Have a coolant smell after driving my 2001 corvette. Just had water pump replaced and mechanic pressure tested it and checked all hoses. No leaks anywhere and no loss of coolant .

hose leak
by: Anonymous

Upper Rad hose. Just did mine. Took forever to find because the leak was so small. Mine was rubbing the hose just under it on the Rad side of the hose

You might have a small leak or a hose leak when your cars temp gets up to temp.It might be pushing
coolant back into the over flow tank when it.s warm
and push fumes out the vent cap.Watch your temp and see if it's happening when gets warm.Good luck.

Heater core

Is there a leak on the passenger' s side floor
It could be a heater core which rusts up and gets blocked.
Big job to replace.
