Burning smell

2013 w2k laredo 4x4

So when I am accelerating up an on ramp and have to have the jeep downshift for more power... I get a burning smell through the vents that lasts about a minute..

It's usually when the revs get to about 4k and higher

Any thoughts?

Re: Burning smell

I've got the same prob but only when I take the car off road. The smell is pretty bad and then eventually goes away

Re: Burning smell

I had the same thing last week. Parked in garage and could smell it for a while. A bit like burning rubber. Has not done it since. Did a long run yesterday and did not smell it. It is not burning brake pads as I had that issue at 950km. Car has 1750km now so a bit cautious about a burning smell in a new Laredo.

Re: Burning smell

It almost had a burnt oil smell. My garage stank also. The odd part is that when I opened the hood, I couldn't really smell much. It's mostly through the vents and accumulated after the jeep is parked

Re: Burning smell

I have the V8 and also get this smell from time-to-time under hard acceleration. Could this be related to over-filling at oil changes? Again most of us got bad dipsticks, causing an under-reading at change....would be great is anyone had an input.
