Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer


Not overheating yet, coolant smell inside means a leaking heater core, it may not be leaking enough to show yet, but it will, and this can cause an air pocket in the cooling system, and if it happens in just the right spot the engine will overheat and the gauge will not show it. So get it fixed now and pay a little or wait and pay a lot more.
