Under hood seems to be a little wet in a small area, at
base, next the engine on the passenger side.  An

sounds like one of your gaskets is leaking and the small amount of oil is burning off allowing the smell to enter into the cabin. You will need to pinpoint the area of the leak and replace the correct gasket. Most probably the valve cover gasket, but check to make sure.
