Just wondering if there are any Subaru experts on yahoo answers? I've got a '97 Legacy GT-B twin turbo and have got a burning oil problem. Both rocker cover gaskets have been replaced and I still have the problem although it's not quite as bad. I've taken it back to the garage that replaced the gaskets and they think it's a perished 'O' ring above the oil cooler but as this is at a low point on the engine i can't see what the oil can be dripping on in order for it to burn. Any help would be very useful thanks....(genuine/sensible answers only please!)There's a smell of burning oil both outside the car and coming in through the air vents when i'm stationary. Also smoke coming from under the bonnet and from behind the near side headlight... Very very annoying, haven't checked the oil level as of yet as the rocker gaskets have only just been done. The car does not smoke from the exhaust when stationary or running..The problem is there is absolutely no space around the engine to try and see if there is a small leak, i've seen a couple of drips running down the sump when i'm parked up but that's about it, this is why i find it hard to believe that it's leaking from above the oil cooler..
