Coolant leak

Is there a culprit leak that may be common on the V-8 2002 LS1 model engines that dealerships don't know about? I smell coolant after driving but no leaks on floor. Had it pressure checked overnight with no leak down at time of coolant change. They could not find any leaks?

Thanks,

RwS

Re: Coolant leak

It's not one of those new coolant scented air fresheners, is it?

Re: Coolant leak

A bad cap can do it. Steam will leave no trail.

Re: Coolant leak

Also take a look at the reservior. If the cap is loose or if there is a minor crack then you'll get the coolant smell from there also and not be able to detect it without a good visual inspection.
