Burning smell after new radiator installation

Hi - i just had a new radiator put in my 2000 Hyundai Accent after getting a leak in the old one. Today is the first time i've driven any distance, and noticed a strange smell coming from the air vents once it warmed up. When getting home, the smell was quite strong under the hood - like a mild burning. The overheat gauge was only quarter of the way up, and i couldn't see any leaks inside the engine. The coolent levels are good. Could it be just "settling in"!! I certainly hope so!! Thanks in advance!!

I have a 2002 hundai accent , drove car approx 15miles with radiator steaming to shop. replaced radiator. now needs o2 heat sensor and I!m smelling a sweet type coolant smell, but very little and its...

the sweet smell is the motor burning off the residual coolant on the components that got sprayed with coolant.if the car got overheated enough it may have damaged the head gasket and is now burning oil due to the over heating.or there is a mechanical problem due to the overheating(ring problem,valve problem,etc.)if its burning oil then it can cause an 02 problem as the sensor will get coated with what ever is coming out of the exhaust.the heat sensor is part of the 02 sensor that warms the sensor up so the computer will go into closed loop sooner and help with fuel mileage.

Hyundai accent smoke problem

If the valve seal is leaking, the chances are that the valve guides will need to be replaced, maybe not now but soon so you might as well do both. If the valve stems are OK it would pay to reface the valves as well. This will require removing the cylinder head and an engineering works can do the work for you as the seals need to be pressed out and the new ones pressed in again and the head will need to be skimmed.

I am installing a new radiator into a 2000 Hyundai Accent GL

Try this.
If the two hoses are connected to the correct locations on the transmission, take the shorter hose and see which fitting it reaches on the radiator. If it reaches only one, you have the answer.
The radiator is used to cool the transmission fluid.
