Oil burning smell after 4 miles drive?

Postby ms2000 » June 21st, 2017, 8:01 pm

Since 100k I used high mileage as I notice some oil seepage - it stopped - I also drifted from using high mileage - now at 170k, noticed some leak - so used high mileage synthetic hoping it will fix the issue.

Changed oil 2 weeks ago - but notice that after 4 miles drive, I can smell it - what is the consequence of it if I continue to use the car?

What do most people do? Timing belt was done at about 160k - then the seals were also changed due to minor leak.

the D16A1 has a notroious leak from th head gasket by the tbelt area. My old engine had about 161k when i did the head gasket to fix it.
