I have a 99 540 with 70,000 miles. The car has been very well taken care of. After driving, a hot rubber smell comes from the engine compartment. It does not smell like hot oil but rather hot rubber. I noticed that the power steering fluid reserve had leaked somewhat. Could that be causing the smell?
