I can smell coolant through the vents every time I put my heater or defroster on. I can also smell it outside the car after driving and parking. I have checked the passenger side carpet to see if it's wet thinking maybe the heater core is the problem but it's dry. There is no coolant on the ground under it and no visible leaks from any hoses. The coolant level stays where it's supposed to, I'm stumped. Anybody have any ideas or have these symptoms?
You could still be loosing coolant thru the heater core. And it may or may not leak on the floor. A lot of times it will slowly leak out of the a/c drain and run down the firewall slowly. If your smelling it inside but dont see a leak I would say thats uour answer
I found a crack on the upper right hand corner of my radiator the other day. I was seeing coolant on my a-arms and on my skid and finally found where it is coming from. New radiator only runs like 175 going to have to swap in a new one.

I wouldn't use any of those leak sealers and risk clogging things up, especially since you have the new rad in there. If its not too terrible to live with a little longer you will be able to get by without heat soon, then just bypass the heater core and you'll have a few months stink free to get it done. If you do it that way though, it will be the quickest summer you ever had and before you know it snow will be coming and you still don't have it done. I've been through that more than once.
