It won't do anything to you if you smell motor oil.

There'd be a lot of mechanics and lube techs in hospitals and/or dying at under 30 years old if the smell of oil was especially harmful or fatal. In other words, don't worry about it.

Not harmful. But hard to clean up.

No. A whiff of it will not affect you. If you inhaled the fumes for a long period it might well do some harm.

I think it's bad when a nonChristian smells it.
