Open the hood and observe the smoke(if any) electrical smell will show a yellowish color with a blue/green/red yellow flame and it moves fast..oil smoke and antifreeze smoke(vapor really) will sort of "steam" off from near the area its leaking from when hot.. brake smell and clutch smell are almost the same since both use like materials for friction..keep an eye on this for potential problems and may need to move the vehicle outside so if it goes up in flame the house wont/grarage whatever//

You have oil leaks getting on the exhaust system, they are getting into the car, have the car checked over to find source of leaks.

SOURCE: Front End has a burning smell.
Any type of burning smell can be a cause for concern. This could be a number of thing. Did they do an oil change when they had the car? It could be a leaking filter. I would not be shy about returning to the place where it was repaired and have it double checked. Don't forget you paid for this work and deserve to have it fixed properly. I hope this helps

if the smell only comes on when the heater is on try pulling the blower motor mice like to build nests in the blower motor housing.

Most likely cause is a leak in the valve cover gasket. Under pressue, a good sized leak will spurt and burn off on the manifuld, causing the smell of burning oil you're getting. This also would cause the presence of oil throughout the engine compartment. Best of luck on your problem.
