Oil smell and occasion smoke from ac (Citroen DS3)

Post by Arcann »

Hi Everyone,

Got an oil smell coming from ac as well as some smoke from the ac earlier today, that only happens when stationary. Small oil leak came up on my MOT a couple months ago and last 2 months been having to top up engine oil every 3 weeks but been told they tend to burn oil anyway.

Was wondering if anyone knew what this smell could be, how to fix, or whether this means oil leak is worsened and need to get sorted?

More details are needed. What year is your car and which engine does it have ? Can you see exactly where the smoke is coming from ? Where abouts is the oil leak ?
