I recently changed the thermostat on my 03 grand caravan (3.8). I am now getting the smell you get when coolant gets on the manifold. My wife is also reporting steam/smoke coming from the engine along w/ this smell. Radiator is complete full when cap is removed. Car is NOT running hot. Where do I look?

If you just replaced the thermostat, recheck your work. Check to make sure the housing isn't leaking and the hoses are tight and not leaking.

Let me know what you find.
