Question about 2000 Chrysler Town & Country
Hi my name is Tom and I can help you.
You are correct about coolant has a sweet smell. It also has a sweet taste. It contains ethylene glycol or propylene glycol both of which are like sugars. A lick on the tung will not harm and can confirm your suspicion that it is coolant.
A hot engine has very little to do with you having or not having coolant in your system. In fact during hard times, I would run the engine with no coolant during the summer with no problems. I would not do it for more than a couple of months because the coolant contains a rust inhibitor and lets the engine run above 212F. BUT IT CAN BE DONE.
A hot engine is much more likely to be a faulty thermostat. Try replacing the thermo and let me know. If you have never done so let me know and we can talk via text or phone. 414-475-5968
