I would burn off coolant. i could smell it at idle or after i drove walking around my hood . the overflow tank would always be way low and the radiator would be low. i have never had a problem with it overheating though. My question is, is it just in need of new radiator and a flush or something else? kinda nervous about horror stories about head gaskets and stuff but i dont see anything wrong with the oil or leaking anywhere else. i am pretty sure im just smelling the coolant burning off from the hole. when i got my oil changed the guy didnt know i had a leak but saw i was pretty low and said he though it was holding to much pressure or somewthing.


Side note haha. My AC is not cold. not sure if i have a leak or its just low on coolant and can do a recharge. when i run it when its hot out i get a ton of water dripping on the ground i know this is normal when it actually runs colt but it never does.
Yes, you need a new radiator. Don't spend the time or money trying to mickey mouse it. Just get a new one installed.

As far as your A/C not blowing cold, sounds like the condenser is condensing, but your not getting any cold air. I'd have a qualified A/C shop check it out 1) for pressure and 2) for a bad expansion valve. It may be clogged which would cause high pressure but no cold air.
