A WEIRD ODOR...

2003 Pontiac Grand Am

I have a 2003 pontiac grand am, lately I have been smelling a strong odor inside my car, it kind of smells like syrup, when I turn on the heater, when the heater is off or a/c sometimes you can smell it but it is really faint, sometimes you can not ever smell it at all, and I just wanted to know where that smell is coming from and if it can get fixed?

Check the heater core for leaks. It sounds like you are smelling coolant that would be stronger when the heater is on.
