Smell oil burning thru interior air vents after oil change

Has anyone had this problem after a oil change from the dealer I put almost 50 miles on & I keep getting a faint oil smell coming thru my air vents

They may have spilled a bit of oil somewhere in the engine bay when doing the oil change, and that may be what you're smelling.

Shouldn't be anything to worry about unless they didn't tighten the filter all the way.. look under your car after a drive and see if anything looks like it's leaking ......
But most likely I bet they spilled it when they filled it up or changing the oil filter... another reason I do my own services.. nobody will cherish your vehicle as well as you will... I just did my oil change Saturday and went out driving.. no odor at all..

Yup, no one cares more for my car than me. Ford tech spilled oil around the filler when he was dumping in the new oil. He left out a cover screw for the filter access panel too. Took me an hour to clean up his mess around and down the passenger valve cover/head. They only charged me 11 for labor and 5 for the filter since I brought in my own oil, I only needed a state emissions and yearly state inspection but I thought while I was there... Didn't turn out so good for my OCD. I won't be back. I will continue to do my own oil changes.

Just a couple of drops of oil on the header pipes can smell for a while...
