    I have a 2000 Tacoma prerunner V6 with 107,000 miles on it. Over the last 7,000 miles or so I have noticed a burnt oil smell when I parked it in the garage at the end of the day and didn't think anything of it. Now I have noticed about 10 small oil leak spots in my garage. Any ideas on what this could be or what I should do?

    I would start looking at the valve covers for leaks. One could be leaking onto an exhaust manifold.
