Engine compartment gas leak. Repair immediately.
**When this suddenly happened to us, my husband found that the oil filler cap had popped off. Luckily it was still under the hood, and as soon as he replaced it, the problem cleared up.
No, they do not. If you smell ammonia it is not coming from the heater unless something has been put inside the heater and is burning.
A burning smell from a car's brakes means that you are braking very hard or there is a electrical short circuit in the car. Another reason for a burning smell may actually be coming from the car's heater.
The burning rubber smell in the tranmisson breaking apart inside.
The belt is burning up and wind is pushing the smell through the air conditioning.
The possible explanation for the smell may be that the heater core in the vehicle has a slight leak, therefore the smell of evaporating antifreeze will come through the vents until it is all dried up. Solution is to take the car to a garage and get the heater core replaced.
Because it is burning.

the heater core may be plugged up
if you smell it inside, it's the heater core it has a leak.

Sounds like your heater has dust bunnies and needs a good cleaning, when dust or fluff heats up it starts to singe or burn causing the burning smell.
A car heater that smells like burning rubber could be an indication of a belt that is slipping. The slipping belt smell can be drawn in from the engine compartment into the passenger cabin.

It could be your heater fan bearing. But more than likely its something in your engine compartment that is making the smell. Such as oil burning on the exhaust or a worn accessory belt.
If you try turn on the heat and a huge cloud of smoke fills your car, or you can smell burning anti-freeze....then you have a busted heater core.
It probably has a leak, possibly from the heater core.
usually you will get antifreeze smell and steam inside coming from defrost
Since this morn my car has started shaking and not functioning properly. I can also smell a burning smell coming through the fans and the boot? Could this be the Exhaust?
Does it smell like burning antifreeze? Usally it means that the heater-core is going bad. If you do not service it it can be a lot worse. You will end up with Anitfreeze all over you passenger side floor board.
