    Burning smell

    Anyone else notice a burning smell coming thru their vents sporadically? It smells like burning wood, and every time I take it to get looked at we cannot replicate the smell... It comes under various conditions, both heater and ac. I have close to 3k miles so it's not "break-in" smell. Any ideas?

    Hmm, then in that case I'm interested in more info about this aswell.. I've have random moments where I can swear I smell a chimney, a very obvious burnt-wood smell, swell but I always assume it's just the way I shifted and that I slipped the clutch too much or something. Since you have an auto, then it clearly isn't the clutch.

    Reading a little bit on google for other cars, the big ones I keep seeing are Catalytic Converter, Clutch,,old/bad intake filter, and wood(chips?)/pine/leaves/animal nest in the heater intake...

    The manual says that if you run it too hard to expect clutch smell with the dct. That said, i only smell it when I run it really hard for a long time lol

    The wood burning smell has been noticed in my Dart Limited Turbo, and correct, only when the turbo is driven hard. The smell lasts for just a few seconds, then disappears. It can also be noticed when exiting the vehicle.

    I have had my Dart Rallye with the 2.0L automatic transmission for 2 weeks, and noticed the 'burning wood' smell from the air vents at the end of my 45 minute commute to work. The fan was on low speed with a/c off and air temp set on cool. I figured it was something outside, but when I got out of the car I didn't smell it anymore. The 1hr drive home at the end of the day was odor free. I didn't think much more of it until this morning when it happened again about 30 minutes into my morning commute. Have any of you had any luck figuring out the source of the smell?

    Used to happen to me when I first got my 2.0 automatic but hasn't happened in a while. Not really sure what it was
