    Default 3.2gsi.........

    is it normal that it smells a bit oily after a good run?

    theres a lot of heat in the engine I've noticed even though it runs at normal temps - 85 deg C.

    I did have a gearbox leak but it was fixed.

    what do you think does yours smell?

    am I missing something?

    cheers.

    You may have a small oil leak which is heating up. They do run warm the 3.2's, i often get big wafts of heat when the car is sitting still.

    thats certainly true, I was tempted to engineer a seperate cold air feed pipe to cool the back of the engine.....?
