Almost always oil leaking from the VCG. Inspect the likely areas thoroughly.

i'll check this weekend. i did take it for a spin weds.. figures i didn't smell a thing. i did notice the other day that there were seeds in engine compartment likely from a chipmonk. do you think the seeds were heating up? i didn't think they were near enough to do that. will clean them out also.
