Anyone else experience a burning smell after hard acceleration?

Hey

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.

I have the same, but not a burning smell. More like a hot oil smell. Happen when I climb a steep hill or accelerate hard a few time.

My friends are laughing about it, but what can I do.. I still pass them with a kia :p
