    Are you burning oil? Is your car smoking?

    check around your valve cover. Make sure its not leaking out a little. Then check ur oil pan gasket and your head gasket.

    what he said ^. if you smell oil when you're inside your car, it most likely means oil is leaking from somewhere and burning on the header or exhaust.
