oil smell

I have been getting an oil smell inside the Jeep since doing an oil change last week. It's not leaking or burning any but it does smell. No check engine light or any drivability issue's

Evolv0 is just really nice
Re: oil smell

If you spilled a little oil during the refill, that will cause a smell for a bit until it burns off.

I've had the same problem on my previous 2012 Overland V8 and current 2014 Summit V8. I noticed that if I don't crank the oil filter on real tight, the sealing ring doesn't seal to the oil filter boss and causes a very small leak. This has also occurred on my 2000 WJ Limited V8 (4.7L) and the 2005 Magnum V8 (5.7L). Seems to be common for the V8 Chrysler engines. I always hate the time when the oil & filter service is due because I always have the same problem. Yet in at least 20 other manufacturers vehicles, I've never had this problem.

Re: oil smell

Try having an inline 6 that motor was designed to let oil run down the side of it haha.
