Is the overflow filled up such that is the hotter weather you could be blowing a little out (because it was slightly overfilled when the radiator was replaced) and then is dry by the time you get home and check?Beginning yesterday, I can detect the slight smell of coolant. Nothing is pooling and there is no evidence of a leak, but I smell what I smell. Time for a trip back to the service department?
What say you?

Thanks! Good thinking. I will check that out. I know it's not coming from the car in front of me. It gets worse when I pull into my garage and I can smell it coming through the AC vents.Is the overflow filled up such that is the hotter weather you could be blowing a little out (because it was slightly overfilled when the radiator was replaced) and then is dry by the time you get home and check?
Where you able to see coolant leaking on the garage floor or get just the smell? What were the symptoms?Had mine done about a month ago. Took dealer about 4 hours. Vin# 3104.
Hmm, it may not be the radiator - it might be the heater core.It gets worse when I pull into my garage and I can smell it coming through the AC vents.
If the odor is as obvious as you say, you may consider it.Thanks Mobius! Should I ground the car until service?
Wow! That is definitely interesting. If the hole were small enough, it could cause the exact symptoms I am having without showing a noticeable loss - and I'm sure you were thinking the same when you posted this. Thanks again and good looking-out! I will notify my Stingray Guy next time I see him.So when I picked up my Vette today, I got to the dealership about 45 minutes before my salesman arrived. I went back to the service area and crawled all over my car. I also had the chance to talk to the Vette mechanics, and I asked the a number of question about my car. One of them mentioned that they have only had one C7 in for warranty work.
The problem with that car was a pinhole leak in a seam weld on the heater core. I thought it was a hell of a coincidence and that you'd find it interesting.
What is the previous digit in the VIN? I am guessing 1, but it could be a 0 or a 2. It will tell us more about when your car was built.New Radiator in my Z51 just put in at 2k miles... small pool in garage every night... VIN .... last 4 digits ... 1594.
