Hey there rasmataz,
Thanks so much for your reply. My husband says it's in "the back". Actually can smell something right after starting) Something must be drippin?
Our son is a college student an only want it safe:) Husband noticed when he went to pic it up, that during idling for about 20-30 min.'S (just getting dark out and very humid out)or so like a misty smoke by headlights and you can smell something that( husband thinks is some oil dripping on something thats hot). He got this from a women woman
that had some neurological problemsParkinsons' an driving on wrong side of road few times :( and I believe hit some speed bumps hard but maintained it(per her son) side mirror replaced. [TOOK THE LICENSE AWAY from her]. Brand new radiator replaced (son said a leak in it) and antifreeze to the top. It had some oil leaked on ground this am. Husband drove it home last pm(20-25) mins, and he smelled it but it didn't get. :"Hot" in that time period. Rides beautifully other than that smell. Sm. PULL TO THE r. Don't want the teenager driving it with that just want to maintain and (care for it well) Thanks so much! Any history of such, would be so appreciated1

Wash engine down thoroughly with water and degreaser allow to dry and drive car, inspect for signs of fresh leaking, common places are oil filter, oil pressure sensor, front seal, rear main seal rocker cover, start here.
