Hi all,
Brand new 06 FXT owner. I just hit 500 miles today and decided to be a little more adventurous. I let it spin up to about 4500 RPM once or twice. Anyways, today happened to be the first time I switched off the recycle button on the climate control. Well, when I gave it some gas the car would get a burning smell. The smell can be best described as what a match smells like right after you blow it out. If I turn recycle back on the smell goes away. I also had a sulfur like smell a couple of times. I was just wondering if this is normal.

Thanks,
Dino

It will be gone in a month or so.
At least that's how long it took mine to go away.
