Ok so it came to my attention that i may have had an oil leak somewhere and/or didn't put the oil filter on right because when i checked my oil it was dangerously low.
i had it freshly changed with a brand new oil filter n everything, and its been fine recently.
but here's another thing i noticed... OCCASIONALLY, and completely RANDOMLY there will be smoke "puffing" from my engine. ever see someone take a hit off a cig and blow the smoke out? i see it in front of my windshield, and i dont know where its coming from...either the sides of the hood or from near the grille.
question is, what can this smoke be? it's not consistent, and i can go days on end without seeing it. it seems as if it's been more frequent.
also when i turn the car off, it smells like something was burned..maybe the car is just burning oil and thats the smoke from the oil being burned? or could it be something more serious? (97 grand prix gt, 200amp alt, new battery, new air filter, new oil, new oil filter..)
