2015 Forte SX Smell

Anyone else experience a burning smell after hard acceleration?

The sky is not a limit. Rather, it's an invitation... to ride and discover all that lies beneath the clouds.

I had 45K on mine before I traded but never had a smell, the one thing I would say I would run it hard several time a week.
Some people never really get on the gas but once in awhile and that's when buildup tends to happened.

Example - my grandfather called me over said this car was running really rough missing smelled all kinds of stuff .
As soon as I got it out on the interstate put the hammer down blew it out it started to run fine.

These cars need to be ran hard at times.
