Question about 2004 Chevrolet Malibu
Probably a stinky but almost kinda sweet odor.... right?
That's antifreeze leaking from your heater core. Sometimes leaving the heater off will stop the leak temporarily, but sometimes in November leaving the heater off is not an option, unless you live in Florida. The correct procedure is to replace the core which is a very involved job. The last one I had done required removal of the dash and cost around $500.
You can bypass the heater under the hood but that is only a temporary cure and will disable your heater and then you have two things to fix later, the core and undoing the bypass.
