well hate to say it, but if you have coolant smell in car its most likely the heater core again.

also check the seals on the back side of hood, there should be a rubber seal so that smells from engine compartment dont get sucked into heating ac inlet along windshield.

Heater core can be fine, but the hoses may have loosened or cracked. You can get a uv kit to track down the leak. go from there on what you to do.
