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. A syrupy scent in your vehicle is a huge indicator of a car issue. If you catch yourself smelling syrup, there's a strong likelihood that you've got a coolant leak

 

Coolant, also known as antifreeze, has an essential job when it comes to your vehicle. It regulates the engine's temperature to avoid overheating and acts as a temperature transferer to provide heat to your cabin heating and defrosting systems. Additionally, it can also prevent corrosion. The coolant travels throughout the engine, hoses, radiator, and heater core

 

The smell of maple syrup signifies that coolant is leaking within one of those places in your vehicle. 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 your car, mainly because it may result in engine overheating. When an engine overheats, irreversible harm can occur, and your engine may need repairs to return back to normal. 

 

As soon as you catch this scent, be sure to bring your car to the experts here at City Garage. We promise to perform a full inspection of the cooling system to find the leak and quickly repair it. Of course, our team of experts can also evaluate any damage caused within the system. The sooner you take care of the problem, the healthier your vehicle will be. So give us a call or stop by our shop today!
