Indeed! Only reason I ask is I recently saw an Audi diesel getting packed off to a scrappers as the owner mysteriously found more oil in his sump. He was running a diesel tuning box (ebay special) which had given him big power but (quote) "loads and loads of crappy black smoke". On sniffing the dipstick it was clear the sump was full of oil/diesel mix. Now I've come across that sort of bore-wash before (on a Range Rover V8 - fuel in sump) but never on a diesel.No I didn't. But, this will also sound strange, I thought there was a smell not unlike aircraft fuel from the car. Never had a smell like that from a car!
Willie is on 2 weeks holiday just now. I remember seeing the car before now that I have seen it in the compound.Laura and Willie know about it as I was in past a week past Wednesday and Willie took it for a drive to see what the problem was. I'll give them a call in the morning.
Yea seen the Tech doing the oil and filter change today then going for road test, Sure its back on the ramp again though. Place is really busy just now, no time to stop for a sec this weekYes it was. They've opened a case with Alfa Technical. Oil level way over the max again so oil, filter and forced re-gen is the first port of call.
Yeah it broke down on the road test and had to be recovered! Fuel pump ordered from Italy on a "first time fit" (4 day delivery) so they can return it if it's not that. Going to stretch into next week nowYea seen the Tech doing the oil and filter change today then going for road test, Sure its back on the ramp again though.
