My engine takes a maximum 3.7 litres of oil according to the handbook, and I
saw the oil change mechanic tip in most of the 4 litre container and he then
checked the level and then for some reason went ahead and tipped in all of
it. The dipstick now reads above the maximum level. It's an early model T3
If it runs stationary in the driveway it soon smells very smoky there, which
must be the excess oil level burning off?
But yesterday driving through a bit of traffic with the windows shut, and
the heater fan going on the lowest setting and with the air intake vent set
to only taking in the outside air, it began to smell Smokey inside the car.
Is this likely to be a normal consequence of excess oil in the car? Or is it
likely to be that something else is adrift,to let a Smokey smell inside the
car whilst travelling?
