Engine Smoke, need troubleshooting info.

only had the car a couple months. when i had the oil changed i was told the oil filter wasnt secured correctly. which was said to be the explaination of the burning oil smell. however, recently its progressed. no oil leaks on the ground, i can't tell if its leaking and burning off or what. whenever i pop the hood after driving it, the smoke is minor and is coming from inbetween the fuel injector and the engin block but i cant specify where. anyone have the same problem or have any idea whats going on?

Re: Engine Smoke, need troubleshooting info.

Yea i have had this problem, Smoke coming out between the intake manifold and the block, I found that it was my oil filter seal. Also if you have an oil psi guage it could be leaking, but since this is directly above the mid-pipe it most likely leaks down and burns off onto the mid pipe hence no oil spots under the car. This was my problem, so try checking these things. Neither are very hard or expensive to fix, hope this helps
