Burn smell in car when using ac or heat, what could it be?

(1998 Toyota Avalon)
in Potwin, KS on January 13, 2014
I have replaced the seals in front of engine but not behind it. Don't see oil leakage, but the smell is terrible when I have heat or air on. I don't seem to get odor when heat/ac not in use.

See if oil is seeping from the valve cover on to the exhaust manifold.
