got a new smell from caddy today :mad: smells like coolant. The screen says to check the coolant level but its good. No drips on the groung that i could see but underhood the smell is still there... and when it got to the dealer, of course its Memorial Day weekend and no-one is around to look at it. So now i get to drive a g6 Puntiac. power?handling?comfort?class? ugh!

Don't have the V, but I had the same thing happen and had to have a new water pump installed at 37K. My service advisor said they were seeing some bad water heater valves which would diagnoss the same way. Good Luck.
