I own a 2004 Dodge Ram 1500. After the truck is warmed up I can smell antifreeze in the front of the truck. There are no visible leaks in the engine bay or on the ground. The oil looks fine and I don't smell anything inside the cab. The exhaust has no white steam or smell either.

I took the truck into the shop where I had it pressure tested and it held pressure for 30 minutes with no signs of leaks. What could be causing this smell? I tow a travel trailer and a boat in the summers, so I need to get this figured out. Thanks.

I can only imagine that it is a very minor leak, if you can smell it, it will be leaking, what pressure did they test at and was the engine hot?
