Temp Issue

My 2012 Focus SEL auto has a troubling issue that may or not relate
to the overheating issue in this thread.

I purchased it in April and have travelled approx 20 k miles.

At approx 17 k miles, I encountered that sweet coolant smell
eminating from the front of the car after every commute,

The temperature guage never moves from the normal range
and there is no leakage.

I brought the car into the selling dealer.. they agreed there was a strong coolant odor but could only do a visual inspection as they stated" they didn't have the correct Rotunda tool to pressure test the system".

They also said this was a 1st report of this issue and that there were
no Ford Bulletins.

I brought the car in 9 days after the 1st visit and they still have not
received the testing equipment.

The smell continues.

I am very concerned that I'm slowly cooking my engine.
