View Full Version : Weird burning smell

Just wanted to see if any of you might have any clue what to check here. I'm getting this weird "burning" smell. The smell comes and goes.. It's not strong, but noticeable at times. I can usually notice it outside of the car and inside while driving with the heat on. I've popped the hood and you can kind of smell it, but I don't see any smoke or anything burning. I really have no clue what it might be, other then maybe some oil burning somewhere. I got an oil change last week, but I don't see any oil on the manifold. I also got new tires put on last Friday, so I'm not sure if thats letting off a strange smell. If someone has any ideas what to check, that'd be great!

look under your car to see if a plastic bag is on your cat.
