    Slight smell of burning oil

    ive started to notice this the past couple of weeks.i get a slight smell of burning oil when i drive my car first thing in the morning.as soon as it warms up it seems to go away.Ive checked my oil and i arent loosing any, and there are no visible leaks anywhere.

    Any ideas anyone??Cheers.

    Changed anything recently?

    Mine sometimes smells of oil, comes and goes. But I have a leaky sump gasket.

    all ive done is change my air filter and deristrict my air box,but that was months ago.i read somewhere(may have been tv)that oil can get sucked through your breather pipe,without effecting the cars oil level,and that this is quite normal??or it could be a sign that the turbo is showing wear?
