Hey, just got my MY05 2.5i Legacy Wagon, car was shipped from the east coast (Pennsylvania) and I now own in it Portland, OR, a perfect home!

Anyways, car was a repo, and was about a quart low maybe a little less, oil was very dirty, black, but not sludge, so changed the oil and air filter.

Now, when I have the outside air on I can smell a little bit of burning oil maybe, or some other lubricant. Car has ~154k on it, I think the rings may be going. On the other hand I don't see any smoke out the exhaust, car runs great, drives great, need to replace the plugs/wires...

Wondering if installing/replacing a new cabin filter would fix this? Obviously not the oil burning, but the smell...
