Hi!!

If the smell was like burnt plastic it could be due to a short on the wiring. Check cables coming from battery to the alternator and the fuse box, Inspect the wiring of the engine components.

Check oil and water level on engine and radiator.

Try to identifiy where the smell came from and let me know, I would be more able to help if I khow that.

You really should not be guessing here. My first guess is the alternator belt. possibly a pully bearing froze up and the belt was slipping causing you to over heat or possibly the aternator stopped charging and the battery ran down

you really need to have someone hands on, on this one. take it to a shop

we can guess all day and never get it right

    then you have a serious problem going on. If you can't see anything wrong your only choice is to have it towed to a shop. Were not magicians here. As you know alot of times when someone actiually works on cars they get it wrong. There is no way were going to get it right sight unseen

    Is it possible that the engine locked up?

Sounds like you might be burning up your ATF on a long trip. Try installing a transmission cooler and add some lucas oil transmission additive.

Check to see if your ATF smells burned.

Burnt smell from rear wheel well on 99 bravada after driving


Could be a stuck parking brake or a leaking wheel seal letting gear oil onto brakes. look at inside of rear wheels, if you see wet oil on backing plates, it's the seal. and nees to be replaced.

99 bravada sluggish/hesitating while turning right or left


If youre talking about wheel hop when turning at slow speeds with only the info you have provided I would guess it has smart track AWD and this is normal, How ever if you have push button 4x4 controls your front drive axle could be locked in, in that case have a garage check it out...

Rotten egg smell??? Thats smell could be either from a bad 02 senser or a totally clogged catalytic converter...not terribly expensive to replace. As far as the engine shaking, and it not going quick out of the stop light, I'd pull my tranny dipstick and smell the fluid and check for a buring smell and or the color. You want it to be a light red color. You may have an internal transmission issue. You said you got "fluild" out of your tailpipe, was it just water, or was did it have a scent to it. You really should have the car checked out, with those symptoms that you listed you could do more damage by still driving it that way.
