About a month ago the water pump failed on my Jeep Liberty, and the engine overheated, but didn’t boil over. The mechanic warned at the time that the head gasket may fail, but that he didn’t see anything at that time. Within a week we began smelling burning oil (at least i think its burning oil) and I placed card board under it and am catching about 2-3 drops every time i park (thats it). I’m checking the oil level regularly and there is no noticeable change. The burning oil smell continues.
- Could this be a head?
- If it is, and is a small leak, could a product like stop leak be used?
