just bought 1989 535ia with 63k miles.car had its radiator and fan clutch replaced 2k miles ago "due to overhating problem" according to service records.I turned on heater today for first time and a strong oder of burnt coolant fills the cockpit.I ran heater for 1/2 hour but find no leakge into front seat wells on either side of transmission hump.also looked under hood where hoses enter firewall and still no sign of leakage.Any suggestions or shared expierences would be appreciated.I dont want to be raped by local mechanics to fix problem.
