Update. The reason the coolant level was going down and the smell was noticed was because the hose from the tank to the bottom of the radiator had a pinhole leak. The service advisor basically said 'how did you notice that small of a leak?' I've owned almost 40 cars in my life - about 50% shouldn't have been on the road. '78 Dodge aspen wagons, '70 Fords with no brakes, plenty of rusty Subarus, VW beetles. I check ALL FLUIDS almost everyday. I am scared of breaking down with the kids in the car. I had the spark plugs replaced too. Total was $275.00. Just turned 201,000 miles.
