My problem is with oil leaks is the smell. My head cover gasket leaked oil into the spark plug well and when you'd sit at intersections all you could smell was burning oil. To me it's a terrible smell because of certain memories it brings back. I used to work on cars as a kid and every whiff of that I get reminds me of all the leaky old shitboxes I had to deal with.
