Question about 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe
I just recently had the fuel pressure regulator replaced 3 days ago at the dealer, well on my way home from work today I could smell a rubber burning type smell. Any ideas if it one of my belts going and to get the this regulator, do they have to move and detach any of my belts to get to it as I am unsure where it is located in the engine. I am scared to death to drive it in fear it is the timing belt because I am aware of what happens to those if they break on you. Your car is gone.
Any ideas of what it is and do you think it is safe to drive it to the dealer? Thanks.
The burning smell will be the new gasket for the regulator it is perfectly normal for this to be occuring

The burning smell could be due to gas leakage in the engine compartment. The gas smell is being sucked into the fresh air intake of the air conditioner. It can be avoided by checking either fuel pressure regulator or fuel injector.
