Burning Rubber

I did a couple searches and i didn't find anything so i apologize if this has been discussed before but i noticed tonight while driving too and from work a smell like burning rubber very faintly coming from my heater and when i opened the hood could smell it there as well. Again, not overwhelming but certainly present. I did recently do an oil change but i don't think it's oil burning off the cat still, that was days ago and after the initial burn i didn't notice anything until now. I'm not really sure where or how to start looking for the problem so any advice is appreciated. I'm a newbie to working on my own car still so I hope i'm not being an idiot about something really basic here! lol

Re: Burning Rubber

I had the same issue. My car smelt like burning plastic/rubber. I checked my engine bay and everything and I also tried to drive as gentle as possible on the clutch (thinking I was burning the clutch).
I finally brought it to my mechanic and he told me a plastic bag was stuck to the exhaust... Fail.

Only way to know for sure is to bring it to your mechanic.
