I previously asked this question Can flooring accelarator damage car in any way? and it seemed people were saying it will wear parts out, but over time i.e. not in a week or month.
I have been flooring for the past week often and now I'm getting burning smells and it seems the engine is now over reving whenever I floor the accelerator. I think something been damaged. Basically when I floor now it can start to rev abnormally i.e. it sounds like it's over reving and then a burning smell comes too.
I think it's related to the constant flooring but i didn't think a problem would happen in a coupe of days.
I wondered what it could be. I suspect the gear hasn't always been going into place i.e. not completely but still quite a bit and I also consider that maybe I dont always have the clutch pressed fully down but then it mostly is.
However when i used to drive normally I suppose I still had the same clutch and gear changing habits and there was no problem at the time.
I may have over revved in gear one at times over these days but maybe only a few times.
It seems the constant flooring is the cause since if i hadn't done that I don't think I'd be posting this question. I've stopped flooring since I know it will cause an over revving sound and burning smell. I really have to build up slowy to avoid it now.
Do you know what might have gone wrong and what are the possible causes?
EDIT: The vehicle in question is a Hyundai coupe 2006 (mentioned in the previous question).
