I have a 2005 legacy gt limited manual, 143000 miles. The smell of burning oil has been around for the last six thousand miles. Had it checked out and nobody could find anything wrong. Now when my car idles for awhile whether I'm warming it up or at a stop light, smoke/steamy oil vapor comes out from my hood scoop. When the hood is popped I can see the steam coming from the turbo area. The smell is the strongest inbetween the turbo and the cold air intake (mounted in factory location) Possibly where the intake manifold is.... My guess is a bad intake or exhaust manifold gasket, or valve cover gasket, not sure though. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks
