Hi everyone, when my car is warm I can smell coolant when heaters on. It's usually if I give the car full throttle. Now I've got no wet carpets, no coolant leaks and unless it's a very very small amount then I don't seem to be loosing any coolant attall?

Anyone had this issue before

Hmmm heater matrix weep. Mate has just done his A4 B5... same symptoms. His started leaking badly over about 2 months.

Not sure what else it could be. Keep an eye on the levels in the short term.

Do you think a k seal will sort it

No because it's never fixed any car ever to my knowledge.
If it is the matrix there is no other option than to replace it I'm afraid.
The last time I replaced one (on a focus) i swore it would be the last, it's one of the most knuckle scraping jobs I've ever done. I hope for you sake it's not the matrix
It took my mate the best part of a weekend.
Awful job.
