Gear Oil smell


Recommended Posts

Hi all, more of a general question than a techy one. Just coming up to 1000 miles on my Zetec with type 9 and Sierra LSD. Being enjoying the loud pedal a lot but notice a quite a strong gear oil smell when the cars hot, absolutely no leaks I can see. Is this normal as I see the diff has a breather pipe?
