is it a gas smell or is your oil level rising?


If you have gasoline in the engine oil I would suspect a stuck open fuel injector. Get it fixed ASAP. If the injector is sticking the engine oil will be washed off of the cylinder wall. This may cause extreme wear in the cylinder and damage the cylinder, piston and rings. Is you oil level as measured by the dipstick over full? Is your engine running smoothly? Is the check engine light on?
