When there's little pooled oil or drips, you can use a smoke machine to inject a white, non-toxic smoke into the dipstick tube, then you look for where that smoke sneaks out. That will work when the leak is in a non-pressurized part of the engine such as the oil pan, cylinder head cover, and the return passages. It might not work if the leak is in a pressurized passage.
No leaks means oil is being burnt in cylinders mostly due to worn valve seals.
Thx alot looked all around possible places on engine where there could be a leak and nothing
How can I be smelling it curbing whenever hot bout no smoke and no leak.there is smoke from tailpipes but not engine at all.
If the engine is burning oil, the dye will show up inside the tail pipe, but that doesn't explain why you're smelling it.
That's what I'm trying to determine, why its going thru so much oil but not leaking and smelling very bad inside car if any windows are down at all. Going thru about a quart of oil pier fill of fuel.
Smoking from exhaust is usualy an indication of oil being burnt in cylinders if the smoke is grey.
What is so mind boggling about this? The valve seals are bad allowing oil to get into the cylinders to be burnt.
Just that low miles on motor and that smell whenever engine in warm to where you can't drive work windows down... That's mind boggling without a leak .
My volve S60 turbo charged AWD have a white smoke steam coming out from the pipe but there is no check engine light on or
