Help! 147 has a serious drink problem
Recently bought a 147 2.0l TS, lovely car well looked after, runs really well goes like a rocket, BUT we've only done 700 miles and had to put 10 litres of oil in, no symptoms except belching out BLACK smoke when accelerated hard and a whistle from the engine bay above 2800 revs which sounds like you're blowing down a fluted flexible plastic tube. Bear in mind there is no blue smoke on start up, none that I can notice on hard acceleration, no blue smoke on gearchanging, no oil leaks from the engine, no oil on drive, no oil on underside of car, the engine is not mechanically noisy, it has a full service history, engine has only just done 100,000 miles. I noticed exhaust is quite sooty . Anyone got any ideas please?
