Several possibilities; coolant mixture is incorrect (not at recommended 50/50 water and anti-freeze), faulty thermostat, faulty / clogged radiator hoses, faulty water pump, clogged / restricted cooling passages in the engine or radiator, fan belt stretched or slipping.

Overheating is determine by the temperature and temperature guage - not by smell.
