    Hi,

    I have a 2006 Acura TSX with about 240k on it. It runs great but it does burn some oil. I notice a burning oil smell when I park on an incline with the engine running. I’m pretty sure that’s when the oil burning is happening most. I live on a hill with inclined driveway. Where could it be leaking from? I noticed it seems to happen more frequently after the oil has been changed and is topped off.

    If it is an external leak.
    Look for any wet area(s).
    If none are visible
    Suggest you degrease the engine bay as clean as possible.
    Then look for any leaks.
    Might also inspect for any leak around the rear main seal.
