Question about 1998 Volkswagen Jetta
My Jetta has a foul smell that comes inside through the vent whether is the heat or the cool air. Also when I open the hood I can smell it. Seems to me it's the antifrezze, but it's not losing coolant, at least not since I got it flushed and replaced a broken hose. Curiously, when I got it from the mechanic, after he fixed the hose, it was not smelling for a couple of days. but then the smell returned. I checked the exhaust pipe to see if any white smoke is coming, but non is. I don't see any other external leak, but I'm afraid it might be internal. no check engine light comes on either. Any ideas as to what might be going on?

it sounds like u might have a heater core leak, did they check that? it only takes a tiny bit of coolant evaporating from the heater core to really smell.
