Oil Smell after hard driving

Recommended Posts

I was getting the same with my 99 996. I found there is a nut on the bottom of the motor. It's a valve for something or other. It wasn't completely tightened and was leaking just a drop or two of oil that would blow back onto the mufflers when I was driving it hard giving me a burnt oil smell. Once I finally tightened it up and stopped the drip, the smell went away.

My 2005 S has about 22000 miles on it and I still get the "hot" smell. A year or so ago, I asked the dealer what it was and the service manager said it was just the cosmoline burning off the engine. He said don't worry about it. I figure that after enough miles, it will have all burned off and the smell will disappear. We'll see. John

Sorry, A 997-1 C2S with 60k miles.

I do smell my burning tires on auto-x but do not smell any engine oil in excess. But 1 day on auto-x burned oil from full to one mark down. So some oil does get burned there, depending of exact definition of 'spirited'.

I drive the S^%T out of mine and to be honest, the aroma created by the combination of hot tires and whatever residue lands on the engine block from time to time is kind of nice.
