Question about Ford Cars & Trucks
Sounds like there is an electrical problem. Its probably in the ac / heat system. I would suspect the blower motor resistor or blower motor is going bad.

SOURCE: Burning smell when ac is turn on
well as for the ford man sorry to here that. I am a holden man myself, but it is most likly that your fan switch is on its way out if you have a test light just pop the switch out and see if you have power to your high setting if not replace your switch. And for mgauthier I would suggest you just reroute your overflow pipe so it overflows onto the ground not onto hot metal parts. But you shouldn't have coolant coming out your overflow all the time. As for burning smell it was probably the switch burning out and failing.

I had the same problem in my 98 Dodge Dakota! Replaced the heater core, problem solved. No more funky coolant smell and erie fog coming through my vents. I bought the heater core at rockauto.com online. Have purchased many items now from them. All factory parts so far at half the price of even AutoZone, even with the shipping. Also, you usually have to wait only a couple of days depending on the part and they have EVERYTHING.

If its in the engine compartment there is an antifreeze leak..If it inside the car like like near to the windshield, you have a bad heater core. Good Luck contact me if you need more help.
