My 2005 malibu classic smells like buring plastic. I checked under the car to see if there was a plastic bag stuck, but there wasn't. I cant figure out what its is. Please help!

Check under the dash and under the hood, any wiring or connectors melted? I wouldn't drive it till you find the issue.

Another thing to look at is look under the car and make sure you didn't run over a plastic shopping bag that would leave it melted to the catalytic converter.
