    Blocked breather pipes from the rocker cover /inlet manifold ,
    they will be blocked with black sludge/carbon , they will need taking off and cleaning ,
    I couldn't tell you exactly where to look for them with out knowing which engine it is even then maybe not , But someone on here will know for sure

    Do you mean that the engine tick's and clicks after its turned off? Like the noise the exhaust makes when it's hot?

    Same Problem

    Hi
    I have exactly the same problem, but I have removed the breather on the rocker and it appears clear, I can actually breath through it, so I am assuming it cannot be this, what do you think? could it be something else. Or am I missing something here?
    Thanks
    Wayne
