    Sounds like an oil leak. Let the car warm up then look under the hood around the exhaust system to see if oil is dripping on the manifold or headers. This is what the burning smell is.

Their must be some oil stored somewhere and it is dripping on your exhaust manifold,but never pressure wash your engine, could cause worse problems,in time the smell will go away,just be patient.It will burn off in time.

Smoke smells when ac on nissan sentra


The speed control of your fan has resisters that are in the venting system to blow air on them to keep them cool. If they overheat and or burn you will lose your low and medium speeds of the fan. If you run the fan at full see if the smell goes away. Your engine could be burning oil on the outside of the engine block, make sure that the weatherstrip where your hood meets the fresh air intake grill is sealing tight.

Oil leaking on exhaust manifold and smoking on 1998 nissan altima 2.4


You need to find out just were the oil is leaking from to start with .I have just done my Mercedes with the same problem valve cover gasket was leaking .Oil was leaking down the side and on the plugs that are hot ,, so it burns off the oil ,this is what you can smell. If other items are doing the same you will need to do that part as well..The breather system may be blocked up also if it is not breathing oil will build up . Good luck

Valve train noise, engine oil loss, no leak


It is burning the oil,and it is not noticable ,and the oil pump is either weak,or the cam/crank,rod bearings are worn,and the pressure does not make it up yo the valve train.
