I also have a torn boot, and am experiencing the same smelly problem. I can smell oil burning sometimes when I turn my a/c on, and when I exit the vehicle after driving. I understand that the grease from the boot is probebly burning when it hits my exhaust, but my oil level also keeps dropping.I can see grease on the opposite side of the engine from the torn boot, could I possibly have an oil leak somewhere as well-or am I just smelling the grease from the boot? And is it smarter to replace the entire cv axle if the boot has been torn for a couple months?
