Smoke coming from engine.
 
So I took my 330 out for a ride today and noticed a burning smell. I pulled in the driveway and opened the good and saw smoke coming from the engine block. The engine never overheated and there is plenty of oil/coolant. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.

valve cover gasket is likely.

Look out for VCG,OFHG,OIl separator ..

Use seal on VCG corners.

Always worth a pay for Professional engine clean where you can start to look for LEAKY gaskets ..:D


Dirt acts like a HOt SUMMEr JACKEt on the engine. :(
