Suspect clutch on the way out.
test in a safe place by pulling away with the handbrake on (if handbrake is ok) if car does not stall, stop at once so not to burn up the clutch completely.
if car did not stall is indicates the clutch is worn and needs adjustment or replacement.
if the same smell increases through this it could be an indicator. clutch wear is common if you ride the clutch so between gear changes keep you foot away from the pedal.
usually belt wear is noisy so if there is a lot of noise coming from one of the pullies then this might be the problem.

Old belt, belt misalignment, belt tension incorrect, failing belt tensioner, or bad condenser or alternator not turning correctly.

We were driving in our 1994 Ford Taurus when we smelled burning rubber. We pulled over and saw white smoke coming from under the hood. When we looked under the hood, we could see that a belt was broken. ...


It should be a serpentine belt.Was the belt about 1 inch wide and there are no other belts hooked up when you look under the hood?It connects everything a/c,alternator,power steer,power brakes.If that is the case(1 belt)you will need to contact a Ford dealer or look for a sticker under the hood showing how the belt is routed.Some makers have the sticker,some don't.I don't think my 1995 Ford does though.The belt will be cheaper at a national auto parts store than a dealer if you are going to try to self-repair.Good luck!

I have a 2002 taurus se and the fan belt broke, i replaced it and it broke again, i smell a foul odor coming from the vents


Check for a seized pulley

With the belt removed turn each pulley by hand, they should all move smoothly without barely noticeable play. I suspect that you may find the idler pulley is either locked in position or locks up occasionally. When turning the pulleys try putting some up or down pressure on them.

The smell you are detecting is most likely the smell of the burned belt. They do tend to give off a smell that keep on giving long after the bet is gone.
