What is this smell?!

Lately when driving my 1992 jeep wrangler with the windows down I have smelled an oily smell in the jeep. It only occurs when I have the jeep in gear with my foot of the gas to slow down (not touching the brakes). What could be causing this? I had opened the hood and revved the engine but no real smell. It really only happens when driving. It is a manual 4 cyl engine.

check for oil leaks. rear main, t-case. best guess would be oil flinging onto exhaust while driving.
