Hey guys,

I have a 2013 "QX60" (JX35) and whenever the truck warms up it smell sof coolant / antifreeze outside the car. The hotter the truck gets, the more it smells... I took it into the dealership and they agreed they could smell it, but they said they couldn't find a leak?

Super embarrassing.... This is my first and likely only Infiniti purchase, given this + the CVT transmission judder....


Anyone found the cause of the burning coolant smell?

How many miles do you have on yours? When they get shipped, Infiniti puts a protectant on the engine so that salt does not corrode anything. It will smell like this for about 500 miles. Other than that, I am not sure what it could be without having it here.

Yes I have the same issue it uses coolant and I get a smell when it warms up .Dealer said they could not find it and tried to tell me I was looking at the wrong bottle .I've Ben a certified auto tech for over 34 years I know what I'm looking at and smell .I just made a appointment for Tuesday for that and other issues as far as rear bearing noise sun visors and recalls will repost after my visit

Having this same issue with my 2015 with 20K. Dealer says that Infiniti / Nissan are aware of the issue, but have no resolution? Coolant level is fine, so is temp, so I guess i'm not too concerned.

same exact situation with me. Also 2015, only a few more miles than yours. I notice a distinct smell of warm coolant very plainly when I walk past the front of my car, especially now that warmer weather is (finally) here. I am acutely aware of the smell because we just had a water pump go out on our minivan so I have smelled A LOT of coolant lately LOL but same for me, no leaks, no temp issues, levels in reservoir seem constant, so nothing I am overly worried about. I think it may be a quirk of the car, though not sure why
