MERCURY SABLE SMELL PROBLEM

2001 Mercury Sable • 16,000 miles

When I am driving, there starts to be a burning smell from the engine. Smells like burning rubber.

Gotta open the hood and look around. We can't do that over a computer. Check the serpentine belt for signs of rubbing. If there's oil leaking onto hot engine parts, that will cause a smell. Look for the highest point you see that oil to determine the source of the leak.
