Day one: Had a small little drop of oil on the driveway.
Day three: still had a a few drops falling onto the driveway, starting to smell burnt oil when driven for very long.
Day Four: Drove most of the day. Oil level was fine.
Day Five: Oil is low by a quart. Burnt smell and leak (drops) are still present.
checked oil pan, oil plug nothing apparent wiped everything down. nothing showing a leak.
Day Six: Drove about 30 miles away and back. Oil low smell and leak persisted.
Day seven: Checked oil added a quart again. Drove an hour away and half way back checked oil nothing on the dip stick. NOTHING. Added oil got truck home. Smoke now coming from under hood and again NOTHING on dip stick. Burnt smell is strong.
Leak is not visible. Any ideas on what in the world this could be? O ring, gasket, etc??? Only working vehicle and we need it fixed asap.
We will try the filter. that is what my hubby thought it was to begin with so he made sure it was tight and he did change it not too long ago, I think he used a filter from Checker or Auto Zone.
