Working with friends 06 Impala. There is a sweet smell coming from the vents at times when A/C is on. I know this usually indicates a faulty heater core, but I checked the floorboard carpet and felt no dampness this morning. Checked for visible leaks, and saw nothing. Didn't have a pressure tester available for more in depth check. Also when I pulled the pressure cap, it was gunked up with an orange gritty substance, which was really thick. I actually pulled a big ball of it out, so radiator definitely needs to be flushed. Even though I did not feel dampness I still believe the smell could be caused by a defective heater core which caused corroded fluid. Or corroded fluid caused defective core. Are there any other possibilities? The only thing that has me questioning is the lack of wetness on floor. Also tried to check for electrolysis with no indication. I am not sure of the accuracy of the cheap multi meter I was using either. Any ideas or suggestions or even a comformation of my heater core guess would be appreciated.

It went through standing water during storm it it a grounding issue n where r the wires for the sending unit on the engine

it also shakes while in cruz control but not as much while using the gas petal

It will only move a short distance if it is turned off then back on. then will not move in any gear.

My odometer and gear shift lights do not work at all during the day but works at night sometimes. I'm thinking it may be a loose connection, only because if it doesn't light up at night and I hit the top of the cluster panel above steering column it will light up. Is there an easy fix for this I have seen several others with the same issue?

Check engine light came one. Trusted mechanic said error read out was vapor canister vent solenoid. Replaced for a couple hundred bucks. Two weeks later, check engine light on. This time error read out is fuel tank pressure sensor. 400 plus buck for repair. Less than 100 miles later the light is on again. Anybody else reporting unreliable check engine light readings. My gut feeling is that these things should not be failing this quickly in sequence.
