-03 V6 oil smell after service (~83.885 mi)
surched the forum but could not find any thread about my problem.
After my mechanic did a service on the car there is a smell of oil, like if the filler cap was not there. No burned smell, more of a "fresh" working oil.
We (read he) has looked at it twice and cannot find any place on the engine that shows any leak. Not even a hint of moist of oil.
Filler cap is tighten to full stop, dip stick is at the full stop...
The smell comes emidiately when you start the engine and the smell is more intense when the oil is warm. Of course the smell fades away whith the speed, when halted the smell is getting back in to the cabin.
No fun that the nice smell of leather is now a days a smell of working oil instead...
Help with suggestions where to look or try out are very appriciated.
