Just picked up an 05 with about 80k on it. I have a strong fuel smell in the oil and also a burning oil smell. I am sure the oil is seeping out of a gasket somewhere (not my first scooby, not my first rodeo w/ a fuji boxer) At this point I am tempted to just have the motor pulled, rings replaced, timing belt, etc just because it is getting close to timing belt time anyways and I have no idea what the previous owner put this car through.
Any actual mechs out there that can tell me how much $$$ I may be looking at to get this done. Also, any maintenance I can do to alleviate any no-brainers. I plan on doing plugs, wires, PCV, and cleaning the MAF this weekend. Anything else?
