I drive 60 miles each way to work and have been noticing a smell of burning fluid when I park at destination. No drips under truck when I park and a top side inspection shows no problems.

I have been using 2 quarts of oil per 5K miles for the last 80K or so miles. I haven't been able to find a source but the smell persists.

Any ideas? .... THANKS

Have you checked you tranny or rear diff fluid levels at all? When was the last time they were changed?

I am guilty on the diff fluid. About 100K since I did the pinion seal and new fluid.

The Trans filter and fluid were done about 30K ago. 160K on the Trans build now.I need to get it up on my buddy's rack and poke around as well as change the diff fluid.

That would definitely be a good place to start. At the least, check the level.
