Engine Braking Burning Smell

Strong Burning Smell when Engine Braking

Hey Scotty, I have a 2001 Hyundai Tiburon, 142k miles. I use engine braking in 2nd gear when driving down hills however why is there such a strong burning smell? Only happens with engine braking. I check the oil and there is never any loss of oil.

Would the smell be burning transmission fluid or a bad gear?
