Hey guys. Hope everyone is doing well. So I have been doing some reading on old posts regarding coolant smell and have done some investigating. Car is a 2015 Challenger Hellcat. The car has a little over 30,000 miles. I smell coolant from the front of the car when it’s at driving temps. I have been under the car looking for leaks and can’t find anything. Doesn’t seem to be losing coolant as far as I can tell. I also used a pressure tester and pumped the system up to about 16 psi and it didn’t lose pressure. Maybe I am being over cautious I dont know. I’m nervous to drive the car right now because I don’t want to mess anything up. I drove the car about 35 miles the other day and it even looked like there was some steam coming from the drivers side vent on the hood. This is when I began investigating. Could it just be the cap on the coolant tank? I was going to replace that and see if it went away. That would be great if that was the problem. I know there are older threads on this, which I have read. Just wanted to see if there was any new information on this or if this is still an issue on newer cars. I appreciate the help. Thanks.
