If it smells like sulpher or burnt eggs, it is the catalytic converter. Otherwise there may be something toucing something that is getting burnt. Look around exhaust especially. Also, I am giving you walk through diagnostics for situations like yours. I am not sure if they apply as it might not be what you are describing, but it can't hurt. Just follow the links below.
