Hello...welcome and thank you for using justanswer.

As the first step , check the AC compressor serpentine belt , make sure it is in place.

Check all the pulleys that share the AC compressor belt ,make sure they all spin with engine running.

The possibilities are ...sized pulley ,sized AC compressor,worn out AC belt .

The smell is most likely from the serpentine belt or the AC compressor clutch.

Did you also notice any smoke coming out from under the hood ?

Good luck.

Let me know.

Thank you.
