Car smells like burnt oil and burnt hair when fast acceleration to get up to
speed with freeway traffic. Mechanic says no visible oil leaks great gas mileage,
good power, 200,000 miles on motor.
Your mechanic is on the right track but I think they need to look again.
I agree, check the oil level and the tailpipe tip for an oily residue that will tell you if your burning oil, and for a dead and partially fried critter in the engine compartment or down along the exhaust system somewhere.
Thank you. I will check this out.
