Anybody have a antifreeze smell after shutting hot engine off ? Popped hood to see what type of oil it takes and the smell was there, coolant level was a bit low but not much, engine temps normal, it has 13 K miles on it, will keep a close eye on it.

I have a 2018 Compass Latitude - same thing. When I park, especially inside my garage, I can smell coolant but have not detected any leaks or low coolant level.

Same thing happened with me, similar mileage. I am going to throw some UV dye in there and see what happens.

It seems like no update on the issue. I've noticed this every now and then as well. Mostly when I park in the garage. I popped the hood and looked around, didn't see anything. I'm around 4k miles.

nmarketti - Same smell when I park my 2018 Compass in the garage. No coolant/antifreeze leaks and level is fine. I assume "just letting out some gas" from the coolant recovery cap. One of those Jeep things!
