NISSAN ALTIMA SMELL PROBLEM

2005 Nissan Altima • 160,000 miles

I have a burnt oil smell from the engine when the car is driven and I come to a stop. I can smell it once the car is driven a few miles down the road and need help in determining what it could be. Thanks

I would first check the valve cover gasket. Chances are it is leaking oil down onto the exhaust manifold. Check that first.
