: oil smell

02-25-10, 03:28 PM
In the last few weeks Ive noticed a slight oil burning smell when Im sitting at a light.Dont smell it as Im driving,and see no smoke out the exhaust.No drops under the car,and no smell when i oepn the hood.Seems like it must be dripping onto an exhaust somehow and vaporizing--any thoughts or experience.They did change out the power steering unit,maybe thats it--thanks

Torched, Good Morning,
I would start with the valve cover gasket L or R and work my way down to the transmission. Perhaps a lift would help. Could also be the rear end, but not very likely. Good Luck
