Your heater core is leaking. Maybe not much but enough so you can smell it. Check the passenger side floor. It will show up here. ALSO DONT WASTE TIME WITH STOP LEAK, REPLACE IT. STOP LEAK WILL NOT HELP YOU HERE. ALSO ONE MORE THING, GET A BUNCH OF WINDEX TO CLEAN THE WINDOWS IF IT GETS THAT BAD. IT WILL OMIT A GLAZE ON THE WINDOWS THAT WILL DRIVE YOU NUTS.

What causes your engine to burn antifreeze?

Your car shouldn't "burn" antifreeze. If it actually is "burning" antifreeze then chances are you have a blown/leaking head gasket or possibly a cracked engine block which allows antifreeze to enter the combustion chambers. If your antifreeze is just disappearing then it is probably leaking out from somewhere. Possible leak areas to check out would be the radiator hoses, heater hoses, radiator, water pump, and the heater core. Most of the time if the heater core is leaking you'll be able to smell the antifreeze inside the car while the engine is running and the heater is on.

When you drive up a hill the car smells hot but it's not burning oil what's wrong?

The hill is causing the car to work harder. Heat will increase. One common smell would be a rotton egg or sulpher smell from the catalytic converter. This should not be uncommon or too much of a worry. When the car is cool, check radiator an make sure there is fluid there AND in the reservior. Add antifreeze if neccesary. Be sure the hot smell is not a burning smell. It would be good to check other fluids at this time. Pay attention to any other symptoms. If there is a burning smell, check around the exhaust system for anything against it that may burn. Check transmission fluid level, etc. Are there any other symptoms?

If a 1998 Cavalier is making a noise almost like a knife being sharped by a sand belt and you smell something like maple syrup at lower speeds could it be your transmission or a converter?

I would guess that this is most probably the transmission. The maples smell is the transmission fluid. It has a sweet smell. The grinding could be that the gears are off. When was the last time the timing belt was changed? I'd get it into a tranny shop and have them take alook as well. I don't recommend changing or adding more tranny fluid till then. You make make the situation worse.AnswerSyrupy smell could also be antifreeze. Bad water pump maybe bearings are grinding. AnswerMaple syrup smell is usually antifreeze. The grating noise points to the water pump (the name "water pump" is a misnomer because it actually cirulates your antifreeze/coolant). Listen near the serpentine belt, if it is louder there, then it is very likely the water pump.

Why you smell radiator fluid?

If you are smelling the sweet but unpleasant aroma of antifreeze, your vehicle is leaking it somewhere. A lot of the time the culprit is the water pump. They have a weep hole and when the bearing starts to fail it will begging leaking from this hole. I would start by getting myself a flashlight and start scanning your engine's water hoses for a leak. Check the mail hoses going to/from the radiator as well as the heater hoses leading to the firewall. Do you smell the antifreeze odor INSIDE the car? If so, it could be your heater core that's failing.
