Got a smell like a dead animal throught the AC and from the engine bay of my MT after doing some this offroading this morning. No dead animals found.in the engine bay. Smell disappared after an hour. Could this be a burnt clutch? I always thought burnt clutch was more of a burning rubber smell. Thanks.

You will never forget burnt clutch scent. It smells like death and brake linings is the best way to explain it but it’s possible it was the clutch or hopefully just some murky water burning off the exhaust.

Binding brake pads and a hot clutch smell of something I learned over 30 years. Ferodo.

Ferodo

As Monte intimates above it's a smell you won't forget. I noticed it a while back when trying to recover another vehicle. No option but to stop immediately and let the Daddy Jeep take over.
