    Antifreeze smell

    I’ve had that smell for 37,000 miles. Over 8,500 towing, often in 105+ temps and 6% grades. No leaks, no overheating, no lost coolant. Dealer says they’ve never seen it before, but smell it too. New radiator caps don’t help.

    Antifreeze smell

    I’ve had that sound. It sounds like a vacuum leak from the heat/AC system. It’s not. Crazy as at sounds, the dealer replaced the alternator and that fixed the problem. I can’t see how the alt can make a noise like that AFTER the engine shuts off, but the sound has been gone for over a month now.

    Loose front suspension/tire wear

    Antifreeze smell

    Steveved, Did the the radiator cap help? The dealer replaced mine and it made no difference. At the same time, I never had an over heating problem, and I’ve seen coolant temps over 230 degrees towing the Airstream up 6% grades when it’s 110 outside so I had my doubts that was the problem. my...

    Antifreeze smell

    I had the same smell for a while now. at 35,000 miles I took it to the dealer to have it looked at. They replaced the radiator cap and pressure tested it and it held pressure for hours. i Noticed the smell again 200 miles later.....
