Replaced Valve Cover Gasket & Vanos Seals. Still have leak and burning oil smell. :(
I had a VANOS rattle, a small oil leak and a burning oil smell so I replaced my Valve Cover Gasket along with the rubber seals on the Valve Cover Nuts.
I followed the Besian guide for the VANOS seals & rattle and also replaced the VANOS gasket (where the VANOS meets the block).
Everytime I drive my car I can smell burning oil and the car is using probably a quart every 600 miles. I used a mirror and went around the gasket and the only wet spot I can find is under the VANOS.
I made sure to clean off that plate above the exhaust under the VCG and when I checked it today it was dry.
Is it possible for the VANOS leak alone to cause this burning oil smell.
Why is this happening to me.
