My 2002 has done this ----------mechanic said probably valved cover gaskets. Did not replace --------------do not notice it two years late r. no oil on floor ...I have a 2002 with 23000 miles on it. Just recently it has a burnt rubber smell when the heat is on. Even had a little smoke coming out of the vents. Completely dissapeared when I turned off the heat and fan. Any ideas?
Thanks. I don't have the 2002 paper service manuals yet (I have a MacBook not a PC) but is this something I can address, or do you recommended for a shop to handle? I recall reading something in this forum (so much information) that fixing this is a challenge as the last bolt is tough to tighten...just don't know if this is an issue on all years/models as mine is 2002. I am having oil changed on Monday at Ford, and will also ask them to look at it, but figured I would ask here for the true expert opinion.
