Hi there. What you are describing tends to occur when either an oil line becomes loose or internal engine damage occurs. However, it’s also possible that you have an electrical or ignition system component failure that is causing the hard to start problem; and the engine oil smell is a secondary or non-related issue. It’s probably best to have a professional mechanic come to your location to complete a car is hard to start inspection to determine what is causing your problem.
