I’m selling something burning everytime I park my car. I thought it was the brakes even tho it’s squeaking. A check engine light came on 2 days ago stayed on now it’s off. I check the diagnostic on the screen and everything is ok but from the picture something is leaking

    Lots of possibilities here--even with a small leak, the oil can be spread around the engine by turbulence. No doubt some has reached a hot exhaust manifold. Seems like it's leaking from the top, so something like a valve cover gasket or PCV valve comes to mind, or bad gasket on the oil filler cap.
