Did you bleed the air out of the system? And I hope you're not putting regular water in, that is a no-no, distilled water only, now about your coolant smell. You cannot have a coolant smell without a leek, pull up your mats inside your car and tell me if the floor is wet.

At that mileage it probably needs a valley pan gasket replacement, look under the car at the bell housing, if your leak is there replace the valley pan and inspect/replace the water pump.
