smell of antifreeze indicates a leak somewhere. If the coolant level is low due to the leak, the temp will get high and eventually overheat. Look around for the leak. Could be small and evaporating on the exhaust, just enough for the vent to bring it into the cabin. You can perform a pressure test to find it faster.
