I see smoke coming out of the hood and I smell the oil.
Several mechanics (non Subaru specialists) have not found any leaks.
It burns probably a quart every 1000 miles.
I have kept on top of my oil -- but my local Subaru dealer won't even look at it without spending $200. Unfortunately, I cannot go taking apart my engine myself (for various reasons) to find the cause.
When I try to pin-point the smoke it "seems" like it comes from the turbo area, but it could be coming anywhere around the engine....
How can I pin-point the issue and get it taken care of?
Are there further steps I can take start ruling things out and narrowing in on the cause?
2002 Sedan with almost 100k and I have been using Mobil 1 synthetic.
Stage 2 Cobb (turboback w/ tuned ECU)
I got it used at 56K miles.
The issue has been going on for the last 3 oil changes (9 months).
