    Confirmed, Im buring oil

    I started getting a smell in my STI last friday and wasnt sure what it was. I made a post here asking people for some help. And was told that i am either burning oil or my clutch since i wasnt 100% sure of what i was smelling.

    So this time, on Sunday, when i started gettting the smell again, i pulled over, popped the hood and stuck my nose all over to find the origin of the smell. Since i saw small amounts of smoke this time, im sure im burning oil and not the clutch.

    the smoke was coming for the leftside (turbo-side) behind the engine (betwen firewall and motor). right around the turbo.

    any ideas as to where i could be leaking?
    valve cover gasgett? hopefully not the head gasgett on that side?

    any comments or instructions would be very appreciated.

    There's a lot of things in that area that could be leaking. Sorry, but you're going to have to track it down yourself!
