    Bet its the start of egr cooler leak mine done it a few weeks before it dumped all coolant on main road, especially driving up hill. Vauxhall have issued a TSB that saves you alot of dosh, think repair kit is about £40 instead of new cooler at £500

    The burning smell might be antifreeze on exhaust, check right side front of engine for pool of water.
