Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2001 Ford Explorer Sport trac and started
noticing a burning smell coming from under the
hood. I have checked all the liquids and they are
fine. I have not used the heater.  What can it be?

Is it oil or coolant? Might have a bad gasket or hose and a fluid is leaking onto the exhaust. How is the serpentine belt?

Best Answer Mark helpful

I'm guessing it is oil. The belt looks good.
