Re: Burning smell, HVAC blower related
Problem found -
When this problem first showed up, I thought it smelled like something burning, but it had more of an oil odor vs. electrical. I checked best I could the valve covers, but it was too cold to get under the car the last two weeks. I pulled the cover off the engine, and found a small field mouse nest on the intake manifold, thought that was the problem, removed it, still had the smell. Then got on the trail of it possibly being the heater motor, but that didn't turn up anything.
Had a chance to visit my local mechanic shop this afternoon and put it on the lift. Found the passenger side valve cover leaking directly onto the exhaust pipe between the header and cat. Burns off fast that's why no oil leaking on the drive or garage floor. Its in the shop in the morning getting two new valve cover gaskets.
