Asked by Jan 14, 2014 at 05:26 AM about the 2004 Ford Taurus SES

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I had a transmission pan seal failure and a lot of trans oil had leaked out all over my engine several months ago. I have corrected the issue and had engine power washed. I no longer have any leakage of oil. Several months later I still very horrible burned oil smell is still being emitted through-out the car via the vents whenever I use the heat or A/C. I have changed the air filter and had no change in smell. What more can I do to correct this issue???
