Burning coolant smell

Terrible coolant smell. Overflow tank (if filled) will fall to just over an inch in the bottom with a couple of days of driving. Average drive is 7-10 miles. Never any puddles under car so likely burning off in the engine but can't find leak. Any suggestions? Engine is mostly stock.

Check the intake under the tstat look with a flashlight see if there's any coolant in the valley beneath the intake

Also, check the passenger side footwell and see if the carpet is damp, or any other evidence of coolant leaking from the HVAC box underneath the dashboard.

Check your exhaust. Could be a leaking head gasket IMO.
