    That smell is your worn out d15 telling you to stop driving like an asshole.



    Most likely you are burning oil or coolant. Monitor the fluid levels, and look for blue, black, or white smoke out the back.

    Ha ha ha! your 16 and driving at 105 mph?? ha ha wow I hope when you kill yourself you only kill yourself and not a family of 4 just trying to get a bite to eat.

    If you want to drive fast take it to the track.

    Keep an eye on the water. Burning coolant can have a sweet smell to it.

    Either some hose is leaking, or you are burning it. If you are burning coolant, that usually means your head gasket is blown or on it's way out. Just keep monitoring the coolant level. If the car starts to overheat and/or coolant and oil starts mixing, then you need to take care of it ASAP.

    you can tell by looking at it. oil and water don't mix very well. to fix it you will likely have to change the head gasket. This isn't too tough on a d series.
