Eddie Carrara

It is a 2006 Suzuki Swift VXi(Petrol) 1.3

What’s the issue?

Whenever I try to accelerate quickly on my car, I get a faint to moderate burning smell in my car. I have shown this to the authorized service center folks. They recommended a replacement of the clutch assembly as it was worn out and was getting weaker and hence the smell. Now I have gone ahead with their advice and the clutch assembly was replaced. The acceleration of the car seems better but, the burning smell is reoccurring. Now, this is an intermittent issue, and seems to come up after driving for a few minutes. 5-10. And when this happens the car seems to drag. I can feel the pressure on the engine. But the clutch does not slip for sure.

What have I tried?

Clutch assembly replaced(pressure plate, flywheel, releaser bearing, cable).
Throttle body cleaned.
All car fluids/oils changed.

Any help on this would be appreciated.
