I have a 2003 Outback with no oil leaks or even oil sweating anywhere (the head gaskets have been both replaced). After steep hill climbs, usually going skiing, there is a pretty strong burning oil smell coming through the dash vents (originating from the engine bay) - even after a new oil change? Any ideas on what this could be?

I burned up my clutch going through the mountains up hill - had to learn to drive it differently, dealer told me these clutches are not manufactured very well. ...not sure if yours was auto or stick.
