while doing i accidentally pressed accelerator more than required as a
result smoke and smell came from the bonet of car and i got afraid so
switched off car and after some time turned on and then parked. Can i

So, did you do a good burn-out? Rubber smell? Or did you ride the clutch hard & made her slip? What did it smell like?

That is what i am asking i don't know was it a good burn out or not. It is not smelling like rubber and clutch is not slipping because next day i took the car and clutch was working fine as it was doing before and gears are engaging smoothly but the next day too smell came but was little only.


Well I wasn't there to watch the burnout so I don't know how good it was. Anyway I would just keep an eye on it, sounds like it is probably ok, watch for any wet spots on the floor after parking over-night, keep a eye on oil & coolant levels, And I assume everything is working ok?

Thanks for the answer. Next day as i said i check my car and no oil or coolant was found on the floor where i parked car while after driving a little smell was coming but in that condition too clutch and gears where working well. Well i will be taking my car for a drive tomorrow so lets hope everything works well and no issues are found.
