I have a 92 deville and i had the coolant system flushed and now i smell coolant outside of the car, after reading some posts i read that maybee i should not have had it flushed?? The shop told me it was coolant that spilled. Could anything real bad have happend with the flushing?

To rule out the spillage issue, hose down the entire engine compartment very well. Do not use a high pressure stream of water. Volume is your friend here. Coolant that is left to evaporate on it's own, can take a long time before the odor goes away. By rinsing, you will remove almost all of the residual coolant, and the odor will go away much faster.
