Have Jeep Questions? Ask a Jeep Repair Expert for Answers
Hello and welcome to just answer. Several things can cause a burning rubber smell. A plastic bag that became caught on the exhaust pipe and melted can cause this, an oil leak dripping on the exhaust manifold (leaky valve cover) can cause a smell. Should be fairly easy to find. Have a shop or dealer you trust perform a good visual inspection in the engine compartment and under the vehicle for any oil leaks. Have the exhaust system inspected when the Jeep is up on the hoist. If there is evidence of a melted plastic bag on the exhaust system, then the technician can use a wire wheel to remove it.
I hope this information helps, and if so please take a minute to rate my service!
