BURNING SMELL

2002 Ford Taurus

Smells problem
2002 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 130000 miles

Hi

The inside of my 2002 ford taurus has a burning rubber smell when the heat is on. It seems to be an intermitten problem, at it's worst when the car is warming up. The car runs fine. I have inspected all rubber hoses and could not find any problems. I am stumped

Thank you

Start by checking under the hood for leaks
{(oil, coolant, tranny, power steering )
valve cover leaking
p/s hose leaking
tranny line or gasket leaking }

check the exhaust system and pipe
