Head gasket obviously a problem at about 125,000 miles - rapid overheating and a strong smell. It may have been failing much earlier because that "sweet smell" was present for a very long time - as early as 40,000 miles. we always had it serviced at the Subarau dealer so I always assumed that the specified coolant additive was used.
