Smell burning oil and antifreeze. No oil on ground but sometimes a very small puddle of antifreeze.

Also have rattling sound which I was told might be water pump bearings.

Obtain a loan free radiator pressure tester from the local auto parts stores such as Autozone, O'Reilly or PepBoys. Follow their instructions and pump it an adequate air pressure 12 -15 psi or the allowances on the radiator cap. Observe the leaks and perform the repair.
Note: do not OVER-PRESSURE than the pressure allowed in the radiator cap.

Do the pressure test when the engine is cold.
