Smells!

First crank in the morning after heating I smell burnt oil coming out of my vents. It smells like the inside of my oil cap. Any ideas?... Changing oil today! Also a strong smell of radiator fluid coming from the front of the trk. Nothing wet , overflo is normal, no leaks that I can see. The Hemi is running strong! Again any ideas? Thank you to the Hemi trk club & Merry Christmas to all it's members!

Check the radiator end tanks where the fins are soldered to the end tanks they leak near the top corners. Also tanks cracks near upper hose connection. Thermostat gasket or pump may be leaking also. One other spot to check is where the timing cover meats the block drivers side near dipstick mount the gasket sweats there sometimes.

Oil smell inside the truck may be a broken recirculation door and a Valve cover leak.
