156 1.8TS oil/smoke issues
Hi, i'm new on here & could really use some help!!
I am currently running a 156 1.8 T-spark v reg, i recently noticed the oil light flickering on bends & bumpy roads so i checked it & it was showing completely empty?! (no sign of any obvious leaks anywhere though?) Topped it up but it has since started running rough & sounding like a bag of hammers, also, when left overnight, on first start up there is a lot of white smoke which then clears until next morning, so i decided to check the plugs & found the plug wells had oil in and the plugs were in a right mess & also had oil on them so i replaced them & the cam cover gasket as i was told this gasket could have failed & leaked oil into plug wells. Started up fine after this, no smoke, but very "tappetty". When i checked oil level again it was at minimum but never seems to rise when i add oil???? Started car next day & smoke was back? PLEASE HELP!!!
