WHEN AT IDLE, I SMELL BURNING OIL.
2000 Nissan Altima • 14,000 miles
The car idles lower than it used to, almost stalls. There is oil on the driveway, more towards the passenger side of the car. On the passenger side back rim, as well as the bumper around the muffler their is black, but I do not see smoke when the car is running. When I first start the car, there is a squeal like a belt is loose, but a little different. It stops after 15 seconds. It squeals everytime I start the car, whether the engine is warm or cold. While I am driving, if I accelerate and the RMPs go over 5000, I hear the valves rattle. Is this a major repair?
You sure its not brake fluid? Squealing could be the belt tensioner loose/defective and also a driven component bearing-It is a major repair when you're dealing with the valve train
No, brake fluid levels stay fine. I use about a quart of oil every 7 to 10 days, depending on the amount of driving.
