I haven't noticed smoke, but I will get someone to stand behind the car when
I start it.
What would cause the fuel to get past the pistons?
Think it will soon be time for a new car? It has leaks in the door rubbers,
electrical probs and now this.
It's 13 years old, the engine has done around 62000 miles, the gearbox
around 2000 and the rest of the car around 250,000.
A mechanic friend replaced the oil, he used Castrol GTD Plus 10W-40.
no recent work under the bonnet, last work that was done there was about 6
months ago, belts and filters.
It's had an oil leak for some time but we think that is gearbox oil, getting
a new seal washer and replacing the gearbox oil
unless one of the injectors has stuck open,, leaking fuel in to the
cylinder, this would then run in to the sump and would explain the increase
in oil level,
but I would imagine this would also cause the car to run rough with black
Ah, that could be the problem, thanks,
the guy who usually does the work on my car is on holiday for a week,
as soon as he gets back I will ask him to check that out.
I have an electrical prob that we never got to the bottom of so I
disconnect my battery every night, I don't suppose a faulty injector
coud cause battery drain ?
