You smell it under the hood or or the pipes? How many miles on the engine and does it leak and/or burn oil?

02 Chevy Trailblazer LS (110K+ miles - loaded except for 4WD - WRECKED!)
99 Chevy Cavalier LS (105K+ miles - commuter car)

As @Steve is saying, usually when you smell oil burning, you have an oil leak.
So, before you pull the engine, lift the hood and look for an oil leak.
If you hear a knock, it is probably because the oil level is low.
Find the leak, fix it and top up the oil and you may be good to go.Ray
