Electrical burning smell and other strangeness help needed!
Alright, these may or may not be related...
When I purchased the jeep, I noticed that the gas pedal was difficult to depress and despite being powered by a small block v-8 the jeep seemed to pig around in the low gears (I've got an automatic trans). However a few days ago I noticed that the pedal suddenly seemed freer, everything was more responsive and the trans seems to be shifting "harder" if that makes any sense at all. It seems a bit jumpy, but accelerates much more smoothly than before. Downshifting while going slow seems a bit clunkier. Generally, I'd say that the performance is nicer. No appreciable difference in engine or trans temp. Thoughts?
Onto the strange smell: Coming home tonight I noticed a very pungent smell in the cabin, suspect electrical. Possibly the lighting contactor. anyway to test this other than turning things on an off and sniffing?
