While adding oil today to the car ('89 D'elegance) some engine oil leaked on engine and the engine was giving off a burning smell, I am assuming that it was from the oil that leaked on the engine?? How long should this smell remaine around when engine is hot.

It will probably be gone in less than an hour of engine operation I'd say. Probably just a couple minutes on a hot engine will get rid of it..
