I haven't had the time to check it out or write this post up in a more clear description, but when I start my car it smells like there's oil burning.I haven't got a oil change recently and I think it has to do with a spark plug. I was changing out my plugs and wires and dad decided to help. We finished it and I started it up and it began to make a fast ticking sound. After an hour I found that my dad didn't put the 5th cylinder wire in all the way. So I tool care of that and it's been months now and I guess it always smelled that way. I just caught this oil burning smell 'cause I started it up in my garage. Any thoughts?
