#1 of 1 Burning smell when idling?
Mar 04, 2013 (6:57 am)
I have a 2005 Mariner Premier (V6 AWD), and over the past week or so I have noticed that whenever the car is idling, whether sitting in a parking lot or at a long stop light, I can smell a burning smell coming from the vents. I just had the oil changed about 1,500 miles ago with synthetic oil. The smell is more like burning rubber than burning oil, I think, but I'm no expert. Anyone have an idea??
