My car has been drinking oil like a wineo with gift voucher for bargain booze. it was puffing blue smoke in france, after the run it was black smoke quite a bit but not clouds.
I have had it compression tested to find a reading of 250 on all or cylinders. so I have ruled out a piston ring as it has good compression.
The plugs are fine and showing no signs of anything, except one is slightly blacker than the others.
Valve seals has been sugested by a garage but has said it may not be it but he is pretty sure on it. But at £300-£400 est for my head to be reconditioned, its a lot of money to spend when it could be something else.
What else could be at fault there.
Also Im getting a judder from the clutch, now bearing in mind its had a new gear box and uprated clutch only 3k ago what else could it be, could it have out to do with the other fault.
any suggestions are appreciated
