Re: Sweet sweet smell
Welcome! Glad to hear you're using the factory clamps.
With the info about the coolant pressure test kit (system cold), that tips me even more to the idea of a pressure created pinhole leak above and beyond the 16 psi of the cold test. At temp and pressure, it's going to be steam and not "water" like dripping from a faulty water pump. Most likely it's not even leaving any residue making it that much harder to visually detect. I would not
recommend trying to find it by hand. Go with the hose change and smell what happens.
