SMELL BURN OIL RATTLING SOUND WHEN DRIVING 30 MPH
My car has 157455 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
The odor of burning oil may be due to an oil leak onto a hot engine part such as the exhaust manifold. If the leak is at the valve cover, distributor o-ring (if equipped) or a like point that is fairly easy to repair. Oil leaking onto a hot engine manifold is a fire hazard. At best, you are left breathing oil fumes in the cabin, as the oil burns off of the manifold. To get the origin of the oil leak pinpointed please request an oil leak diagnostic and the responding certified mechanic will let you know of your repair options and costs. Rattling noises can have numerous causes and your best bet is to have that noise evaluated during the same visit that the mechanic makes to deal with the suspected oil leak.
