I sort of know where Poolesville is. Definitely know where Buckeystown is cause a lot of the kids I went to high school with lived there. My grandparents live in Boyds and I know Poolesville isn't too far from there. But definitely don't write the car off yet. It could just be a lot of small things going wrong. We had the same problem with the svt when we first got it. A lot of small problems creating what looked like chaos.

The getting hot could be your fans not working. Ours did the same thing. It was the resistor had gone bad. Throttle sticking could be the throttle getting caught on the intake clamp. That was what was causing ours to stick. Not sure what the burning smell is but sounds like something is rubbing. You'll have to let us know when a good time to come up is. Text Josh or something. He is off work on Sundays and Mondays.
