Default This is possibly a first...

Yes I'm back to reap the sweet rewards of the knowledge on this forum.

LoL anyway. This is a question about my 99 SL2, 75K, 5 speed.

I've been noticing a little more oil loss than normal lately, say, between 1/8 and 1/4 of a quart every 450 miles. It's been more toward that 1/4 quart, and now when I turn on the cold air (NOT the A/C) I can distinctly smell oil. I cannot smell it with the A/C turned on, nor with the heater on. ONLY with the cold air turned on.

I have just recently changed the oil, and I'm not noticing any leaks whatsoever (save for a small stain around the VGC, which has been there for some time now). Also, I am NOT getting any SES light. I DO have an oil breather filter installed and it's brand new... the old one was filthy.

Any input is greatly appreciated. I am stumped on this one.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

So I guess everyone else is as baffled as me.

crankcase gases are vented out through the breather and they make their way into your car when you have the blower fan on (takes in air from top of firewall).

that's probably why you smell it... as for oil loss, that could be a large number of things.
