Coolant Smell

Hey All,

Getting a faint coolant smell after spirited driving. No lights/errors, just a faint smell. No leaks under the car either. Don't appear to be loosing coolant, or at least not so much/fast it's impacting the level. Oil and coolant appear normal, no milkshake or cloudiness.

Any 'usual suspects' to look out for?

pinhole leak or crack on radiator and coolant is burned off as it leaks...pressure test segments of the cooling system...

Thanks much, will try and see if I can locate it using a 'rented' pressure tester.

Thanks for checking in and apologies for the late reply as I've had a few other diy items ahead of this one.

Hope to tackle this next weekend along with a brake job.
