1967 Chevrolet Camaro - 'King Of The Road'

2002 Ford explorer smells like coolant and loses water/ coolant. There are no external leaks. Intake manifold gasket?

The intake could be one issue. Could also be the heater core or heater hoses. Check your passenger floor board for wetness and also look in the area where the hoses connect to the heater core and see if there is any rust looking discoloration.
