My car is ravving...

My car is ravving up but is taking awhile to get up to speed. There’s a little smoke and a burnt smell. Also, it dies when I’m idling in drive or reverse

Mechanic's Assistant: How long has this smell been noticeable? Any leaking?

Since Friday and I haven’t notice any leaks

Mechanic's Assistant: What's the make, model, and year of your car?

2016 Jeep Patriot

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else the Patriot Mechanic should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.

There is heat coming from the gearbox and cup holders

Sounds like you have a leak that is burning on the exhaust and you can not see it until it comes out the shifter

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Do you think it's an oil leak or transmission leak
Jeep Mechanic: Kurt Mulling,
 replied 1 month ago

it can be trans fluid leaking on the exhaust on the back of the trans. or coolant as well . So as I cannot see it I would suggest you have it looked at ASAP
