The engine oil pan gasket can develop a leak. Leaking oil may accumulate on the exhaust system resulting in a burning smell. Replacing the gasket should correct this leak.

2007 Ford Taurus Problems
The magnet for the camshaft position sensor may fall out of its mount and damage the synchronizers. This causes long crank times when starting the engine and may cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate. If this happens, both the magnets and the synchronizers need to be replaced.

i bought a 2007 taurus se in 2007; it is now 4/2013, this car has 49,000 actual miles on it (i work from home hardly ever drive it anywhere). so far i have had to replace the fuel pump, and now the transmission pan & gasket, the flap for the heat/air cond is stuck on a/c in the winter and stuck on heat in the summer (i live in AZ). it also already has a leak in the oil pan gasket, the torque mounts & the cradle mounts are cracked. i thought it was a good car, until it needed over $4000 in repairs and is still under 50,000 miles. and when i first bought it, ford didn't honor the tire warranty and i had to pay for my own replacement tires when they were needed. also, when the car was only at 28,000 miles ford wouldn't honor the warranty because i owned the car for 36 months when it reached 28k.
I totally agree, this is the worst car ever. The American car dealers want us (the Americans) to purchase more of the cars made here but if this is what we have to look forward to go foreign. I had been waiting several years to be able to purchase a car. Finally was able to. I went to a well known dealership (Mitsubishi) and this is what they loaded on me. A 2007 Ford Taurus piece of junk. Maybe a month after purchased things started to go down hill, we have had it put on the auto repair computers time after time and have bought numerous parts just to find something else is wrong.
in october 2011 i bought a used ford taurus from town east ford and neve will shop there again. i was told they would check all the fluids and make sure the car was running right. On the day i picked it up it had a flat tire and wasn't running like it was the day i test drove it. I went back and they said cash sale makes it your problem now. I put air in the tire cause they wouldnt then drove it home. next morning I noticed oil on the ground. they asked me to bring it in and they would look at it. turns out they didnt put the oil filter on tight enough. again i said take it back and again i was told cash sale no take backs. I have had to replace the battery, the fuel filter, the spark plugs and wires, clean the fuel injectors, the throttle body, get tires, the compressor squeals, i put on a new belt and now it is squealing when i start the car, the air conditioner isnt cold. I cant wait to get rid of this car. I always hated fords and this makes me hate them even more.
I have a 2007 Ford Taurus and I love it! It is comfortable and does what I want it to do. This is my second car with my first car of 6 years being an 89 Mercury Cougar. Ford makes very affordable and reliable cars!
