smoss Posted April 26, 2005 Share Posted April 26, 2005 I've had my LGT limited a few months now. I noticed the other day that under hard accel. and high speed I get a terrible burning smell. It ISN"T the clutch, I know what that smells like. It really smells like the catalytic converter. I never noticed this before, but I have never really pushed the car this hard since I was getting used to it. The first time I thought it was another car. I had to pass a WRX yesterday then he caught up and we got on the highway. I got on the highway, then accelerated up to between 80 and 90 winding out the gears (up to 6k). The burning cat. smell was horrible. I am sure it is my car. Anyone else have this problem? Also, it should be said that I live about 1 mile from work. So sometimes I make very short trips. However, in the last few weeks, I have been driving around to avoid the short trips. Also, I don't notice this smell at all when I just take off fast, or quickly downshift and pass a car. It is only on the highway under high rpms and then high speed. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
