    Common oil leak?

    Had an oil leak back in Jan this year and had the oil return pipe replaced under warranty at the time. Since, it has always been a smoke of burning oil smell coming into the cabin. Took the bus to vx in May and they said it was just the residual of the oil leak, nothing to worry about, . The oil smell becomes stronger and smoke can actually been seen from the turbo - like oil drip onto hot surface, very minor I believe as I don't see much oil lost. What can it be? Doubt its the rover cover or gasket as I don't any oil round there. Any help appreciated, .

    Exactly the same problem I had, turbo was leaking oil externally and running down the hot casing and burning off! On went the VXR turbo.
