weird smell when heat is on

with it starting to get colder around here in NY ive been using the heat on my bird quite a bit and i didnt notice it at first but one of my friends said that it smelt like maple syrup in my car thought she was going crazy but found out later that it seems to be coming from the heat just wondering if its anything to worry about or if its just a free air freshener for my car

syrup? dude, your gonna have to be more descriptive. coolant i can maybe understand, and in that case you need to replace your hearter core. a whining like a bird chirping or something, that would probably be the blower motor. but syrup? crazy *** yankee...... maybe your heater is so hot its melting some plastic but thats a pretty far fetched theory.

Is it a Log Cabin type of smell or more of an Aunt Jemima smell?
