    Car smells like oil after service?

    Howdy all; just got my car serviced this morning (just regular oil change etc.) and now it smells a bit like oil when I was driving it this afternoon. Is this something to be worried about or is it normal? Car seems to be shifting a bit smoother after oil change but I haven't driven it enough yet to tell.

    Probably just some oil dripped on the exhaust.

    Seems to be gone now. Could have been that, or I wonder if I was just smelling other cars' exhausts more. The reason being that it was the first cold, snowy day in a long time, and you can always smell cars more on those types of days than on nice days.
