength antifreeze to water?

Usually, if there is a leak, it will drip to the ground or come out of the tailpipe (in the case of a bad head gasket).

It is not unusual to have a car with 108,000 mi. to have a leak somewhere.

Keep looking and topping off the fluid.
