fuel injected


is oil also?take off the air breather from the airbox, and look in the throttle, tell me if it is oil, gas, or can't tell...check all the lines, make sure a line from the fuel rail, didn't break...if it is internal in the air intake...also open the oil filler cap, smell exhaust,fuel, or oil...then the coolant reservoir, and smell coolant,fuel, exhaust...same with the exhaust when you start it from a cold and tell me what you smell...allows me to know which side of the gasket, if it is a gasket, it is coming from, what is the coolant level, and oil level, all these things will help me.
