it is normal to smell it a little, especially when engine is hot - as long as you are not leaking, i think you are OkFrostwolf said:Two of our Four xb's have a smell of antifreeze every so often. Anyone else have this issue? It doesn't appear to be a problem other than the odor of coolant. Which doesn't bother me if I know the vehicle normally does this.
:rofl: :lol: :rofl:eviljack said:Nay its hard to descirbe. Its a unique smell. One of those that dosen't smell bad until you smell it leaking out of your car and then you get sick to your stomach. Not because of the smell but because you realized what just happened.

I just dropped my car off today to the dealership for this exact same problem. I tried to describe the smell that it wasn't electrical smelling(like burned brakes) but more like burned toast. Of course they couldn't duplicate the smell, and said it was o.k. I'm about to go back to the dealership to pick up my car and mention to them if it could possibly be a coolant leak. I'll let you know what they say about that.
