SUBARU OUTBACK SMELL PROBLEM

2005 Subaru Outback • 95,000 miles

Burning smell from heat vents with outside air vent open when the at low speeds or standing still. No smell when driving above 40 mph. Had the car serviced and they could not determine the problem. Oil was leaking from calipers and had them replaced but the smell is still there.

Check the fresh/recirculating air vents. Ensure it is in the closed position to prevent ou side air from coming in. For the smell, check for oil leaks getting to exhaust. Ensure coolant level is correct and engine is not overheating.
