Carbon monoxide has no smell.

The smell of antifreeze is very strong and distinct, it does not take much of a leak to smell it. The radiator could still be full and have a small leak. I would check for antifreeze dripping onto the exhaust or on the engine block because when it is hot the smell is much more noticeable from the fumes.

If the radiator was not fitted in properly or the pipes were not attached correctly, the radiator would leak.

Pull it out, take it to a radiator shop and have them do it. Or what I would do , is just replace it with a new aftermakret one.
