For a while now I have noticed that when driving 15 plus miles, when I park, I can smell a burning oil smell on the passenger side of the vehicle near the dash. Occasionally I am able to see a very faint steem. I check my oil level and it was fine. I check the antifreeze resevoir and it was dry. I added antifreeze to the overflow resevoir and then added antifreeze straint to the radiator until full. I drove the car for appoximately one week, (still smelling the burning when driving 15 plus miles). After driving it for the one week, I checked the coolant levels again. The overflow resevoir was nearly empty, but the radiator was full. I am assuming the smell is burning antifreeze from a leak, (please correct me if this is wrong). The temperature gauge in the car never exceeds the halfway point so it doesn't seem to be overheating. I just need to figure out what this smell is. The car runs normally, just driving it distances the smell shows up. Please help. Thank you.
have the same problem?
