Ahh the good ol' smell of maple syrup in the morning...wait what?!?


So i've got not leaks that are making it to the ground, and nothing visible under the hood, nor does it smell at all.

In the cabin however, i get a good strong smell which usually dissipates shortly after start up. My temp is fine, heater works, and the smell doesn't get worse when its turned up (hot or cold) and actually smells less when its blowing on high.

Heater core f*cked?

I sure hope not, if a car with just over 20k miles that is parked every winter in a garage has heater core issues already my warm fuzzy American made gusto is gonzo.

I would say heater core. I have done about 4 of them in my shop last year. Don't be suprised when they tell you they have to pull the windshield out. A few of the bolts are not accessible without pulling the windshield out to get to them. And yes, the entire dash comes out as well.

Meh, i'll check it out at some other time, as i said i park it for the winter so i don't use the heater much anyways.

Thanks Chevy Customer Service, the irony had to be when i checked my warranty and it had expired the month before. Guessing i should fear my final payment as well?

I hate to beat a dead horse cause i've probably said this before but its sad that i've had a subaru wrx for 12 years and the only things i've replaced are the brakes and O2 sensors.

When I had my 2010 LS3, I had the same thing. It wasn't the heater core. Turned out to be a coolant fitting. There is a real big coolant fitting driver's side of the block that was ever so slightly loose. The coolant wasn't making it to the ground because it is right over part of the front cradle. Was real hard to spot. Hope it helps.

Thanks Nancygrl, i'll look into that for sure, only thing that tells me its not that is i can't smell "the smell" anywhere but the cabin, when i pop the hood i can sniff everywhere and not a whiff =/

But its worth a check! *crosses fingers*
