Do you have any overheating or running at higher than normal temperatures? If it smells like antifreeze, the only way I know of for that to get into the exhaust is due to a failing head gasket. You can rent a block test kit from your local NAPA or probably most any box auto parts store to test for a blown gasket. Also, have you recently started noticing a loss of antifreeze?

:yeah:

If it smells like anti freeze, you'd better be seated when you hear the price of the repair.

:welcome: Wish it where under better circumstances.
