I have a 2001 Ford Focus ZX3 that has the infamous "burning oil smell".
I've looked into it a little and tracked down these three technical
service bulletin summaries that address the problem.
Does anyone know where I can see the full text of the bulletins? And
possibly more importantly, do they offer any real solutions to the
problem other than "don't buy a Ford"?
