It seems as though your head gasket is shot. Take it to a garage and see what they have to say.

SOURCE: ON 2002 ALTIMA 2.5 I FOUND OIL

I would try snugging down all the valve cover bolts before replacing anything. A valve cover gasket kit should have the grommets and gaskets necessary to repair this if you find no loose bolts.

Try checking ubder the car and look at the exhaust system. A bag may have blew ubnder the car and had gotten caught on the hot exhaust system and melted.

What is causing


There is a possibility that you have a bad oil leak some where. Check valve covers, oil pan Etc, Good-Day! The sound you hear from engine, is because there is little oil getting to the tappets on engine for the valves. Sounds like the oil is running down on hot exhaust manifold, and smoking.That is the smell. Have it checked by a mechanic to find cause. Of oil leak!

Smoking from under hood


A leak of some fluid, probably oil, dripping onto the exhaust. This smells terrible, and it only needs a drop or two.

You may have put in too much oil. Check the oil level dipstick and see if the oil level is above the full mark. If so, you'll have to drain some out until it is down to the full mark. Too much oil will block engine crankcase venting passages and lead to pressurization of the crankcase.

If the oil level checks out okay, check for a stuck positive crankcase ventilation valve (PCV). If the crankcase cannot vent blowby gases, it will pressurize and oil will be forced past the intake and exhaust valve guide seals causing heavy oil burning. The engine will also run terrible.

If you had to add oil, more then likely there an oil leak could be a gasket or oil seal, where ever the leak is at it's falling on the exhaust manifold and burning the oil, that's what you smell. Have it check cause low oil will damage you engine.

Go to the shop, remove the oil dipstick and smell the oil, ( well maybe first you should get a base line by smelling normal, new oil) if you burned up your oil, it will smell really bad like burnt....well burnt oil like when a car is blowing blue smoke. If it smells really bad like burnt, they are probably telling you the truth and you need to find out where the oil leaked out...if it seems like the oil drained out the oil pan or the filter, the people who changed your oil could be held liable for not tightening down those parts properly. Since you werent burning oil, my guess is that you were leaking it. If the motor will not turn over but you can hear the starter engage, you definatley seezed up you engine. But i really really hope that the mechanics are full of **** and that you do not need to replace your engine. No matter what you do, keep any parts removed from your vehicle to have inspected by another mechanic for review. For instance, if you have brake pads replace at the discression of the mechanic, ask for the old brake pads back and take to antoher shop to see if they really needed to be replaced or not.

Generally that smell is caused by an oil leak that is getting on either the exhaust pipe or manifold (doesn't take much to smell). As far as bottle getting low, I've got a 93 that never stays full but only needs coolant in the radiator about once every two months. Been like that for two or three years and has never overheated. I'm sure there is a small leak somewhere, but I'm not driving myself crazy looking for it. Check all hose connections, and look on the ground after being parked overnight...If it's leaking, something will show up. But if the radiator is staying full, just check it when checking oil level.
