I think I have the exact same problem on my '03 svt. After I park I almost always notice a slight burning smell and if this is the same issue does yours smell more like a fluid burning? I had a pretty bad power steering leak that I had to fix, but after I got the hose replaced I was still noticing a slight burning smell. I thought it might've been some remaining fluid burning off that leaked on the engine, but still months after I fixed it there is still the same burning smell when I park. After that I thought it might just be my hypersensitive nose at work but after seeing this post I'm thinking it might be something to do with the coolant.

Pretty sure my issue is a stuck caliper - replacing this week, will post later in the week the results.
