I just bought a 93 vovlo 850 glt. The car had not been run for a while so when I drove it home I noticed a oil burning smell. When I opened the hood there was oil all over the passenger side of the car and when I took off the cap to the engine there was smoke coming out. I dnt know what this could be.

Do you
have the same problem?

Could be bad rings in the motor.

You need to find out where the leak is before you destroy the motor

Ok, have a dye added to the oil and have someone with an ultraviolet light pin point the leak
