The dash shows a coolant light. It never goes off even if I fill the coolant. I understand this to be a bad sensor in the coolant tank and a sensor is not worth the cost of the tank.

Recently the coolant seems to be disappearing. I cannot locate a leak on the ground and my wife is complaining of a "funny smell" coming from the car.

Is there a way to trace the leak? Is there a way to suss the leak without replacing all the hoses, radiator and coolant tank?

It has been several years since I flushed the system.

They make a tracer that you can add to the coolent. Most repair shops, like Pep Boys can perform this operation.
