Mine smells of burning oil or something after driving it for awhile, not even hard though. I'm sure it isn't the actual oil, but it comes from the hood and theres black ashy stuff directly below (on the car's actual panel) directly below the oil can thing. Normal?

Black ashy stuff would never be normal. Could you have a belt out of alignment that is dusting off? If there is actual ash then something is actually burning and that can't be good.

Which oil can thing - oil filter, or oil pan?

What is this actual panel of which you speak? I'm thinking possibly exhaust leak but...

A picture is worth a thousand vague words.

@Ultramaroon @Tcoat

Here you guys go. Hopefully it isn't too dark, but this is what I'm talking about. Bought the car used 15,000 miles ago and there was a bit there before. Now it's a lot more .-.


I do have to include that my car makes a noise like in this video. Not the cricket noise, but that loud almost clacking sound, but not engine knock-like.

You're too funny. It's not really a skid plate but you can call it that. Try to take a picture of the stain. My money's on exhaust leak.

Edit: That looks like an oil leak. Grit and dust sticks to it.

Yep belt. Looks like stock pulleys though so weird it is stripping it like that. I would get it in and have that checked.
