Smelling inside car while drive

Jun Eun

Asked by Feb 21, 2016 at 07:07 PM about the 2011 Jeep Patriot North Edition 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It has been about a month that I bought a 2011 patriot north edition.

Some time ago, I have smelled like burning oil or fuel, not paper or sweet or rubber from
inside of my car when I am driving. It smells about less than a minute and disappear, but
it happens often. I mostly use heater for windsheild and my foot. I don't see anything
dripping down on the ground.

I sincerely hope that someone could give me a answer for this problem.

Thank you.

Might be a slight oil leak from one of the engine gaskets that burns/drips onto the exhaust and comes in through the vent.
