SOURCE: its runnining close to hot
Was it smoke, or steam? Sometimes, especially if a vehicle overheats, it will blow a head gasket, or even crack a head. This leads to lots of other problems. But the signs are steam coming from the engine compartment.
Solution: First step; When the engine is cool, after it has been sitting for a while, say an hour or so, remove the coolant cap and fill the radiator, or overflow reservoir while the engine is running To ensure that the system is properly filled and properly functioning. When the engine warms up it will circulate the water that you are putting into the engine and fill the cooling system.
Continue to let the engine run until the vehicle's temperature starts to indicate that the engine is warming up. Continue to watch it for a few minutes to make sure that it doesn't overheat. If it starts to smoke or steam then the problem is larger than just being out of coolant. Cracked heads, and blown head gaskets are sometimes tedious and costly repairs.

now this may be a long shot... but i had a similar problem on my cutlass. but it wasnt wiring...... it was from the tube running from the head of my engine...... the smell and smoke were coming from hot oil coming out of the crank case vent tube and then being sucked into the air inlet for the heater/ ac.
since a electrical wire's protective cover is petroleum based as is oil.... they smell very similar
