Hello I started getting an oil smell inside the car. The mechanic said that
oil is leaking on top of the exhaust. But they couldn't see where from. So
the added a infrared dye to the oil. The reading in the oil is pretty high
so I am thinking may be too much oil. Has anyone had this problem before?.
My car was using 1qt of oil every 2000 miles but it stopped last time I too
k it to the dealer for the 90k service. Could it be that the valvoline oil
service place is doing something wrong?

Their filters may have been leaking. Had another leaker on the list
a while back - was the "O" ring seal on the oil cooler??
Perhaps the dealer tightened the oil cooler?
What all is involved on the 90K? Did they retorque the heads? tighten
the cam covers? The head gaskets have been known to seep oil that then
makes it's way onto the exhausts.
Things get weirder and weirder. I had engine check light on. So I use my od
b reader to get the error code. The error code said 02. So it thought it wa
s the o2 sensor. I talk to a friend and show him the error code in the mach
ine and he said is the 02 sensor. The check engine light is now gone since
i replace the oil pressure switch.
