Help. I have 97 P/U that recently has decided to emit an odor of burning rubber while the engine is running. At the same time the odor starting emanating, a low pitch whining also started from the engine/engine area. Any ideas of the source or what needs to be fixed?

...pop the hood and look for fluid. Could be leaky valve cover gasket...

Thanks for the reply. The smell and whining turned out to be my alternator going. The wires were melting in the alternator. Replaced the alternator and the whining and smell were gone.
