My car has a coolant smell only during driving and its just a strong whiff that goes away with in 10-15 seconds. The radiator cap ,waterpump and the heater core are all new?

I would have said heater core- Is it possible you got some residue in the ducting when it got changed?

Just cuz there new dont mean they cant leak again,,
Use some water based UV die,,,a good amount of it,,and run the car fro a few days,,then at night in the garage put on your special gogles and use the UV led light to track down any cooling system leaks that will show with the water based UV die in it,,,
UV based water die is a great tool for coolant leaks,,,
so is KY
