Smell of coolant passenger side of motor

After I shut the truck off I smell a very faint smell of coolant coming from the passenger side of the truck. I can smell it faintly if I stick my head in the front passenger side wheel well. Can't find any coolant on the ground though

Make sure its not blowing out of cap,check the hoses to heater core as well as the heater control valve ( which is on top of valve cover and has a vacuum hose to it depending on model).
I would get out a 7 mm socket or straight screwdriver and snug up all your hose clamps.

Found it! lower radiator coolant hose clamp was loose. It was the only place I never checked (of course that is how it always works!).
