How does the oil look and smell

Customer: replied 3 months ago.

Just changed thought it may of had gas in it. No change after oil change.

Expert:  JON replied 3 months ago.

If it is only doing it when at idle, it sounds like the oil is passing the rings on piston. Do you have oil seepage around head or valve covers?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.

You were right it is a ring issue....... Thank You
