I have a 1.6 mk 4 astra sxi and a exhaust valve went in the engine last friday,
i took it in to have it done yesterday and got the car back this morning with the new valve, new timing belt and head gasket. when i picked the car I noticed it was blowing a bit of smoke from the exhaust, the mechanic said this was normal and would clear up, well buy this afternoon the car was belching clouds of smoke out, and had used a hell of a lot of oil. has anyone got any idea what this could be?????? as when i called back to the garage they said
" it was nothing we done" so anyone out there help???
