Default Having Oil Issues

I noticed after I drive my PT and shut it off it smells of Burnt Oil. I put a new oil cap on and it didn`t make any difference I have oil setting in the little hole bye where you put oil in the Bolts are all tight does anyone else have this problem?

Default Re: Having Oil Issues

Start with your PCV ... its a plastic elbow with rubber hose attached---- to the left of your oil fill cap.. it threads out.... you can clean it easily with paint thinner, ensuring it functions... ( air flows one-way only through it ) .. if it does not, then replace for minimal ( $20 ish ) ... also.. be sure your last oil change didnt result in an overfill... that can happen too.
..
A start anyway, there's plenty of help here

The Turbo is strong, fast and reliable.. People that don't understand the love of a PT, probably don't deserve to.

Sounds like some one spilled oil on the valve cover changing oil. Or adding oil.
