I just recently change my oil and ever since, then (2 days now) my engine kinda gives off a light oil smell. Sometimes I get it through the vents.

Now the weather has been nicer and I have been pushing the car more, so maybe that's the reason, but the car doesn't overheat and I have the correct amount of oil in the engine.

BTW I'm using Mobil 10w30 with a K&N oil filter. Also replaced the spark plugs with NGK Iridium ones.

Is it normal to get that light oil scent or do I have to check something over?

You may have dripped a bit on the header underneath the oil filter...???

Maybe make sure your oil filter is on tight and not dripping at all...

Thanks I'll double check that when I get home tonight.

I might just be paranoid since this is my first car and my first time doing an oil change.

Thanks again.
