View Full Version : crank oil smells of gasoline

Changed my oil and it smelled strongly of gasoline.
I haven't modified or touched the top end of the motor. My air filter is shot.
Appreciate any suggestions.

Sounds to me like an overly rich condition. Any check engine lights?? I had something similar on my blower car, ended up being a huge vaccum leak (actually a boost leak) right between the aftercooler and the throttle body. Just blew one of the hose clamps out of place and allowed boosted air to escape next to the passengers side header. It got worse as the rpms climbed. I found it pretty quickly, but my oil smelled pretty gassy.......
