Occasional odor of burnt oil... Couldn't find cause. One day while waiting for someone. Sudden loss of fluid and smoke from oil burning.
Oil from passenger side
Oil started leaking/leaving small oil puddles after driving. Took it to rhoden and they said it was the oil filter. Still leaked after they "fixed" it. I think they knew it was covered under their contract with me and they didnt want to pay to fix it. Still working on getting it fixed.
i have an oil leak and it look likes its coming from the driver side in the front of the car, when you raise the hood you can look down and watch it drip. I get the oil low statement every 3 to 4 days to add oil.
Oil leaking from front of motor I put about 1-2 quarts in 2 week period
