Burning coolant has a burnt plastic smell and emits a clear smoke.

White smoke with a kindof 'sweet' smell is coolant, assuming you have the right mix in the radiator. Have you been losing coolant? Are you getting good mileage? Losing oil?

I don't know if anyone else has mentioned this, but if you put your location in your profile, someone in your area may run across this thread and be able to help out in person.
