Burning oil smell at low revs???
Just a quick one if anyone can help.
My 2.0 ts sportwagon has been eating its way through a reasonable amount of oil of late (nearly a 300mls/ltr!). I suspect its a case of more then one thing though!
recently I've been getting a burning oil smell into the cabin but only when I'm I plant the foot at low revs. If I drop a gear and give it some nothing at all, same if I thrash its pants off. It's especially bad in 4th and 5th, climbing hills and wide open throttle below 3000 rpm
I checker the breather from the head to the inlet assuming it may be blocked as it smells like vapour as I'm under the impression its gases escaping from somewhere. But this is clear and seems fine.
I'm not that familiar with the twin spark engine yet, is there a block breather? anywhere else it could be escaping from?
