    Strong smell in Z

    Just bought a 2002 z28 M6 with 35,000 miles that is 100% stock including the original tires which were still in decent shape. Car was babied entire life and I freakin love it. Only issue I have is a strong odor of not really exhaust but oil smell from the moment the car starts to highway cruising. I need to crack the window or turn on air to make it better but it never really goes away. I don,t think its an exhaust leak but it may be possible. The smell reminds me more of an oil blowby smell(?). Any thoughts out there in LS land.

    I think I have heard of something along the lines of oil getting into the A/C, or maybe it was coolant. but yeah. Im pretty sure someone on here will know the answer better than me

    for some reason these cars have had an issue with the oil in the refridgeration system blowing out the vents in a vapor which does cause an odor. this also happens on the s and t series trucks (S-10) there is a bulletin on it and you local dealer should have a cure for it.
