My car recently started making some weird noises and running funny so i'm looking for some help. Here is what I know. I know its a problem with the engine (my guess something is wrong with a head gasket or spark plug) because the noise from the engine is louder and has a deeper tone accompanied by less power. I have to use a lot more gas in order to not stall. The problem was not gradual it just started out of the blue. There is also a funny smell now coming from the exhaust and just a tiny bit of oil on top of the engine where two of the spark plugs enter, a little more on the side and front but not enough for it to be a leak and car still retains oil. There are no other problems.
Loss of power
Louder Deeper engine sound
Funny exhaust smell
Small amount of oil on or near engine (seems to be normal because this is not new).
have the same problem?
