if you smell coolant, check for leaks and check the level in the overflow resivoir....if you notice the level going down, either its leaking out somewhere or being burned....check the spark plugs, if the tips are really white and smell sweet, then you are most likely burning coolant.

my bet would just be a leak dripping on the exhaust.

Coolant level is going down? Car is getting hot fast? Could potentially be a head gasket. Check your oil for coolant and your coolant for oil. Are you getting a lot of white smoke coming out of the exhaust?
