More smoke from the S4!!!
I posted a thread a few months ago regarding my S4 puffing blue smoke when starting.....
Well, the story goes like this
I had a oil service recently, and put a engine conditioner through to "hopefully" clear the problem which was believed to be a hard valve stem seal. I decided to put a 5w 40 oil in also, as I know MRC recommend this on tuned b5's.
anyway, once done, start her up and heypresto, no smoke..........brilliant i thought......
Thing is now, i get smoke coming out the back of engine, from where the turbo lives???? Now, its defiantly burning oil, but I have no idea where from?? is the oil inlet pipes? is the turbo f@cked? thing is, still goes alright and doesnt smoke out the back? I have noticed it gets a fair bit of black soot on the tailpipes though?? Now it is using a bit of oil, but not as much as I expected when seeing the volume of smoke that comes out of it? I have to admit, it does seem to go when the car is warm.
This car is really upsetting me, I treat her so well......... Anyone want to make me an offer and take her on......
Any help would be appreciated
