I bought my rx-7 a month ago and its been running relatively well but i've just noticed that I have a very strong odour coming from my oil pan and it has the unmistakable smell of fuel, and it smells fairly strong. Apart from running a little rough in idle, the car has been running fine, but I know that it should not have fuel in my oil. I'm thinking my rotar seals are not sealing. If anybody has ever experienced a similar problem any info would be much appreciated.

The car has been flooded previously and needs an oil change.

It happens.

Change the oil.
