Default Mystery Stink

Every time I roll into my garage at home and shut off my black beauty, I smell the distinct odour of burning plastic coming out from under my PT somewhere. Obviously something is not right and I wonder if others have gone through this. Comments appreciated.

Hi Bob, yes I scoped all underneath and saw no stray plastic on the exhaust or anywhere. At first I thought my block heater cord was dangling down to the exhaust manifold or somethin' but nope. Guess I'll get the dealer to identify the source. Thanks for the reply.

Only time I experienced that smell, I found a plastic trash bag had blown up under the car and part of it melted on the exhaust. I removed the bag but it took another trip before the plastic that had melted on the exhaust finally burned off.

Yours my be something entirely different.

All this talk of mystery stink makes me want to take a shower.

I do hope you get that resolved.
