    Check the inside of your...

    Hi, can someone or prefferably a few people check the inside of ther oil filler cap and see if you can see any sort of mesh grill of whether you can just see straight into your rocker box?
    I'm just wondering whether i'm missing a mesh to stop the oil spitting up as i think this may be the reason i'm getting oil into my inlet manifold and burning off into white smoke from the exhaust.

    thanks alot in advance. any other suggestions happily taken

    You can't see the cams/valve gear looking in through the filler on a 20v motor as there are 2 plastic caps that fit over the inlet cams to stop oil from being flicked up...

    If you are getting oil in the inlet mani then there is an issue with the PCV system or split pipes... if you are getting white smoke then you aren't burning oil as that would be blue... you are burning water...

    i meant oil is being flicked up towards filler cap then being sucked through the air hose through the throttle body and into the manifold. should of been abit more clear on that.

    I thought that about the smoke, but it could only be coolant right? but thats stayed full, however my oil has dropped.

    Will try this new air hose, if that doesn't work i might have to take it to a garage (its not the price, its the pride aha)

    well at first it was smoking lightly for the first several miles, then it switched to starting to smoke after the engines warmed up after several miles and not stopping :/

    And yes its 1.6 8 valve
