    loosing some oil

    As some of you know i am in the middle of changing my turbo as i thought this was the reason for where my oil was going but since i have removed it all seems to be ok oil wise but it is cracked so needs changing anyway.

    My problem now is finding where the oil is passing from to get into the bores/exhaust to be getting burn off.

    From what i have figured out from when the smokes comes and goes its when the engine has been sat ticking over and then when driving at 30mph or below it continues to smoke when i drive. once the speed has been increased the oil seems to get burnt off and then it is fine. this would also explain why at the yorkshire R&R day the car smoked like hell for the first 3 runs and cleared on the last one.

    Anyone had any simular problems or anyideas of what fault could be causing the fault?

    cheers kev
