Question about Cars & Trucks
If you are using oil in your engine; the burning smell is oil leaking onto your exhaust manifold
Posted on Mar 17, 2018
When you park, put a few sheets of newspaper under the engine compartment and weigh them down with stones or wood. Check in the morning. If you see a lot of spots of oil, they are telling the truth. If not, a plastic shopping bag is stuck to the exhaust manifold or the exhaust pipe just behind the engine.

SOURCE: i have an 86 honda
There are two slots in the valve cover right by the cam shaft sprocket that have to be honda bonded or black rtv. look closely at the valve cover right above the gasket underneath the timing belt cover. Hope that helps.

valve cover gasket is like $20 and a do it yourself job, just buy a manual like a chiltons from an auto parts store. if it was valve cover, the smoke would be coming from engine, not tailpipe.
rear seal is in between engine and tranny, this would cause oil to leak on ground, but not to burn
if smoke is coming from tailpipe, your piston rings might be going bad. that is an expensive repair, but switching to synthetic oil may give you several more years of life out of the piston rings, synthetic oil has a way of soaking into bad piston rings and temporarily making them like new again, unless they are already too far gone.

Hi,welcome to fix ya.
these are pretty easy just pull the spark plug wires off and remove the cover and replace the gasket and 4 seals on the sparkplug holes

make sure they are tight
could be time for head gaskets
make sure the old gasket from the old filter came off the block sometimes they come off old filter and stick this causes a leak due to improper seal.

SOURCE: gasket needs replacing
then you need to replace the gaskets drain oil from oil pan take all bolts out and drop the pan as far as valve pan covers buy rubber gaskets not cork they are a lot more pliable and less prone to leak
