Default Smelling coolant after engine is turned off

I have a 07 Ram 4X4 it smells like coolant after running for a while but I don't see any drips or puddles on the ground. I have checked all the hoses they appear to be okay, looking at the front of the radiator I see only a shiny spot near the top but no coolant visible I have not seen coolant level drop either need help.

Mine was doing that, I eventually found a tiny leak at the thermostat housing. The gaskets on thermostats are kind of cheap.

check your pass side floor board for any dampness for a failing heater core.

Are you smelling it inside or outside? As far as the spot you're seeing run a rag over it to see if it's antifreeze or something else.
