    I'm over 10,000 miles now and the burning smell hasn't returned since I got the exhaust system good and hot. On the other hand, I had a loaner Lounge when my Sport was in for service recently and it did have the burning exhaust smell with less than 300 miles.

    Check your car out thoroughly. If nothing else presents itself, take it out foran "Italian tuneup". Get the exhaust system hot and keep it that way for 30 minutes and see if you smell it again after that.

    I'm closing in on 9,000.
    It didn't tend to depend on whether I'd done that or not. I specifically monitored it during a few trips to my dogs vet and my parents house which are about 30-45 minutes away a good solid highway drive.
    When I would come to a stop on the exit ramp I would get the smell.

    I know the car is pretty well "airtight" because the door closes markedly differently with the windows open versus closed. So if the smell is coming in from someplace it is coming in from an opening inside the car.

    I know the smell of an exhaust system....and it shouldn't be coming through the vents..not on a new car.
    All: I can only recommend having your local studio check this burning smell out.. any slippage or improper shifting could be causing this... or is it exhaust smell??

    My personal experience with it in both my 5 speed Sport and the automatic Lounge I had as a loaner last week is that it is exhaust related since obviously the Lounge has no clutch. Again, I have not smelled it in the Sport since taking it out to some very lightly travelled backroads and driving in a very spirited manner for about 30 minutes. By that, I mean the tach stayed between 4000 and 6000 rpms for most of that time and I'm fairly certain that most of the exhaust pipe would have been glowing a dull red once I was done, not simply driving the car for 30 minutes. Problem solved for me.

    Prior to that, when the car had been running for 10 to 15 minutes I would get a acrid oil based burning smell and I smelled the same thing in the Lounge after the same period of time. To me, it is probably an oil coating applied on the exhaust during the manufacturing process that doesn't "burn off" very easily at all and puts off a stink every time the exhaust gets warm. It is very similar to a smell I had on two previous vehicles when I replaced their stock exhaust with aftermarket stainless steel systems. Now it is entirely possible that something different is going on with other's 500s but I'm confident that the issue is resolved with mine.

    That sounds VERY much like a good explanation of what is going on. The Studio checked the car and did not find any abnormal ingress points and no fluids were leaking/burning/dripping.

    My 500L is in the shop right now getting a clutch replacement, however the studio decided to tell me it was me riding the clutch, (I don't ride the clutch and have driven standards for years!)
    They looked at my clutch thats in there now and advised me there is "blueing" in spots. (If you ride the clutch it will be completely blue) Blueing in spots means something is defective.

    bluing in spots would make me think something got on the flywheel. this is what happens when a little wheel bearing grease makes it's way to the flywheel.



    I would request they replace the flywheel. You can't really machine out hot spots, they will cause future problems.

    I have a 2015 sport automatic and mine does the same thing. I get the smell after engaging the passing gear. I was told it was gases in the exhaust burning off. Nothing to worry about. Because I rarely stomp on it. 33000 miles, if it was the transmission it would have gave out by now.

    Angry Burning oil smell

    Hello Everyone,

    I own a 2012 500c pop convertible manual transmission and was having the same issues. The clutch did fail and I had to replace it last December (around 75K miles). The smell won't go away even with the new clutch . I have to have my AC only with the face setting because if I position it for face and foot or foot only the smell is so bad so its coming from the floor area. Took it to a shop to get my oil changed and they said the gasket is seeping oil and its getting burned, hence the smell.
    Anyone had the same diagnosis given?

    Thanks,
    Alex C. - Dallas
