So this has recently started. I have an 09 MAlibu LT 2.4L. has 87k miles. i recently replaced both intake and exhaust solenoids. Starting to smell burning oil coming, mainly from the outside. Any ideas? I do plan on replacing my plugs next weekend as well

Have you checked the undercarriage for oil? Start there to see if you can find an external source for the leak. Also, check your oil levels...

I opened my hood yesterday when i came back from work. The smell wasnt as strong when the engine bay was open. i could not see any leaks. UNdercarriage is clean. i do the underbody wash when i wash my car. Im thinking it could be plugs related? It is starting to start a little rough now.
