Default Foul oil odor after engine has warmed up

I have a problem with my s80 T6 (1999) after I have driven some I can smell an oil/exhaust smell inside the car.I took it in to a dealer but they couldn't find any problem. Any ideas of what this could be? I read abouta similar problem on a Volvo 850 in this forum where the owner replaced theturbo return tube and that took care of the problem...

Thanksfor any suggestions!

Do you have oil leaks?

Yes, I do. Any ideas? Oil is spilling on a hot engine part?

Might be it or clogged vent system and smell escaping from engine.
