My car smokes on the right side. The performance is fine, but it is smoking when the weather is warm, and now I smell burning oil. It only smokes when its warm outdoors and only on the right side. I have had the valve cover gasket replaced, the seal under the car where the exhaust is, the radiator replaced, and my fluids are full, yet it still smokes.
Do you

Hi MELTONQUEEN,

Right side is the trans and should not be smoking, unless it is from front section where the coolant recovery tank is. If that is the case, it should be steam, not oil burning.

Oil burning could be due to oil dropping onto the exhaust and it could be due to leaks from the oil filter, valve cover gasket and oil sump gasket.

You would need to check where the leaking is coming from.
