Hey guys I have a quick question. I have a 2011 WRX with the mods in my signature. I jumped into it tonight and when I was driving down the street less than a mile from my house I noticed that I had loss heat. Then I noticed the car was overheating. I turned around and went home. In the garage I opened the hood and saw the coolant overflow tank was almost empty and I couldn't find a leak anywhere. Also it smelled strongly of maple syrup (meaning coolant burning somewhere.
I turned it off for 5 mins then turned it back on. The overflow tank didn't change but the heat worked. The car read warm but didn't over heat (at idle). I had been driving the car all day without any issues.
Has this happened to anyone? Ideas? Other things to look for? I worry about a head gasket but its such a new car 20k mi and not beaten.
