I just rechecked under the hood of the SOUL after about 70 miles of mostly highway driving in 90 degree heat with the a/c.
When I got home, I raised the hood with the engine off. I do not see any signs of of any coolant anywhere. The revovery tank is still on the full mark. It has been right on the money when hot since purchased. The smell is definately on the left side of the car. I cannot smell anything from the cap over to the right side. Only the left side, especially down lower.
If others who are smelling coolant would check the same areas on the cars and try to pinpoint the area of the smell and post it here, I'm sure it will help in diagnosis and repair in the event that a leak is actually discovered. Thanks. Phillip
