For the last couple of months my car has been putting off a burning oil or gas smell. From what I can tell, it's not immediately once the car has been started or when the car is cold. When I drive to work (approximately 21 miles on the highway one way) I shut the car off and once I get out I can smell it. To me it smells like it's coming from the front of the car which would make me lean towards oil. However the oil is changed on schedule and it even still occurs right after fresh oil changes. As far as I can tell there isn't any oil leak as the headers are clean and there is no residue under the car from dripping oil. The car runs fine mechanically and doesn't appear to have anything wrong, just the smell. Please help. Thank you.
