Keep smelling oil??


Recommended Posts

I have recently started being able to smell oil in my truck for some reason, I occasionally got a smell of it before but when i was driving home today it smelled really strong and I could smell it the whole way home. Engine oil is still full, any ideas on what is causing this?

Thanks

Your driving a Comanche. :D

 

As mentioned, valve cover gasket, oil leaking from CCV vacuum lines running down intake on to exhaust, RMS leaking and oil blowing on exhaust, leaking oil pan gasket, leaking timing cover gasket. Get a light and rag and climb under to investigate, it could be one or all of the above.

Or a leaking oil sender or leaky oil filter adapter seals. As suggested, go take a look. Start at the top. It's all gonna end up dripping from the engine at the RMS area so don't jump on that first.

And don't forget the distributor gasket. Mine was leaking like a sieve, making a huge mess on the whole side of the motor and all over the starter.
