I looked in the cowling area , with nothing unusual. I did notice that the Cabin Air filter was real dirty so I got a new one. But, I also found a number of leaves that hot gotten inside inside the engine compartment.
A couple of them were lodged beside the engine under a metal line that was warm and appeared to run from the radiator back towards the cabin. I guess that feeds the heater core. I think when the car got hot and I turned on the heat/defrost the leaves might have started smoldering and stinking. It wasn't a problem on recirculated air.
Well I'll drive for awhile tonight so I'll see my Stinkin Linkin is fixed or not . Repair cost = $15 for a new Cabin Air filter !

I started getting a smell thru vents and it turned out to be the valve coils (COPS). Oil was leaking and burning.
