This could be caused by two things. Your engine could be burning excess oil under strain which smells like burning rubber, and also the belt could be slipping causing the smell. The only other thing is the tires may be slipping if they are worn. This would cause very uneven wear on the tire so the last one would be very obvious.

Burning rubber smell whilst going up hill


This sounds like an oil leak. Look for leaks at valve covers, and other areas above the exhaust. It often is the burning off of this small volume of oil, that makes the smell like you describe. Inspect the whole exhaust...Something is melting, somewhere.

Surging/loss of power up steep hills in Daewoo Lanos 2001


This sounds like you may correct in saying a misfire. this sounds like a bad coil that looses power under a load. Is check engine light on?
If the light is on or not go to an auto parts store like auto zone.At auto zone they will scan the computer free of charge and give you a print out of any codes. the computer will store code or codes when it detects a problem. A bad coil will make it store a code or should.
see if there are any misfire codes, this code will help pin point the bad coil. if there are codes write me back and give me the code. I think this car has coil over plug ignition system. this just means instead of sparkplug wires the coil sits right on the top of the plug.
Also replace spark plugs if it has been a while since they have been replaced. check air filter too. a matter of fact if you have over 70,000 miles on car tune it up. plugs,furl filter if it has one, air filter and pvc valve and clean throtle body.
Okay, just checked it out, this car if a 1.6 engine then does have a coil but not on spark plug, rather coil with sparkplug wires going to plugs. try replacing spark plug wires and plugs first and if problem remains then replace the coil. let me know the results. good day

I have a 99 VW Passat 1.8 and a few days ago and I left my light on over night. Got a jump but the guy reversed the lead on the jumper cables. Immediately afterwards I found that the car no longer goes...


auto or manual?
Either way you need the box repairing or replacing, which ever is cheapest. Gearboxes are not for amateurs and VW are known for gearbox issues.
the battery thing is likely to be coincidental

Burning smell whenever i pull off, go up steep hills or simply reverse up my drive


1) Check the brake pads all round. If a caliper is sticking (not retracting fully) then the pad will remain in contact with the disc rotor and gets very hot giving off burning smells. 2) If you have a manual transmission it could also be that your clutch is at the point of failing. A slipping clutch is indicated in gear the engine races irrespective of the the car accelerating along with a smell of burning.
