So every once in a while, probably a dozen times, over the winter I am idling at a stop light and smell a bad burning smell. It doesnt matter if I have my heat on, or if I switch the temp all the way to cold. It smells like burning rubber or plastic. So far there doesn’t seem to be a common factor involved. Doesn’t matter the temp outside or how long I have been driving the car. Haven’t noticed a loss in fluids, no puddles under my car. And it’s not a sweet antifreeze smell. Help! I have sunk so much money in this car, I hate to just give up, but honestly I am not loving Ford right now.
