I've got the maple syrup smell coming from my vents. I was told that if I smelled it from the inside of my car, its the heater core, and if I smell it from the outside, its the radiator. I was just looking for a second opinion and also some tips on how to fix it. Thanks.

Check for coolant leaks...does the heat actually work?

Watch the temp...check the rad level/burp tank etc...

Also, I vote pancakes.

My temp has never gone above 190. It averages like 184. And my coolant wasn't at the fill line when I bought it. But I've filled it up to the fill line and I keep checking to see if the level has gone down before I drive it. So far so good. And I haven't actually had the heat on. Just the air.

Try the heat.

Most of the time if the core is clogged up le car won't get le hawt.

Maybe what you smell is fungi build-up on your A/C core. But that has more of a ballerina little feet smell, not very sweet. Keep an eye on it!!!
