My Car Smells Like Syrup. What Is It and What Do I Do?

Everyone loves waking up in the morning to a plate of pancakes and the sweet smell of maple syrup. When it comes to your car, however, it is not so much of a delight.

When coolant leaks, the amount of coolant circulating is at a significant loss. Driving your vehicle with low coolant can be damaging to the condition of yo ... read more
