Someone plz help! I can smell coolant when i get out my car. The over flow has went down slightly twice over the past 2 months. I had a someone look at it...not a mechanic.. They checked the oil no coolant but the dipstick had a gas smell on it, a couple inches above the bottom/measure part. Car is running fine.. Over the summer when it was hot out and i left the car running the oil light would come on. Any suggestions?

Pop open the coolant tank after you driven for awhile (let it cool down of course) and if it smells like exhaust or gas then it could be your head gasket.
