- A week ago I had the same problem. I took it to two places before they discovered the problem: I had a plastic bag melting on my muffler. I had picked it up while driving and it was slowly burning over the last week. Something to mention if you take the car in to get looked at. well it seems like it could be a few things 1. leaking valve cover gasket 2. oil pan is damaged 3. head gasket. i am gonna go with valve cover gasket for sure I just had that same problem Plugged or damaged pcv valve; Loose or damaged oil drain plug; Worn or broken piston rings. u have an oil leak. the leaking oil is blowing or running onto hot parts in vehicle whether it be the exhaust manifold(leaking valve cover gasket)or the exhaust pie, leaks from anywhere lower than exhaust manifold will run down and blow back and usually burn on lower parts of exhaust system
My new car did not smell like burning rubber! When I had a gate smelling like burning rubber, a rubber belt was stuck and instead of turning with a piece of machinery, was caught. I would check the belts in the front of the car and look for one with a worn or burned place on it. It could also be a wire or tube resting on an exhaust manifold or on an exhaust pipe.
The first and easiest answer that comes to mind is that there is a problem with the cabin air circulating fan. BUT - - there is not really enuf specific information. Are you sure it is a burning RUBBER smell, or a burning PLASTIC smell, or a burning ELECTRICAL smell? All could point to different problems.
because its new that's what happens or...the burning and tapping sound like low/no oil. I would definitely check the oil before driving it directly to the dealership. I checked the oil, its full. The burning smell was there when i drove out of the dealership but the noise only happened about 4 hours later.
Many things can cause a burning smell under the hood of your car, if the smell is accompanied by smoke you are most likely looking at a fluid leak dripping onto something hot and burning off. If it smells sweet this would be a sign of a coolant leak. A ozone type smell would most likely be caused by a burnt clutch (standard transmission) or brakes hanging up and staying applied. burnt clutch smell would be expected if you have a new driver learning to drive a stick. An exhaust leak would smell, well, quite frankly like exhaust which is a dangerous gas to be inhaling (CO2, CO, etc). either way if your car is smelling funky you should really have a professional auto technician check it out to prevent damage to your health, the environment or future damage to your vehicle.
