Oil WIERDNESS!!

I just changed my 924s's oil and noticed a fuel odor comming from the spent oil. My oil light also comes on erratically- sometimes flashing and sometimes steadily, and sometimes not at all. Iv'e thought about the oil pressure sending unit, but the pressure gauge acts normally, idling at 3 or so, and at 4-5 or so when under load. But of course that still wouldnt explain the contamination. In any case im not driving her untill this is fixed because I understand this could cause serious engine bearing damage. Thanks much for your help

sounds like fuel blow by in the cylinders. have you done a compression/leak down check? could also be that the crank case is not venting properly. may be other problems as well.

Stuck injector. Need to pull the fuel rail and pressurize the system to see if one is leaking. Don't let this go. You can quickly ruin your engine.

When was the last time you changed your timing and balance belts and/or cam chain and tensioner?

No, i havn't done a compression/leakdown test- ill look in to that as well as the injectors, but im not clear on how the crank case vents and what would block that from happening?
