burning smell. I checked for coolant, it was okay, then i checked the engine

do you have what used to be called a quarter car wash around your area if so take the car there and semi pressure wash the engine/compartment...drive it home and start looking around for a new leak..valve covers...intake..oil filter...oil pan...
