Thank you ahead of time for the feedback.
I own a 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix GT (155,000). The car seems to be driving fine, I have not had any major repairs for 3 years and 50,000 miles. I have not had a tune up either. Just the typical oil changes and one Tranny Fluid Flush Chrysler wiTech MicroPod 2
After driving for at least 30+ minutes, maybe 30 miles, my engine seems real hot. One day I passed my hand over the hood, and it felt like I was passing it directly over a space heater. Maybe this is normal because it is an engine, but i'm not expert. I do know that my car is not overheating, no coolant boiling over, or leaks. So i'm sure it would not be the thermostat or water pump. My gauges do not go up and I have no warning lights.
Also, it always smells like burnt oil after driving. I do get frequent oil changes, 3000-5000 miles. I'm not leaking oil as far as I can tell, there is never leaks, or a puddle of oil anywhere I park, especially after driving long distances. But if I don't get an oil change shortly after 3000 miles then my oil level will be low and I will get a warning light. I either fill it up or get it changed. Is this because it burns the oil, because I see no leakage.
Any ideas on what could be going on with my car and should I see a mechanic? No warning lights, no visible leakage?
