sounds like water pump going out, look around for coolant leaking, from passg side of motor, near timing belt cover, if so will need t/b replaced w/water pump.

I my 98 zx2 has a loud squeeling (havn't noticed the smell, but I'll check). took it to the dealership for service. they said it was a loose drive shaft and that I shouldn't worry about replacing it and would probably only get 60K more miles out of the car. let me know what else you find.
