If you are smelling the sweet but unpleasant aroma of antifreeze, your vehicle is leaking it somewhere. A lot of the time the culprit is the water pump. They have a weep hole and when the bearing starts to fail it will begging leaking from this hole.
I would start by getting myself a flashlight and start scanning your engine's water hoses for a leak. Check the mail hoses going to/from the radiator as well as the heater hoses leading to the firewall. Do you smell the antifreeze odor INSIDE the car? If so, it could be your heater core that's failing.
Bad radiator fluid.
Do it when the car is cold if the radiator is hot fluid may be forced out when you take off the cap.
Theres a leak. Probably a hose but could be radiator or heater core, water pump or engine core plug
Your car will leak anti-freeze/coolant. If you run out of fluid in your radiator then your car will overheat in a short period and cause much more damage. Fix your radiator!
Antifreeze is green in color and is leaking from your radiator .
heater core is going bad.
Unless your radiator has a leak, the radiator fluid stays in the radiator.
Is the colour of the fluid green? or red, or does it smell? that's a definite sign that radiator coolant is finding its way onto your floor from the radiator, and if you let it continue and don't top up the radiator fluid inside the engine bay, your engine will overheat and die. Sounds to me like a heater radiator leak, don't drive the car until you are regularly checking the level of the fluid in the radiator and get it to a mechanic to swap that radiator out for a new one. and in addition get the mechanic to flush out the radiator fluid for new stuff.
Where is the radiator to put fluid for 2001 jetta?
Carbon monoxide has no smell.
you have to put the radiator fluid in the overflow. This is the only way.

Cracked radiator end caps since the tranny fluid runs goes threw the caps for cooling that is the only way tranny fluid can get in the radiator
