Question about 1993 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera
The rubber smell is coming from all of your hoses and burning coolant. I would replace the thermostat, check the water pump, and the radiator for leaks.

I am not really sure what your problem is but if you have over sized tires on the car when you turn you could be getting this smell or someone changed the oil in the car they got a lot of oil in the frame and while driving it is getting on the drive belt and that will also give off a burning rubber smell

Diagnosing this will be subject to a process of elimination. It could be the radio, blower motor or any other accessory particularly ones with moving parts; Try switching those off and try to note when this problem occurs and what is on/whatyou are doing. Something is getting hot causing the smell so it will be a situation where the accessory will have to run a while before doing it. It is a possibility that there is an electical curcuit overheating, but less likely. Lets rule out accessories first and give us an update. GL

Generally that smell is caused by an oil leak that is getting on either the exhaust pipe or manifold (doesn't take much to smell). As far as bottle getting low, I've got a 93 that never stays full but only needs coolant in the radiator about once every two months. Been like that for two or three years and has never overheated. I'm sure there is a small leak somewhere, but I'm not driving myself crazy looking for it. Check all hose connections, and look on the ground after being parked overnight...If it's leaking, something will show up. But if the radiator is staying full, just check it when checking oil level.
