GAS SMELL IN ENGINE OIL

1995 Mercedes Benz 220cdi

Engine Mechanical problem
1995 Mercedes Benz 220cdi 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 92,412 miles

just bought car from a used car dealer. Changed engine oil & filter. Drained out 5+ qt. - Should have been 6.5 qt. Oil & filter had a strong gas smell. Eng. Runs normal - quiet, smooth. Check eng. Light on - before & after oil change. Causes? Repairs? Driving limits? Waiting on title in the mail - only drove it home. Dealer claims they drove round trip from Lima to Chicago - good gas mileage.

You may possibly have a leaky injector dumping excessive fuel into the crank case, try some injector cleaner and see what happens
