I detect a burning smell from the engine of my car.
This vehicle does not tend to have many issues with burning smells coming from the engine. The main one that I run across is oil burning on the engine. This is typically caused by an oil filter or oil plug that was not tightened down all of the way or if some oil was spilled when the oil was lasted added then this can occur also. I would typically get the car in the air and see if there is any evidence of oil on the engine and then identify where it is leaking from. If you are looking to have this done, consider YourMechanic, as a certified mechanic can come to your home or office to diagnose the cause of the burning smell.
