hey everyone! i just got back from lake placid new york and i have a little problem.. the screw and washer in my oil pan always had a lil drip of oil comeing out of it.. i tried tighting it with everything.. but it always leaked a little.. when i came home from vactaion (i drove my car up and back) it was fine.. then when i came back from my friends house i smelled burning oil and i just thought i was the guy in front of me.. but when i got home i saw a lil tiny bit of smoke comeing from my hood... i opend it and saw smoke not think but a little bit of smoke comeing from the down pipe and turbo.. then i check my oil and it was about a quart low i barly had any oil on the dip stick... i doubt very very much it could of leaked that much from my oil pan.. but i have no idea why it would be burning oil.. and when i put a quart in it still did it when the oil level was right on.. i have no idea what could be causeing it soo iam bring it to my suby dealer.. all i have in it is a turboX utech.. but its on stock mode because iam waiting for my perrin up and down pipe... do you think they would care about a utech or should i try to hide it? well i hope everything turns out ok.. if you have any help i would be very greatful..

I have the same problem. But, I don't really think it's a problem. I use Mobil 1 synthetic oil, too. after about 5-7k miles the oil starts to read low then I just add one quart of oil and it's basck to full. It's wierd isn't it?

They technically cannot even tell you not to use synthetic oil because of the law.
