There is a smell like burning plastic or rubber inside the cabin while driving. I checked all around engine and trans for leaks and found none ( hot or cold ). Seems to be worse with heater on. Engine was just rebuilt by a reputable shop. Any ideas?

Do you

Probably a blower motor starting to die or a dead varmint that crawled up into the system.
