smells like anti-freeze no loss of coolant

Well took it to the dealer today for the reflash,and losing 1/16 of an inch of coolant on the degrass bottle over a 2 months time,no psyhicle evidence of it leaking and the smell of anti-freeze when it's hot inside and outside of the cab. The dealer does a pressure test and says it's not leaking anywhere the test is holding pressure they are unsure what is going on does anybody have any past experience with this problem or have any insight on it would be deeply appretiated.

Thanks Chris

not sure if this is your problem but just last saturday my brother had the same problem. It turned out to be his steering gear box. It was fixed under warranty.

make sure it's the seal and not the torque converter itself. hub welds will crack on the torqshift
