View Full Version : Burning coolant smell
09-01-2006, 09:53 PM
I just replaced my thermostat and I expect to have some coolant burning off since it spilled all over, but its still there even after a good hosing down. I've checked for leaks but haven't found any and the coolant level hasn't noticably dropped since. Also its only coming from the engine compartment and not the exhaust. Any ideas?

Check to make sure there isn't a leak from the thermostat housing.
Check to see if the reservoir has overflowed onto the frame.

let it run for over an hour, keep checking it every so often, but just let it run!
