So my car had been steadily developing a slight smell of burning oil lately, to the point where the other day I opened the hood and literally saw smoke, so I decided it was time to investigate. I discovered that one valve cover gasket was leaking slightly in the back (which didn't surprise me because I was yet to tighten them down again after my rebuild a little while back), but the main culprit for the smell I discovered was what my Haynes manual calls the EGR cooler; a plate that bolts to the back of the head. I replaced the gasket on this when I rebuilt the motor, but apparently I either didn't tighten it down enough, or the gasket deteriorated somehow. I torqued it down as best I could today and am yet to see if it will leak again. Anyone even know what that thing does? It sure isn't easy to get to, I know that much...
