This is dripping. But it only sometimes happens. But it's definitely oil. With my valve cover leak it just oozes out, dripped a bit, and smoked off the headers.
Not sure what to think here. I can constantly smell it but some stops it's smoking everywhere and others I barely smell it. I've tried beating the hell out of it and just cruising in to a stop and neither seems to stimulate it particularly. This is why I thought it was power steering again, based on the come and go of it. But it smells like oil.
It's sitting on the headers just underneath the passenger side of the car. We have touched nothing over there recently so there's really no reason why it would have occurred so suddenly like it did.
If anyone has any ideas, we're stumped. And it's pretty ****ing annoying. And my parents are going ***** mode about the idea of me getting something else so I'm stuck in this piece of **** lemon of a car.
