    Chrysler 200 Limited 3.6 liter. There’s oil in my engine compartment. I smell a burning scent through my AC, but there’s  no oil leaking on the ground. Could that be a manifold leak?

    Check for any oil leaks coming from the valve cover gasket dripping down on the exhaust manifold. This is a very common issue when you can smell a burnt smell but no oil on the ground. Oil leaks can be really tricky to find and the easiest way is often to clean the whole engine and then driver for a while and check again

    Thank you. I think it’s coming from the oil filter assembly. Doesn’t seem like a tough job.
