confused Burnt antifreeze smell

Have a F250. While towning our toyhauler a few weeks ago we started to smell burning antifreeze and lose power. We got it to the dealer and they replaced the head gasket. Well...we just used the truck again this weekend to tow the toyhauler again and we are still smelling the burning antifreeze. Any thoughts on what the problem might be?

Re: Burnt antifreeze smell

They might have spilled antifreeze on the engine block, but that would dissipate within' a few hours of consistent running. Make sure that the anti freeze level isn't dropping. Worst case scenario is the heater core is on its way out. You'll know when it's going to die when you see white smoke coming out of the vents.
