Hi all,

My car has recently started to have a funny burning smell when I start it and the fans are on. I have checked under the bonnet and the burning smell is coming fromsomething under there. Maybe oil or diesel on something?

I have also noticed that my carpet mainly passenger side is wet? Maybe or maybe not related.

Thanks
Nathan

I'm not too sure mate as I've never checked it. Im gunna make a mark on where it currently sits then check it later. Could this be the cause of the burning too?

Itskind of funny its rather sweet with an hint of oil. Maybe the hint of oilis just the burn of the sweet if that makes sense? I checked my water and the indicator was rock bottom. I filled it and will check tomorrow as I've not reallydone anymiles since filling.

You may also want to check the passenger footwell again to see if really gets wet.
