It sounds like your heater core is bad. the sweet smell is anti-freeze. check on the floor on the passenger side to see if there is anything leaking.

If the heater core has failed it will just leak coolant, you will still have heat as long as the coolant level is good. If you have any coolant on the passenger side floor or a mist on the front windshield when you turn on the defroster. Like Mike said, a sweet smell would indicate a leak.

It could be a bad connection. Make sure the leak is not the cable connections or a hose leak. the leaking fluid may of clogged the draft and prevented it from opening. A grand seems like a lot of money to replace that item. Shop around at good shops to fix it if need be. Go on line and you will find a new heater corps for $58.00. there is also instructions on how to remove and replace it. Save about $942 if you do it yourself. Also check on what the estimated time to replace it is. If a shop charges $100 an hour and it is a two hours job, total cost should be $250?????
