I am smelling antifreeze on aluminum (quite noticeable), yet have no leaks.

(2012 Kia Soul)
in Boston, MA on March 19, 2013
any first place to look?, could there be internal cracks in engine with antifreeze and oil mixing? Can i get the oil and antifreeze tested scientifically somewhere? before bringing it to dealer for the go around. Brought up the issue/smell at dealer when oil was being changed, and got the usual brushoff, of we don't see anything. I have had cars with cracked engine blocks(02 corolla), bad head gaskets, dealer warnings on engine blocks(09 civic) so i need to get ahead of the game here if possible, on the kia soul.
