Re: Burning Smell

is your lude 5spd? could be your clutch. are you getting any smoke? next time it happens pull over and look around and see if you don't see anything. look for coolant leaks leaking onto the engine/tranny. look for significant oil leaks that leak onto the exhaust manifold. it could be a lot of things. you need to get under the car or under the hood and inspect. thats the only way you're gonna find out.

Re: Burning Smell

Is the burning smell sweet, kinds fishy smelling, funky (I have no idea what to call a burning brake smell), or oil like?
