I have a 1990 525i and it never had any problems, runs smooth, etc... Just today i started it and it smelled funny so i went and looked at the exhaust and it was putting out a light amount of black smoke along with MAYBE oil. Does anybody know what would cause this to happen so suddenly?

thanks

`Don
