    Default 05 OB XT burning oil smell and smoke

    I bought a 05 Outback XT that has the same engine as my 08 WRX but I seem to be having a problem with the Outback XT. There is a strange oil burning smell after driving it around and also some some coming from under the hood by the turbo area. Any ideas? Also after the car has been running the radiator is hot but the turbo inner cooler is cold. shouldnt it be hot like the radiator is?

    If there are no obvious oil leaks make sure you don't have an axle boot that is torn. If it is it will spit great onto the exhaust as you described
