Burning rubber smell.
Three days ago i went for a drive after work, went through a few mud holes on a dirt road and such. When i got out of my truck i instantly smelled burning rubber (a smell im very familiar with) and had a small moment of panic, but figured it was the old dodge idling beside me in the parking lot. Then when i drove my truck again and stopped and got out i could smell it again, not as strong as before but this was a much shorter drive and the engine wasn't even warm yet. I took a peek underneath and found nothing against the exhaust but mud, opened the hood and after a good look found my broken block heater unplugged and resting very close to my exhaust manifold, so i plugged it back in and took it for a drive last night, still smelled it, so i took it to the do it yourself car wash and cleaned everything, every part of the exhaust, the engine, every spot i knew got hot and could have something stuck to it, it seemed to make a difference but ill keep you posted.
On a side not my clutch has a lot of grip, my brakes don't make noise or pull to the side, my belts are properly tensioned, my pulleys work fine and there were no fluid leaks though i will be checking my fluid levels.
