Burning smell under hood

Asked by Aug 02, 2015 at 01:06 PM about the 2005 MINI Cooper

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

After driving about 2 miles I  could smell something like burning -- maybe oil, maybe electrical.   It seemed near firewall, passenger side.   Open hood, no smoke, not registering hot.  This moring looking under the car some oil, a small puddle.   Turned car on for short time, no smoke, but burning smell came back, moved car back and a quarter size drip of maybe oil under car.  How many miles do you feel can drive before taking in?  What do you feel is the problem?  Thank you.
