Burnt Oil Smell 97 Es300


Recommended Posts

Started getting a burnt oil smell that is fairly strong inside passenger compartment. Had oil change about 3 weeks ago and was informed that may have smell for bit due to how design is and getting oil spill etc. really noticing this after being on interstate for about 20 mins. Only had car for about 3d months and never noticed before. No visible oil leaks around manifold or on ground, any ideas????

Check the area around the Oil filter for any evidence of spilled oil, resulting from the oil change. If its dry than you need to look further. Could also be the valve cover(s). Make sure that you identify the cause, and that you have enough oil,
